SOLIDSCAN converts a laser scan into a solid, photo–realistic representation of the real world.
SOLIDSCAN does not naively “interpolate“ points – instead, SOLIDSCAN uses a new 3D technique to produce solid photo–realistic point clouds with no holes. This is not “meshing“ or photogrammetry – instead, we have invented a completely new method that uses 3D objects with volume called “Atoms“.
There is no upper limit to the detail that can be reproduced using SOLIDSCAN. A 3 Terabyte SOLIDSCAN file can open and stream at the same speed as a 3 Megabyte one.
Incredibly, Euclideon’s SOLIDSCAN removes moving objects and noise from laser scanned data – only static objects remain.
Reflective surfaces like whiteboards and mirrors can now be laser scanned with photo–realistic results.
SOLIDSCAN technology creates many new opportunities for scanning organizations. Traditionally a laser scanner was a tool for measurement – now it becomes a tool for copying the real world.
WITH SOLIDSCAN YOU CAN:
• SOLVE LASER SCANNING PROBLEMS
SOLIDSCAN automatically removes holes and reflection noise in laser scanned data
• OPEN UP NEW MARKETS
The uses and markets for your laser scanner are now 20 times larger with SOLIDSCAN technology
• REMOVE MOVING OBJECTS
People walking past the scanner, cars and LiDAR noise from reflective surfaces automatically removed
• DISPLAY REAL ESTATE
Produce aesthetically pleasing copies of buildings for use by the general public
• IMPROVE DIGITIZATION WORK–FLOW
Solid point cloud data means no more clicking the wrong points by accident during digitization!
• CREATE REALISTIC MODELS
For Historical Preservation or display. Scan Golf courses, race tracks and hotel rooms
• REPLACE “BUBBLE VIEW” PRODUCTS
Leave behind the fundamental limitations of “Bubble” or panoramic image viewing products by looking
at any part of the scan at any time, with complete freedom of movement and measurement in 3D
• STREAM OVER THE INTERNET
Users with Geoverse MDM can easily stream all of the sample solidscan models shown here over
ordinary ADSL Internet connections. No degradation, decimation or “thinning” or “meshing” of the data
is performed. This is only possible due to the efficiency of Euclideon’s Unlimited Detail algorithm.
