Laser, point cloud scanning has become the preferred method capturing measurements and volumes for renovations, remodels, equipment replacement and even post-disaster evaluation. InfiPoints is here to enhance point cloud utilization.
Easier Utilization of Point Cloud Data
Reducing Time for Data Preparation
- Dramatically reduce time and labor to prepare data for utilization by easily registering multiple scans from a laser scanner and performing powerful noise reduction.
Smoothly Work in a Large Scale Environment
- Billions of points will not stop you from smoothly handling your point clouds.
- Dramatically reduce time and labor of modeling by using plane/cylinder automatic extraction and tools.
One Stop Solution
To accomplish what InfiPoints™ does, you need to have multiple programs to assist with each step. InfiPoints™ combines all of these steps into one, easy-to-use platform. Not only does the InfiPoints™ platform streamline the point cloud processing operation, it also guarantees that the data will work together from data import to data export. InfiPoints™ eliminates the worries of interoperability from point cloud to BIM and CAD.
InfiPoints offers useful functions to easily and quickly pre-process point cloud data from 3D laser scanning—registers multiple shots automatically, removes all kinds of noise automatically and more.
No markers required
Quickly and accurately register multiple point cloud data. Guarantees high accuracy by registering and aligning data using markers, survey information, and planes extracted from point clouds.
Clearing Out the Noise… Automatically
InfiPoints automatically recognizes and removes unwanted noise produced upon overlaying several 3D scans. Moving objects, such as people or cars, are automatically eliminated from the environment.
Point to Features, fast & automatic
InfiPoints™ recognizes walls, floors, and pipes as features (planes and cylinders) in point cloud data. This enables accurate measurements specifying the exact points on object surfaces, which compares to the measurements conducted on B-rep models.
Point Cloud Optimizing
Easier use without loss of quality
InfiPoints™ reduces the data size by decreasing point density using specified intervals between points. This reduces the weight of the point cloud data without sacrificing the accuracy or visual appearance.
InfiPoints™ provides functions to conduct a variety of analysis utilizing point cloud data and CAD data—plan carries in/out routes of equipment, compare concept plans versus post construction state, and more.
Measure from Extracted Planes & Pipes
InfiPoints™ measures the distance between any two points as well as distances and angles between extracted planes and cylinders. This functionality allows users to measure accurately and efficiently while surveying the data.
InfiPoints detects collisions between CAD data and point cloud data. Real-time collision detection can be quickly observed while manipulating imported CAD models within the point cloud. InfiPoints also offers the functionality to check collisions by moving CAD models along the user-defined path.
Point Cloud/ CAD Validation
Comparing Point Cloud to CAD
InfiPoints™ detects the differences between the actual scanned data and CAD data from a design concept. This is ideal to compare the planned construction against the actual environment after construction, allowing the ability to track changes over time.
InfiPoints generates 3D CAD models automatically from point clouds. This dramatically streamlines the process to plan and prepare for the actual operations—saves the time and work to obtain CAD data of existing structures and replaces on-site measurements with 3D measurements on a computer. Moreover, you can export created CAD models including parametric information such as length and diameters, which can be further edited in BIM solutions.
InfiPoints™ generates meshes for structures in scanned data automatically from point cloud data, and exports mesh data in STL, VRML, and OBJ formats. The exported data can be referenced within various CAD systems to quickly generate B-reps for equipment or other uses.
Modeling Piping Systems
InfiPoints™ creates 3D models of pipes out of point cloud data. It automatically extracts the shape of pipes, elbows, flanges, and reducers instantly, and can replace them with standard parts. It also automatically complements the area with low-density points, for example, when there are blind spots in scanning. Users can also add piping elements manually. Extracted and modeled piping systems can be exported to various CAD formats or isometric drawings.
You can easily create CAD models of steel structural elements using planes auto-detected in point cloud data. Standard specifications including H-beam, square pipe and T-beam are pre-registered to InfiPoints™ so that all you have to do is select a type, and adjust the size by an easy mouse operation.
Modeling Steel Structures
InfiPoints™ offers capabilities to create sophisticated outputs — export results from the planning stage in high-resolution 2D images, video etc. This facilitates the smooth communication among project members.
3D InfiPoints Viewer App
InfiPoints™ Viewer Designed to Share
InfiPoints can export self-contained visualization files which can be distributed to other divisions or companies. The receiver can perform measurement analysis or create sections on the 3D data without installing InfiPoints, making collaboration easy and efficient.
Explore your Data with a Flythrough Video
Users can create high-quality fly-through videos from point cloud data with ease, regardless of data size. Video productions can capture the CAD and point cloud data simultaneously displayed to effectively demonstrate anticipated results. The accuracy of construction plans and cost estimation are significantly improved as project members can collaborate virtually from any location.
Export Ortho Images
Exporting Orthogonal View Images
InfiPoints can export high-resolution images utilizing a specified scale.Users can include grid lines of a preferred width and specify image size (height/width) by a number of pixels when exporting an image.Exported drawing data can be used in various ways, such as printing out for physical measurement or importing the data into another tool to create drawings by tracing.
