nanoCAD 3DScan

nanoCAD 3DScan is a specified application designed to work with 3D scanning data, primarily 3D laser scanning data (LIDAR), created on the nanoCAD CAD platform.


Application Areas

nanoCAD 3DScan is focused on solving engineering and information tasks using 3D scanning data in the following application areas:

  • Construction and operation of buildings engineering structures and networks, including search for collisions and author supervision
  • Creation of 2.5D drawings and plans, including topographic;
  • Machines and apparatus design;
  • Creation of three-dimensional simulation models;
  • Data entry into the GIS system database;
  • Emergency situations and ecological monitoring;
  • Transportation tasks modeling;
  • Execution of operational calculations, measurements, including tools for virtual surveying.
  • Data sources

    The sources of primary data for nanoCAD 3DScan are:

  • Three-dimensional laser scanning (LIDAR) data
  • Various photogrammetric software and hardware systems for obtaining three-dimensional data;
  • Bathymetric surveying and other remote or contact methods providing three-dimensional point clouds as a result of the operation.
  • 3DScan Functionality

    nanoCAD 3DScan provides the following functionality:

  • Import of cloud points from popular exchange formats (LAS, BIN, PTS, PTX, PCD, XYZ);
  • Preprocessing: filtration based on different criteria;
  • Registration marks import from external sources;
  • Registration by marks and manual binding;
  • Quality control of point cloud registration;
  • Optimized data storage with meta-information (points classification, measurement parameters, scanned color), implemented with stochastic spatial trees technology;
  • A wide range of visualization methods and the possibility of photorealistic mapping, variety display with multiple viewports support;
  • Construction of cross-sections, assigning of view areas, support for dynamic sections;
  • Integration of point clouds into the nanoCAD drawing environment;
  • Semi-automatic and manual data filtering;
  • Manual and semi-automatic classification tools;
  • Automatic identification of ground surface data;
  • Creation of triangulation models, including digital elevation model (DEM);
  • Semi-automatic and manual vectorization;
  • Measurements of lengths and areas;
  • Direct volumes calculation on point clouds data and project surfaces.
