Bentley Systems announced the release of Bentley Descartes V8 i (SELECTseries 3), 3D modeling that combines point clouds, raster imagery, and geometry. According to the company, the resulting models expand the utility of point clouds by supporting hybrid design workflows that deliver as-operated 3D models to serve the operations and maintenance needs of owner-operators.
Through its release of Bentley Descartes V8 i (SELECTseries 3), Bentley claims it has launched an information modeling product for advanced point-cloud processing that addresses “virtually all of the 3D image processing needs of infrastructure professionals.” With this product, project teams can take greater advantage of point clouds in engineering workflows for all categories of infrastructure. Moreover, they ll be able to work with any type of point-cloud data, including aerial and terrestrial LiDAR and ground-penetrating radar.
Bentley also plans to release ProjectWise Point-cloud Services, which streams on demand to Bentley applications only the portion of a point cloud being viewed or queried, facilitating the collaborative work sharing and unlocking the value of terabytes of point-cloud data.
