Point Cloud Data Processing
The resulting point cloud was delivered in PTS format and read into Autodesk’s ReCap (Reality Capture) software.
ReCap offers a wide range of functions for filtering, buffering and selective display of point cloud data, enabling the user to make sense of the vast number of points within the cloud and greatly easing the task of feature line extraction from which the 3D model is created.
After enabling the creation of a ‘virtual scaffold’ from the point cloud data, creation of the 3D model itself was undertaken in Autodesk Revit software. With accuracy paramount, particular attention was given to the profile and precise extent of the window frames. Revit families were created for each different window type, being developed from the manufacturers details provided and placed with the 3D Revit model.
