Germany: DotProduct and Arithimetica have entered into a technical partnership to develop and launch ‘Pointfuse for DP’ – a 3D model creation capability for Dot Product scanner users. With a ‘one button’ approach, Pointfuse for DP converts Dot Product point clouds into 3D models with accurate geometry, and it also enables mesh surfaces in the models to be isolated and manipulated in a CAD software.
Pointfuse for DP scanner will be on display at Booths C2.055 Hall 2.1 and A5.037 Hall 5.1 at INTERGEO in Berlin from 26-28 September 2017.
Pointfuse for DP permits DotProduct users to access powerful 3D engine directly from Dot3D software. It provides a fast, reliable, easy and convenient method for generation of 3D models.
Tom Greaves, Chief Marketing Officer at DotProduct LLC, says “This is an important development for users of our handheld 3D scanners, as it provides a user-friendly, high value solution for getting their point cloud data ready for downstream use”
He goes on to add that “DotProduct users can already import DP scan data directly into many 3D packages. However, Pointfuse for DP enables improved workflows for solid modeling and VR environments.”
Handheld DotProduct scanners give 3D scanning solutions for capturing existing space and facilities. The DPI-8X is an Android-based self-contained handheld 3D scanner that allows users to instantly capture 3D color data. DPI-8X provides complete software and hardware solutions and allows data to be directly exported to the highly compressed DP point cloud format. The DPI-8X SR offers a solution for close proximity scanning. It has a range of 0.3-2 m and provides best results in complex environments.
Mark Senior, Business Development Manager at Arithmetica, says “DotProduct scanners are industry leading handheld scanners. They are easy to use and easy to integrate within existing workflows, in fact, much like Pointfuse!”
Expressing his confidence in the new product he adds “We are confident that the launch of Pointfuse for DP will be well received, not only by existing DotProduct users, but also by the wider scanning community.”
