HAMAMATSU, Japan—Oct. 11, 2016—Elysium and DotProduct LLC are announcing the release of InfiPoints DP. This powerful new Android application will allow DotProduct users to extract planar surfaces and cylinders from their scan data and export them to industry standard solid modeling formats, all on the same tablet used to capture the data. This greatly enhances the effectiveness of the DPI-8 Kit for use in surface-based CAD and BIM design environments, both on and off the tablet. The end-to-end workflow is being demonstrated live at the DotProduct booth (Hall A3, Booth A3.010) all week at INTERGEO in Hamburg, Germany.
Phi.3D 2.1 & InfiPoints DP offer new rapid path from DPI-8 scanning to CAD and BIM
With the latest release of Phi.3D 2.1, all new and updated DPI-8 handheld scanners are ready for direct integration with InfiPoints DP. The new “Send Scene To” function in Phi.3D 2.1 offers several sharing and integration features, including direct export to InfiPoints DP on the tablet.
Within InfiPoints DP, DPI-8 users can extract planes and cylinders from the scanned point cloud data, and export these features directly to IGES and DWG CAD files. This scan to CAD workflow can now come full circle right on the tablet, with the ability to export DPI-8 scanned data into mobile CAD tools such as OnShape or Autodesk Fusion 360. Off the tablet, this workflow is enabling import into mainstream solid modeling programs such as SOLIDWORKS, Creo Parametric, and others.
All new DPI-8 Kits will soon begin shipping with InfiPoints DP pre-installed, giving new DotProduct customers immediate access to InfiPoints DP, including a free 30-day trial. Existing DotProduct customers can also download and install the app from www.dotproduct3d.com.
“While the DPI-8 has proven itself as an excellent tool for reliable point cloud capture, there has always been a gap between point cloud scans and solid modeling and BIM tools. With the addition of InfiPoints DP to the DPI-8, we are one step closer to closing that gap, all on the tablet,” states Tom Greaves, Chief Marketing Officer of DotProduct LLC.
