Autodesk ReCap Pro is a point cloud software which allows you to capture reality and then bring it into the digital world. With this software you can cut your project time in half because all you have to do is capture the photos and then the cloud does the rest of the work for you.
Don't worry about data accuracy being compromised either because the photos being stitched together creates a real representation of what the model is like in real life.
With ReCap Pro all you have to do is snap some photos and then the cloud takes these images and turns it into a 3D model. Of course there are certain ways in which you should take your photos in order for your design to be the best it can be. But no matter what you are wishing to create, be it a person, a fixed object, building or interior space it is all possible with any standard digital camera.
A few quick tips are: avoid shooting surrounding objects when photographing a fixed object, transparent and shiny objects are almost impossible to stitch together, take an image of every angle of your object including the top. For Buildings use a wide angle lens camera on a DSLR or overlap your photos by 50 degrees. To find out more watch Autodesk's tutorial on taking photos.
So what are some of the key features?
• Supports file formats that are text based and 3D laser scan data
• Creates panoramic designs that are high quality and photo realistic
• Survey points, point clouds and laser scan alignment
• Road and bridge visualisation
• Detect equipment clashes with point clouds
• Accurate and detailed designs for renovation and facility layout
You can buy ReCap Pro via a quarterly or annual desktop subscription term plan – follow the link for more details. Alternatively, if you wanted you could simply have the Autodesk Recap version which is solely desktop based.
This contains a number of features all for free but if you wanted to have the added capability of being able to do scan to scan registration or survey control regulation then you'd have to purchase the pro features.
I could tell you way more on Autodesk Recap but this blog would be more like a short story. If you click on the links attached you will be taken to Autodesk sites which are extremely informative and helpful.
