Software provides reverse engineering plug-in for Bricscad.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to work with Professional and Classic versions of Bricscad V8 and V9, Point Cloud for Bricscad enables users to reverse engineer 3D digital models from physical parts and scan data. Program can be used to drape surface along particular direction or wrap mesh around point cloud to create watertight model. While wrapping mesh around point cloud, plug-in treats concave and convex meshes differently, thereby giving user control over final surface mesh.

SYCODE Launches Point Cloud for Bricscad

Panaji, India - 18th Feb, 2009 - SYCODE today launched 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.

Point Cloud for Bricscad is designed to work with the Professional as well as Classic version of Bricscad V8 and V9. Priced at $195 the plug-in is available as a fully functional 10 day/run trial. It comes with an installer and detailed documentation in the form of a compiled HTML help file which contains a step-by-step tutorial to get the end user started in the shortest possible time.
