Seamless Integration of 3D Scanner Data with Autodesk 2018 Design Tools
FARO, world source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, construction BIM/CIM, product design, public safety forensics, and 3D solutions, announces the availability of the FARO PointSense 18.0 software suite (http://www.faro.com/aecsoftware18-0/).
This robust software platform evolution delivers seamless integration into the latest 2018 AutoCAD and Revit design tools, a better user experience, improved software handling, and enhanced efficiency in processing software data.
The suite includes:
- PointSense basic/Pro for AutoCAD
- PointSense Building for AutoCAD
- PointSense Heritage for AutoCAD
- PointSense Plant for AutoCAD
- PointSense for Revit
The one stop bundle and compatibility across the broad range of Autodesk architecture, engineering, construction and surveying products makes this the most cost effective solution of its kind currently available.
Seamless Integration and Enhanced User Experience
PointSense 18.0 resets the bar for “ready to go”. It includes the same high value, beneficial use features and functionality with which savvy AutoCAD and Revit users are already familiar. The addition of a new, step by step guidance screen assures that even less familiar users can get up to speed quickly and optimize their workflow.
Improved Confidence in Accuracy
PointSense 18.0 for Revit is the first software platform to incorporate Levels of Accuracy as defined USBID (U.S. Institute of Building Documentation) standards. This enhanced analysis tool enables users to more confidently validate the accuracy of the as-built model compared to the relevant point cloud, i.e. the set of data points acquired by a 3D laser scanner.
The improvement in scan navigation functionality was driven by direct user feedback, supports greater efficiency and assures that the user is able to get to a result faster than ever before. With just a double click, users can move from one scan perspective to another inside a given point cloud.
“We continue to push forward in our commitment to creating even more value for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction market segments,” states Andreas Gerster, Vice President Global Construction BIM-CIM business unit.
“PointSense 18.0, used in combination with 3D laser scanners such as the industry leading FARO Focus3D is a direct reflection of this commitment, as it delivers a powerful new set of easy to use software solutions in a single package. We are both excited and validated about the unique value that PointSense 18.0 delivers not only to AutoCAD and Revit users in general, but also as a tightly integrated, high performance bundle for FARO Focus3D Scanner users.”
