Shepperton Studios, November 10, 2015 — Visitors to Capturing Reality – the new event for laser scanning, LiDAR and 3D data capture and modelling – will be able to get hands on with the latest rapid point cloud processing software, Pointfuse. Arithmetica, the company behind Pointfuse, will be presenting a workshop session at the inaugural event and will also have a stand at the Capturing Reality Exhibition, which takes place in Salzburg, Austria from the 23-25 November 2016.
Capturing Reality incorporates the best of two highly successful trade events – SPAR Europe and ELMF (European LiDAR Mapping Forum). Focused on the technologies of laser scanning, LiDAR and 3D data capture and modelling, Capturing Reality includes an innovative conference featuring industry experts who will present the latest concepts and advances in capturing reality, and an international exhibition.

The Arithmetica workshop session is titled ‘Current and future developments in automating the scan to model workflow’ and will take place at 12h00 on Wednesday 25 November. Featuring a new version of the point cloud engine which powers Pointfuse, it will enable the audience to experience the production of easy to use 3D models from billions of individual laser scan measurements in a matter of minutes.
Visitors to Capturing Reality will also get a sneak preview of Pointfuse Version 2. Featuring enhanced processing algorithms, Version 2 – due for general release in January 2016 – revolutionises the way the point cloud software reproduces complex geometry such as curves and pipework.
Pointfuse is a powerful modelling engine developed by Arithmetica, a hi-tech company based at Shepperton Studios. Pointfuse gives professionals an astonishingly fast, precise and flexible way of converting the vast point cloud datasets generated by laser scanners or photogrammetry into high fidelity vector models. Designed for engineers, architects and construction professionals, Pointfuse uses advanced statistical techniques to create vector models which can then be manipulated using any industry-standard CAD system.
