Arithmetica will launch a brand new version of Pointfuse at the SPAR 3D Expo in Texas this month. Pointfuse V2 represents a major change in the way that point cloud data is automatically converted to three dimensional vector models.
Offering a “one button” approach, the new techniques in Pointfuse V2 not only convert point clouds into 3D vector models with accurate geometry, but also enable shapes in these models to be isolated and manipulated in third party software to a greater extent than before. In addition to the official launch of Pointfuse V2 on Booth 518, Arithmetica will also demonstrate the use of Pointfuse V2 at the DotProduct booth (417) on Wednesday 13th at 10:30.
The SPAR 3D Expo and Conference takes place from April 11-14, 2016 at The Woodlands in Texas. SPAR 3D, formerly SPAR International, is the premier global market place for 3D technologies. It is the only vendor neutral conference and exhibition in this sector and is aimed at users in the oil and gas, AEC (architecture / engineering / construction), surveying and mapping and transport and civil infrastructure sectors, as well as users from law enforcement, digital historic preservation and industrial facilities.
“Because SPAR 3D occupies a unique position within the 3D sector it is the perfect event for the official launch of Pointfuse V2,” commented Mark Senior, Business Development Manager at Arithmetica – the company behind Pointfuse. “Pointfuse V2 is set to revolutionize the way we generate, manipulate and use vector data, and focus on results, allowing end users to focus on the destination rather than the journey.”
Pointfuse V2 allows users to generate 3D geometry automatically and in a matter of minutes, regardless of the source of the point cloud. Unlike meshing techniques, the vector geometries produced by Pointfuse V2 are separated along natural break lines or edges, allowing manipulation using a variety of design or manufacturing software.
“Pointfuse V2 addresses so many pain points,” continued Senior. “It rapidly produces vectors with only the click of one button, making the software easy to use with literally no training or learning of software. The resulting geometries of shapes and objects can then be easily exported and used in a wide variety of workflows.”
