Pay-per-use cloud service adds CAD software

August 5th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

GeoCloud now runs NanoCAD professional CAD software. The NanoCAD has a familiar interface, powerful drafting and design tools, native DWG compatibility, and an open API. The software family comprises five applications: nanoCAD Plus, Pro, Construction, Mechanica and 3DScan. NanoCAD Plus is an engineering drawing tool with all the necessary basic design tools, direct DWG format support,  IFC Support, along with dynamic data input is available both for creating and editing elements. The Pro application is based on the Plus app, and also provides users with the Autodesk Inventor-style tool for 3D solid modelling as well as 2D constraints. 3DScan is a specialised software application designed to work with 3D scanning data, primarily 3D laser scanning data (lidar). All the functionality of the Plus app is included by default. Using NanoCAD 3DScan, users can analyse and process large amounts of 3D scanning data (point clouds). Features include the ability to import cloud points from popular exchange formats (LAS, BIN, PTS, PTX, PCD, XYZ), data visualisation, registration by marks and manual binding, criteria-based filtering, segmentation, and creating triangulation models, including digital elevation model (DEM). It also allows manual and semi-automatic classification, semi-automatic and manual vectorisation, and calculations using raw data.
