Automate scan-to-deliverable workflows

July 19th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, launched Leica Cyclone 3DR, a reality capture software that fuses technology for centralised, full-scale point cloud management from Leica Cyclone with advanced, automated point cloud analysis and modelling from 3DReshaper. The software delivers a simplified platform for surveying, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and tank inspection applications. With industry-centric guided workflows, it includes adaptable features for automating cleaning, modelling, meshing, extraction, inspection and reporting. An assortment of 3D deliverables can be created to meet the needs of reality capture professionals across a wide spectrum of fields. Specialised workflows, such as construction monitoring, tunnelling surveying and tank inspecting (based on the API 650/653 standard) are also available. The software further connects the use of reality capture into multiple industries through its wide support of data formats, including IFC, STL, OBJ, VRML, DXF, STEP, IGES and more. The new Leica Cyclone 3DR laser enables rapid validation of design and construction activities through the integration of Leica JetStream technology and BIM model support.
