Software

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.

Introducing segmented meshes

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.

Export 2D floor plans, 3D BIM models and PDF building reports

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!

Analyse, manage and collaborate on photo realistic models

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. Visit the Autodesk BIM 360 page to find out or see it in action with Stageport!

Space Management tool automatically creates parameterized BIM models

A semi-automatic scan to BIM solution, creating parameterized models quickly and easily. The Space Management tool 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.

Unlimited point cloud conversion

PointFuse uses multi core processing to offer users a scaled solution for processing unlimited point clouds.

Classify and add asset IDs to specific as-built objects quickly

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.

Meshes are smaller in size than the point cloud, which means they can be viewed and shared more easily via cloud collaboration platforms such as Autodesk Construction Cloud and Procore BIM

Classification and texture can be maintained on export into other construction software such as Autodesk, Navisworks and Revizto, to provide context of the whole project

PointFuse Team

Providing scaleability at a reduced cost

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.

PointFuse mesh plugin for Revit®

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

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.
