Houston, Texas, April 15, 2012 - The latest member of kubit’s PointSense family, PointSense Heritage, provides tools for creating typical deliverables in historic preservation and archeology. Heritage combines classic kubit PointCloud tools with functionality from PhoToPlan, kubit’s well established photogrammetry software. This combination of photogrammetry and laser scanning allows for high resolution and high accuracy in one package. Interesting features include creation of true orthoimages and the unwrapping/projection of cylindrical objects in images or point clouds (towers, vaults, façades, roofs etc.) for the creation of image plans on historic buildings, ceiling paintings etc. The additional ability to combine images with clouds during the drawing process aids in generating 2D or 3D deliverables.

The next generation of PointSense Plant includes a number of new tools for automating the modeling process, including automated extraction for structural steel. Two mouse clicks will fit a beam, which is a vast improvement from previous manual methods. Structural steel recognition helps to further complete the design needs for users that already enjoy pattern recognition for pipes and inline fittings. Users can also create custom 2D profiles which the software will recognize in the scan and expand into a 3D object.

The new release also integrates directly with AutoCAD Plant 3D objects. This cuts down on the overall process of converting point clouds to intelligent plant objects; streamlining the workflow from point cloud to deliverable formats (isometrics, orthographics, etc).

Additional features include a number of improvements to "Walk the Run" for speeding up the pattern recognition of pipes and inline fittings as well as support for sloped piping detection and modeling.

kubit’s newest version of PointCloud and PointCloud Pro software for AutoCAD, kubit PointCloud 8, includes edge and plane detection enhancements, new cloud section management options , easier deviation analysis with new reporting tools and new imports for Leica, Z&F, Topcon and the E57 format.

All new releases will be compatible with AutoCAD 2013 and will be available in May. For more information, visit
