CloudWorx lets users directly create “slices.”

Cyra Technologies, Inc. announced the release of Cyclone CloudWorx 1.0, which lets professionals access full 3D point cloud data sets directly with their AutoCAD or MicroStation interface to create accurate, complete as-built drawings. With CloudWorx, the user simply accesses the point cloud database and then runs X, Y or Z planar cuts through the dense point clouds. The result is an accurate visualization of plan and section views of the as-built scene. Sliced sections/elevations are easily converted to proper 2D drawings using AutoCAD or MicroStation drafting commands and tools. CloudWorx also lets users directly: Create “slices” (i.e., cuts with finite thickness) through point clouds; Query points for X,Y,Z coordinates and hide sections of point clouds that are not of immediate interest.
