Pointfuse is transforming the point cloud to 3D modeling process!

What is Pointfuse

Pointfuse is a powerful modeling engine that delivers an automatic, precise and flexible way of converting the vast point cloud datasets generated by laser scanners or photogrammetry into segmented mesh models.

Designed for anyone capturing or using point cloud data, Pointfuse uses advanced statistical techniques to create 3D models where individual surfaces can be selected and classified as new layers in the Pointfuse environment and exported to IFC and FBX for manipulation in any industry-standard CAD system.


Why use Pointfuse


Rapidly access and share results of 3D capture in your Asset or BIM process, moving the project start forward. Generate selectable mesh models not dumb mesh models.


Pointfuse V3 provides a unique approach, classifying objects within a 3D scene. Surfaces within the 3D mesh models produced by Pointfuse V3 can now be identified, grouped and classified. These advancements within Pointfuse V3 bring a catalyst to the workflow of design and engineering projects offering efficiencies that have not been possible when working with point clouds or traditional mesh models

Pointfuse V3, significantly reduces the file size of 3D models created from point clouds. In simple terms, we have reduced the data density within each surface whilst still maintaining the fidelity of the model. This results in a reduction in model size by a factor of ten, making ongoing use of the model easier, faster and more efficient

Conversion times depend on the size of point data and the conversion resolution. But for example, a point cloud of 7GB can be converted to a model at 0.025 resolution in 20 minutes.

The automatic data conversion process in Pointfuse V3 reduces the cost of projects undertaken by anyone using a 3D reality capture system to supply data for use in 3rd party architecture or engineering design solutions.
