Point Cloud solution

[ Edited ]

Hi All


I receive question relate to manipulate and convert point cloud inside Solid Edge

Anyone can shade light on this?


Mark any good parnert I can refer? Aby sign of integration?

One technology partner you can look at is Reverse Engineering.  Here is their URL:

Just for info


I happend to get a quick demo of Trimble


They show us a section of a manufacture with lost of pipes, isolate the points of a spcific pipes, and turn it into a solid in a snap.


They export.


I open in Solid Edge and using synch, i was able to reroute the tube, change the size in less then a couple of minutes ( 5)

Sounds like an interesting solution Luc.  They specifically for the process plant industry?


Production: ST9 MP7
Testing: ST10

Re: Point Cloud solution

No really any industry,


But i suspect process plant industry is their main customer as you can scan a whole plant probably in 1/1 000 000 the time it would take to just plan the design :-)


They have multiple solution for all size job


If i remember correctly, they scan offices and manufacture to rework the layout


They also use this for retrofit job. Example old aluminium plant that need to update their technology.


One technology I would like to see live in action is one where you take picture from three or more angle and create a solid out of it. Probably less precice but faster in many situation

I've used Rhino to convert point clouds into surfaces and then bring into edge to make solids, works not bad but does cost a bit too.  Rhino has a few tools specifically to create surfaces from point clouds.
