Arithmetica is making 3D model project collaboration easier by taking advantage of Sketchfab, the online platform for sharing 3D files. By automatically converting very large point clouds into manageable 3D models, at a fraction of the size, and uploading its Pointfuse Pro generated textured 3D models to Sketchfab, Arithmetica can share content and help users visualise their projects in true 3D.
So far, Arithmetica has shared a number of visually stunning 3D models created from the millions of individual measurements recorded by laser scanners. These models include the interior of a Byzantine Church, a detailed model of a turbine and a city centre hotel – converted using Pointfuse Pro from a 700 million point dataset recorded by Belgian based RealVisuals.
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.
