Point Cloud Tool for 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design Now Available - It is Alive in the Lab

It looks like Autodesk is finally catching on to the needs of the construction industry. More and more technology based on 3D and buildings. Warning: This is not for the 2D laggards.

A point cloud is a set of vertices in a three-dimensional coordinate system. These vertices are defined by X, Y and Z coordinates. Point clouds are often created by 3D scanners. Using an automatic process, these devices measure in a large number of points on the surface of an object and output a point cloud as a data file. The point cloud represents the set of points that the device has measured.

Our newest technology preview is:

The Point Cloud Tool for 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design allows you to:

  • Import .PTS format point cloud data into 3ds Max or 3ds Max Design scenes.
  • Display the point cloud data in the 3ds Max viewport with a variety of rendering options and levels of detail.
  • Render point clouds using the mental ray rendering option.
  • Slice point clouds into pieces using geometric display volumes.
  • Export multiple clouds or parts of clouds to a new .PTS files.

Please give this a try and let us know what you think at labs.3dsmax.pointcloud@autodesk.com. If you do not have access to the YouTube video for this preview, you can download it here.

Looking forward to seeing beautiful designs that started as scans is alive in the lab.
