Panaji, India – SYCODE launches Point Cloud for Bricscad, a reverse engineering plug-in for Bricscad.
“Although it does have significant 3D capabilities, Bricscad is mainly used as a 2D drafting system”, explains Deelip Menezes, Founder and CEO of SYCODE. “Point Cloud for Bricscad will go a long way to increase the 3D capabilities of Bricscad even further and help put it to good use in other areas as well. This powerful plug-in gives Bricscad users the power to reverse engineer 3D digital models from physical parts and scan data.”
Using a digitizer or a 3D scanner a Bricscad user can scan a physical part and record points on its surface to arrive at a point cloud. Thereafter, Point Cloud for Bricscad can be used to drape a surface along a particular direction or wrap a mesh all around the point cloud to create a watertight model. While wrapping a mesh around a point cloud, the plug-in treats concave and convex meshes differently, thereby giving the user a higher degree of control over the final surface mesh. This plug-in allows Bricscad to be employed in a manner way different than what it was originally designed for.
