About PointCab

With the PointCab software, the processing of high-resolution point clouds is easy as can be.

In next to no time our software evaluates even the most comprehensive point clouds – whether from terrestrial laser scanners, hand-held scanners or drones – and generates detailed 2D plans and sections or comprehensive three-dimensional building or landscape models.

The PointCab software is compatible with all current CAD systems and is therefore used in many areas such as architecture, building industry, geodesy, civil engineering, monument protection and facility management.

PointCab for Architecture and planning

As BIM gets more important by the day in the architecture and planning community, so does point cloud processing. If existing buildings need to be transferred into a BIM model or the process of construction needs to be documented properly, laser scanning is almost inevitable. Therefore, more and more architects and planners come across point cloud data from laser scanning and face the challenge of transferring it into Layouts, 2D-, 3D-Plans or even whole BIM models.
Since most CAD and BIM software is not designed to deal with point clouds (especially bigger ones), working with them is often laborious and exhausting. It takes ages to import the data. If you're lucky and the program doesn't crash during hours of importing, the next obstacle is right around the corner. Navigating through a point cloud is hard. The human brain and perception isn't wired to this type of view. Just defining the points, surfaces and distances you need for your model takes a lot of time and effort.
Not with PointCab! Instead of the pointcloud view, PointCab automatically provides you with orthophotos (top- side- and front views) in 2,5D, a view that's intuitive for the human brain to work with and no CAD software provides. Thanks to the vectorizer tool, it creates the layout for you in a matter of seconds, you only need to adjust it.
That's minutes and hours of time you save right there, but there's more! Thanks to the unique PointCab algorithms, importing point clouds into PointCab is as fast as can be. It doesn't matter how big the pointcloud data or which format, PointCab processes them all, faster than most other software solutions on the market.

As soon as you get your 2D-, or 3D-plans ready in PointCab, you can easily send them to your clients via the PointCab WebExport. Of course, you can also continue to work on the plan in your CAD software. It doesn't matter which CAD you use, PointCab is compatible with all prevalent CAD solutions.
The best part? With the orthophoto approach, PointCab is able to reduce the point cloud data size drastically, without losing any information. That means importing data from PointCab into CAD is a piece of cake. Instead of hours of waiting time and a difficult view, you'll get the data you need, fast and easy to work on.
While this is by far one of the easiest workflows from point cloud to CAD or BIM, Revit users are in for a special treat. Thanks to the PointCab 4Revit plugin, Revit users can transfer layouts, sections, walls, windows and much more directly from PointCab to Revit without the need to ex- and import the data first. This means a real time transfer of data and again, a lot of time saving.
The 4Revit plugin but also PointCab in general is a great tool for starters. Of course, even if you're already an expert in point cloud processing, PointCab undeniably saves you a lot of time. Designed by laser scanning experts and surveyors, it also provides a lot of pro features for sophisticated needs. Nevertheless, it's so intuitive and easy to use, that even raw recruits are able to work with point clouds in no time.

KEY SELLING POINTS:

  • Easy to use tool for starters
  • Orthophotos provide an intuitive workflow and easy navigation
  • Extremely time saving
  • Fast import of all prevalent point cloud data (compatible with all scanners and even drone data)
  • Compatible with all prevalent CAD and BIM software
  • Processes even large point clouds easily
  • Able to merge point cloud data from different points of time and different scanners into one project (very useful to document construction progress)
  • One software for all needs: most scanners also provide point cloud processing software. In most cases, they are more expensive than
  • PointCab, won't process all pointcloud data formats and offer way less functions. Since PointCab can even register your scans (also in a very fast and easy fashion), it's the Swiss Army Knife of pointcloud processing.
