A point cloud is a set of data points in a co-ordinate system which represent the external surface of an object. Carried out using 3D laser scanners, which measure a large amount of points on an object’s surface, it is an astonishingly accurate and speedy technique.
Point cloud to CAD is ideal for manufacturing parts, quality inspections and any project which requires visualisation and mass customisation applications. It is the ideal starting point for the making of CAD models, or models made of either polygon or triangle mesh.
At Hope Draughting, we use the latest 3D laser scanning techniques to produce a point cloud.
Using 3D laser scanning, we’re capable of producing over 100,000 3D measurements per second, which are then converted into a 3D point cloud which can be used to make a solid CAD model.
By using our point cloud software, you can save time and money on the alteration of site arrangements or mechanical parts.
Our point cloud modelling is popular with design consultants, engineers, installers and manufacturers. Based in Widnes, Cheshire, we cover the whole of the UK, including the South East. Our previous 3D modelling projects include a Brewery Tank Farm, Pumping Room, Thickening Plant, Waste Canister Cage and Materials Handling Plant.
