A new release of Pointfuse Pro now automatically textures the generated 3D model
Arithmetica has released Pointfuse 1.1, which quickly and automatically converts point clouds to vector models.. Vector models have a far smaller memory footprint than the original point data, so need less computing power to visualise and manipulate, and contain richer geometrical properties than point clouds.
The new release of Pointfuse Pro now automatically textures the generated 3D models by using RGB, intensity or statistical derived values. Using the original RGB values from the point cloud the software can now automatically add real world context to the generated models that can be exported to DAE or OBJ format.
Also new in this release, scaled ortho images from the point cloud can be used alongside Pointfuse generated vectors or, independent workflows to produce plans, elevations or sections, using third party CAD and modelling software. Using the selections tools, ortho images can be created from any angle and direction producing high resolution scaled images that can be used to draw, measure or take dimensions from.
