Our company deals with point cloud processing, creation of 3D CAD models and 2D CAD documentations for technical facilities, building equipment, conveying technology etc. For these jobs, we usually use FARO scanners as well as Autodesk and Bentley CAD software.
With PointCab, we cannot only process point clouds from one laser scanner manufacturer, but the software supports all common point cloud formats. We use PointCab for creating 2D CAD documentations based on the point cloud; we create façade plans, layouts and sectional views.
In case of façade views, we like that we can easily generate colored ortho photos. We use them even for complex documentations of objects in the field of monument preservation, e.g. castles and churches.
In larger industrial projects, in which we shall create complete CAD documentations of halls, we use PointCab layouts even as a basis for project meetings.
In combination with HTML5 panoramas, PointCab is a perfect tool. Our customers don’t need any special software. The layouts can be saved as high-definition images and you only need a web browser for panoramas.
