Hong Kong: Topcon Beijing (HK) Ltd., provider of 3D laser scanning technology, has joined the Pointools Partner Program in Asia. Pointools software is used by project teams to reference and reuse the largest point cloud models – the billions of measurement points taken by 3D laser scanners – inside the broadest range of applications for streamlining scan-to-model workflows.
Nelson Ho, General Manager, Topcon Beijing (HK) Ltd., said, “Pointools software offerings perfectly complement our 3D scanning solutions to enable first rate scan data reuse across the broadest range of software apps.”
Pointools offerings include stand-alone applications, CAD software plug-ins, and a third-party development platform for point cloud processing and visualisation; enabling point cloud model reuse across Bentley, Autodesk, Safe Software, Rhino and SketchUp applications without time-consuming translation.
“This new partnership builds upon our existing relationships with Topcon in other parts of the world,” enthused Joe Croser, VP of Products at Pointools.
The Pointools suite of software is used by architects, engineers, contractors and surveyors to leverage the same high-performance Pointools POD model file format across multiple workflows including AEC, Art & Entertainment, Forensics, GIS & Mapping, Heritage, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Mining, Power & Utilities, and Security & Defence.
