From photo to 3D Point Cloud

3D point clouds have conquered the digital world in the past years. There are many different ways to create a 3D view of an object. The ELCOVISION 10 software from PMS AG generates 3D models and point clouds fully automatically from photos taken by a normal camera or with a drone. The high-precision and highly detailed 3D models have an almost laser scan quality.

Direct processing of 3D point clouds: Point clouds as a design basis for renovations or work on existing buildings. Any sections of the 3D-project are created in the program at the press of a button and all relevant quantity survey points are determined quickly and easily. Here, SEMA sets a new standard in the processing of digital 3D data and its further processing in CAD software.

The advantages of point clouds, namely the minimal errors of measurement, real measuring of all deformations of the building area calculation and distance measurements, creation of as-built plans, visualisation of objects and their virtual walk-through, can be used ideally for planning and construction. The use of point clouds in the SEMA program simplifies the work enormously and results in extremely high levels of security for inventory planning.
