CLOUD POINT SCAN PROCESSING
Construction professionals and contractors use 3D models for various pre-and during-construction tasks, such as layout planning and machine control. Multiple methods can generate models, but point cloud modelling is notable for its accuracy and speed.
A point cloud is a set of data points arranged in three dimensions. The surveyor uses a 3D laser scanning technique to create the point cloud. It measures several surface points within range. Once the entire site has been scanned and we have data corresponding to all surfaces in the area, the issues can be stitched together to form the original representation.
The question for many professionals is what to do after the point cloud has been generated. Although point clouds can be examined directly, this data type could be more practical for many design applications. The obtained data must be transformed into a CAD-ready model before it can be used. Takeoff professionals (TOPS) perform point cloud services and mesh transformations to process required data quickly.
