August 04, 2011 -- Survey Solutions Scotland, a leading supplier of Trimble and FARO laser scanners, has joined the Pointools Partner Program in the UK. Pointools software streamlines scan-to-model workflows by enabling project teams to reference and reuse the largest point cloud models – the billions of measurement points taken by 3D laser scanners – inside the broadest range of applications.
“This is great news for Survey Solutions’ customers who seek best in class hardware and software from a single source,” said Graham Lochhead, Senior Partner at Survey Solutions Scotland.
Pointools offerings include stand-alone applications, CAD software plug-ins, and a third-party technology platform for point cloud processing and visualisation; uniquely enabling point cloud model reuse across Bentley, Autodesk, Safe Software, Rhino, and SketchUp applications without time-consuming translation.
“We are delighted to welcome Graham and his team to our partner program,” enthused Joe Croser, Vice President of Products at Pointools. “As a dealer for Trimble and FARO 3d laser scanners, Survey Solutions Scotland has very deep industry knowledge and is well placed to service the needs of Pointools users in Scotland.”
The Pointools suite of software is used by architects, engineers, contractors and surveyors to leverage the same high-performance Pointools POD file format across multiple industries and workflows including AEC, Art & Entertainment, Forensics, GIS & Mapping, Heritage, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Mining, Power & Utilities, and Security & Defence.
