Autodesk (Booth 431)
Autodesk is excited to be at SPAR talking about Reality Computing and Autodesk ReCap. Reality Computing is a new and emerging concept that unifies the digital and physical worlds, bringing together products and technologies to digitally capture existing conditions, manipulate and analyze captured data, and realize results back in our physical world. As a part of Reality Computing, the Autodesk ReCap product line provides solutions that enable customers to capture and integrate reality directly into their design process. With ReCap, point clouds and image-based 3D models can be used seamlessly within Autodesk design and creation suites. Customers can start their design with accurate dimensions and full photo-quality context rather than a blank screen. Reality Computing and ReCap are changing how we think about and work with captured 3D data its not enough to visualize point clouds, its about better design efficiency, confidence during construction and trust in understanding the physical world without physically being there.

Elysium (Booth 613)
Elysium, a developer of quality interoperability solutions for digital design and PLM markets, will exhibit at SPAR International at Booth 613. Infipoints is one of few applications which can handle billions of point clouds with high performance. This is a total solution system which covers the entire process of the projects: from preprocessing the data from 3D scanning, for example, registering shots and removing noises, to utilizing the obtained data, for example, measuring and checking interferences against imported CAD data, exporting 2D drawings and more. One of the biggest appealing points of InfiPoints is the interoperabilityimporting 2D drawings or 3D CAD models and exporting created 2D drawings or extracted pipes, in multiple formats. Recent enhancements include: exporting visualization files which allows non-InfiPoints users to view and edit point cloud data and exporting orthogonal images. The future enhancements are modeling pipes, creating movies and embedding hyperlinks to external data as 3D notes in point cloud data. InfiPoints accelerates the utilization of point cloud data.
