point cloud software



If anyone is interested in making a surface out of their point clouds, I've come across a really easy to use freeware called Point2Poly from Paraform.
We are using Raindrop Geomagic Studio, which has tools for making untrimmed surfaces out of point cloud. It means that you do not need to join them in Pro/E, because edges fit to each other perfectly. There are no gaps no matter what is the complexity of the model.

I am attaching an example.

The same technology is in Pro/E Restyle, but has no automatic surface creation.
