An innovative point cloud meshing software solution that automatically converts point clouds of any scale or source to meshes quickly and accurately.
Accelerate time to decision by quickly converting any point cloud data into 3D models.
As scanner technology has developed, the number of points and fidelity of data contained within a source point cloud has expanded dramatically. Today, point clouds are typically very large data files containing useful measurement and survey data. Managing such large files can mean this data is very slow to work with and difficult to move around and collaborate with, but there is an alternative. If you use reality capture data as part of a decision-making process – whether that is visualization, scan-to-CAD, scan to plan or scan-to-BIM – then Pointfuse’s suite of mesh model software products is for you.
Reduce files sizes by up to 90%, reducing the burden on IT and opening up cloud collaboration and cloud project management solutions to your team
70% faster delivery of as-built models, saving time and money
Automated process that has been designed to be easy to use – little training required
Integrates seamlessly with most 3rd party software for downstream modelling
Reduces the reliance on outsourced modelling teams
The more people that can access, view and understand the scan data, the better the return on investment from scanning. PointFuse was designed to streamline and enhance the creation of mesh models. Designed to enable all formats of point cloud data to be imported and intelligently converted into an industry standard or proprietary data structure that can be easily manipulated and accessed across project teams.
Mapped to the standardised IFC scheme, PointFuse Space Management exports 2D floor plans, 3D BIM models and PDF building reports that implement IPMS office conventions. This brings comprehensive reporting and easy integration to existing facility management operations and systems. See it in action with IBKS!
PointFuse mesh models are highly optimized, reducing the working data size a factor or up to 100%, making them significantly easier to use and share with online 3D collaboration portals, such as BIM 360, Revitzo, Procore, 3D Repo, and Trimble Connect when compared to the original point cloud.

A semi-automatic scan to BIM solution, creating parameterized models quickly and easily. The Space Management workflow accelerates the use of reality capture for space and facility management and lease survey workflows. Walls, windows and doors within the mesh are converted to simple BIM families without the need for a library of objects. All editing takes place within PointFuse itself so no plugins for third party software are required.
PointFuse uses multi core processing to offer users a scaled solution for processing unlimited point clouds.
The ability to classify objects within PointFuse has had a huge impact on how as-built is utilized within digital design workflows. Being able to quickly compare specific as-built objects with the design to run clash detection, reduces the number of false clashes being flagged, a key advantage of using as-built software.
IFC templates can be created and edited for specific applications like architectural, MEP and HVAC so that selected objects can be classified and mapped to ensure compatibility with BIM software. Individual asset ID’s can also be assigned to objects, helping identification and automation in asset management workflows.
Increasing visibility and reliability through the simulation and control of an asset from its Digital Twin makes for an effective strategy to improve system performance. Reducing risks and lowering project costs. Find out more from RealVisuals!

PointFuse classified mesh models replace some of the manual modeling of a point cloud into BIM, which is often a large cost and time delay on any refurbishment project
Classified meshes highlight object-to-object clashes, which means fewer false positives and a more effective coordination process
Annual licence: $8,750.00
PointFuse Pro incorporate the innovative Space Management module which enable you to automatically convert classified mesh walls, windows and doors into ‘family’ groups for use with popular downstream BIM software and FM software.
IFC standards adopted for BIM modelling
Outputs LOD200BIM, 2D floor plans and IPMS (office) building reports
Reduces the reliance for outsourcing modelling
Ideally suited to large-scale projects and SLAM based data capture technologies
If you have multiple users who use PointFuse, a Team license is a cost-effective option. Team licenses can only be bought in addition to at least one active license for PointFuse Standard or Pro. Meshing functionality isn’t included in a Team license, but all editing functionality included in the mirrored full version is.
Enhance your design processes with our free plugin.
The PointFuse mesh plugin is a great alternative to using point cloud data in Autodesk ® Revit®, reducing the time to create a BIM model by 36%* when compared to modelling with a point cloud. The PointFuse mesh is just 3% the size of the source point cloud.
Available with PointFuse Standard or Pro software, a point cloud is automatically converted into a segmented mesh model, which can then be classified. Once ready, this mesh is published to a PointFuse Revit ® File format (.prf) using the ‘Publish to Revit®’ command, ready to be linked into any existing Revit project on any users machine, whether they have a license of PointFuse or not. This means all project team members can access and effectively use the reality capture data that has been captured for the project.

PointFuse Powered by JetStream has been developed in partnership with Leica Geosystems for users of Leica’s 3D laser scanning technology who wish to leverage Leica’s JetStream ecosystem. Annual subscriptions are available for both the Standard and Pro versions. PointFuse powered by JetStream works with LGS files enabling you to instantly view and use scanned data, without having to import it first.
In addition, Leica’s infield geo-tagging solution, currently available with the RTC360, facilitates the auto classification of PointFuse meshes from geo-tagged scanned data, thus reducing the time to classify and removes the subjective interpretation of objects that are difficult to identify solely from the scanned data in the modelling process.
