Leica CloudWorx for AutoCAD is the most efficient and popular plug-in software for using as-built point cloud data – captured by laser scanners – directly within AutoCAD.
Users take advantage of the familiar AutoCAD interface and tools to shorten the learning curve for working with laser scan data. Users can create accurate 2D and 3D as-builts, check proposed designs against existing conditions, perform critical construction & fabrication QA, and more… all directly within AutoCAD.
In the past, users often struggled with point cloud manipulation when using AutoCAD point cloud plug-ins. CloudWorx overcomes this with its powerful TruSpace viewing window. This intuitive, panoramic viewing window lets users “see” better what the point cloud represents, and acts like a super-control to drive point clouds visualization in AutoCAD with unprecedented speed.
Features and Benefits:
Optional Cyclone, JetStream or ReCap data sources
Work in AutoCAD with point clouds from any laser scanner or point cloud-creating 3D sensor
Eliminate the need for time-consuming export/import processes of point cloud file formats
Manipulate and navigate large point cloud data sets faster, including slices, sections, and limit boxes
QuickSlice tool lets users quickly slice and orient the point cloud, aligning to walls and floors
Auto-Fit Polyline tool lets users quickly fit 2D lines and arcs to the point cloud with one, two, or three pick points; combine with QuickSlice for fast, user-friendly 2D linework extraction
Steel, flange, automatic pipe, and 2D line fitters
Catalog fitting for intelligent as-builts
Accurate tie-ins and clash checks
Floor Flatness and Floor Levelness tool with automatic ASTM 1155 standard report generation
Orthoimage tool to create GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG, GIF, and BMP images
Automatic orientation of UCS to point clouds
SmartPicks and Points on Grid tools
TruSpace panoramic viewer with background images for intuitive interaction with and driving of the point cloud in the application’s viewing pane
Saved project environment settings
English, German, Japanese and other languages available
Leica Geosystems' JetStream point cloud engine provides unmatched productivity gains with higher fidelity in final deliverables when working with point clouds in a CAD environment. Through instant loading and uninterrupted rendering of all the points, all the time, there is no more lag and no more "regen". Even with billions of points. The JetStream Experience in CloudWorx for AutoCAD will demonstrate these time-saving and cost-cutting benefits right in your current CloudWorx installation. Users can easily download and run the Experience by following the prompts in the software after clicking the new JetStream Experience button in the menu ribbon.
