Acute3D, a Bentley Systems company, pleased to announce the release of ContextCapture Editor CONNECT Edition Update 1 , a 3D CAD based on PowerDraft that allows you to leverage reality meshes, terrain models, and point clouds made of billions of points and triangles for use in information modeling workflows.
What's New in ContextCapture Editor CONNECT Edition Update 1:
Attach and display Bentley's new Scalable Mesh format.
The following tools have been enhanced to support this new Reality Mesh format:
- Model by Section
- Ground Extraction
- Drape Element
- Snap Element
ProjectWise ContextShare integration
ProjectWise ContextShare allows you to securely manage, store, and share large amounts of Reality Modeling data.
The ProjectWise ContextShare integration allows to:
- Convert local Reality Mesh to the Reality Mesh 3DTiles format and upload to ProjectWise ContextShare.
- Attach and stream Reality Mesh 3DTiles from ProjectWise ContextShare.
Analyze volume differences in a defined area between two Reality Mesh or a Reality Mesh and design element. The tool returns Cut and Fill volumes and a raster grid that can be displayed using existing thematic display functionalities.
Quick Ground Extraction
Extract terrain from an area of a Reality Mesh to a new Reality Mesh attachment and seamlessly display the result using clips.
Extract and tile terrain from a Reality Mesh to multiple Terrain Model elements or LandXML files.
Convert Reality Mesh
Convert 3MX files to Bentley's new Scalable Mesh format.
Generate Scalable Mesh from terrain data
Generate Scalable Mesh files containing terrain data from sources such as: DTM and TIN files, LandXML, DEM rasters, classified Point Clouds, Scalable Terrain Models and DGN elements.
About ContextCapture. ContextCapture, a new solution developed on the basis of the former Smart3DCapture technology, a software solution allowing to produce high resolution 3D models from simple photographs, without any human intervention. The principle of ContextCapture is to analyze several photographs of a static subject, taken from different viewpoints, and to automatically detect pixels corresponding to a same physical point. From many such correspondences, relative orientations of photos and accurate 3D shape of the scene can be inferred. ContextCapture solves this problem with cutting edge photogrammetry, computer vision and computational geometry algorithms fulfilling industrial-quality requirements in terms of precision, scalability, efficiency, usage, robustness and interoperability.
About Acute3D SAS. Acute3D SAS operates as a technological software company that develops and sells Smart3DCapture software to produce high resolution 3D models from simple photographs. The company offers Smart3DCapture Scanner that automatically reconstructs objects, buildings, and man-made or natural landmarks from imagery datasets; and Smart3DCapture Mapper for larger-scale 3D surveying and mapping. Its Smart3DCapture is used in 3D cartography applications, including geographic portals and topographic databases; architecture, engineering, and construction applications, such as for land and urban surveying and planning, as-built 3D modeling, and construction site monitoring; defense, intelligence, and homeland security applications, including tactical decision-making, mission rehearsal, and training and simulation; and media, entertainment, and e-commerce applications, such as video games and visual effects production, 3D avatars creation, and 3D catalogs. The company’s Smart3DCapture also used in manufacturing applications, including reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, and 3D printing; resources and energy applications, such as mining and quarry operations, pipeline surveying, and oil and gas exploration; cultural heritage applications, including arts and archaeology; and scientific analysis applications, such as geology and forensics. Acute3D SAS was founded in 2011 and is based in Valbonne, France. As of February 10, 2015, Acute3D SAS operates as a subsidiary of Bentley Systems, Incorporated.
