Area model of a facade
Scanning a facade using a laser scanner is a rather easy task , contrary to analyzing and evaluating obtained data.With the help of our Mesh tool you can create an area model of a facade. In order to do it activate the Mesh tool :
Select inner area of the facade. Close the selection by selecting the its start point again. In Job Editor you can define area’s settings. In case of a facade meshing precision of 1 cm makes sense :
Now you can start processing. After completing the processing, PointCab displays the mesh as an orthophoto.
For further mesh analysis you can have a look on it in our 3D View. In order to start it open the Job. 3D opens in a new tab. Left click to have a look on your 3D area model.
The default position of rotation point is always in the middle of the project. To change it cha hold down the scroll wheel on your mouse and move the rotation point as you wish :
Finally you can open the results in your CAD Program. Right click the Job to open its storage path :
Now select a CAD file :
