PointCab and Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks and CATIA
You achieve an effective workflow when you preprocess your desired results in PointCab.
 –  With PointCab, you create true-to-deformation plans, layouts, sections, views, meshes, DTMs, vector drawings and other more easily and quickly as in your CAD system. Then, you can use the results in your CAD system thanks to the universal DWG format.
 Due to PointCab, you can easily and quickly work with Allplan, even with huge point clouds. By generating plans and sectional views as ortho photos, you transfer only the information that is relevant for modeling.
 With PointCab, you can “adjust” your point cloud for Allplan. You can just extract the desired areas of the point cloud or single 3D points and reduce data volume extremely while maintaining the desired accuracy.
SolidWorks and CATIA plugin “TOMORAMA” from GEOSAT for import of ortho photos (optional)
The GEOSAT plug-in supports you additionally for importing layouts and sections created in PointCab.
Using PointCab and the plug-in, you can transfer and manage sectional views of any size efficiently. Other software solutions, which create sectional views out of the point cloud, not always succeed in handling large projects or large ortho photos.
