nanoCAD 3DScan

What's new nanoCAD 3DScan 2.0

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.


Features :


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

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.
