Leica CloudWorx 3.3 for AutoCAD lets you visualize and work efficiently with 3D point cloud data created by 3D laser scanning systems such as High-Definition Surveying (HDS) directly within AutoCAD. A similar version is planned to support Bentley MicroStation applications and users.
Features include a clash detection manager, a flange point selection tool, and enhanced point cloud density display control.
The clash management function lets you find clashes between existing “as-built” conditions and new piping, equipment and structural designs inside a Plant CAD application. It has the look and feel of familiar plant CAD model clashing features. Moreover, you can also manage the clashes better over time.
The flange point selection tool enables precise definition of critical “tie-in” points. A “point density display control” capability speeds office productivity, particularly when working with large and dense point cloud data sets often associated with plant as-builts. Such data sets could otherwise take a long time to display on screen.
