Autodesk announced its Autodesk ReCap solution, which allows users to create intelligent 3D models from laser scans and captured photos. Rather than beginning with a blank sheet, Autodesk ReCap enables any designer, architect or engineer to add, modify, validate and document their design process in context from existing environments, the company says.
According to the company, users can cut project time in half with ReCap Pro by eliminating the need for registration targets. Users can accurately and reliably register scans by snapping them together using visible features that overlap. Targets are still supported but not required. ReCap Pro also "makes it easy to clean, organize and visualize massive point cloud datasets directly on the desktop," according to the Autodesk website.
Autodesk ReCap Photo allows users to create high-resolution textured 3D models from photos, which is available as a photo-to-3D service via Autodesk 360.
