See IMAGINiT's Scan to BIM 2015 Auto-Pipe Finder in action in this short video.
IMAGINiT was using the original version of the cylinder recognition tool in its Scan to BIM software. This tool could only recognize a single cylinder at a time and had very low performance on large point cloud data. This did not allow the tool to be widely used and made the reconstruction of models from 3D scans of plants containing a lot of cylinders, such as petrochemical plants and refineries, especially difficult. Automated methods for the detection and fitting of cylinders in point cloud data are essential for 3D reconstruction of these sites. The current cylinder recognition tool did not perform as well as their competition and IMAGINiT wanted to provide their customers with a tool that would outperform in both accuracy and speed.
Rand Worldwide, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division released an updated version of its Scan to BIM software.
"AMC Bridge was recommended to us as an expert SOLIDWORKS API development resource, which they confirmed at the very beginning of the project. In addition to being a highly skilled software development professionals, AMC Bridge’s software engineers demonstrated an inquisitive and critical look at the problem at hands by discovering and offering us some enhanced capabilities of the tools that we ask them to build for us. We’ve been very happy with the results and we are looking forward to continue our cooperation."
