Autodesk ReCap family updated

Autodesk's point cloud processing software - Autodesk ReCap, ReCap Pro and ReCap 360 was updated to new versions. The latest Windows version is You can update to the latest version via the Application Manager or by downloading and installing the "trial" version of ReCap Pro 2015. The "Pro" functionality (e.g. targetless scan-to-scan registration, survey points) reverts automatically to the standard version after your trial period or Pro license expires. The standard version of ReCap is a free application. ReCap is available in 14 languages (switchable inside the application).

Autodesk ReCap is a popular and easy to use tool allowing to effectively process very large point clouds (billions of points) from laser scanning (LiDAR) in all major point cloud formats. Indexed point clouds can be then directly read into AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Inventor, Navisworks or 3ds Max or published through the ReCap 360 cloud service on the internet.

Some of the new functions in version 1.4:
  • Create accuracy reports based on checkerboard or sphere targets (for problem detection and quality-information)
  • Target-based registration refinement (improves the registration of low feature environments, automatically extracts target center points)
  • Registration rollback (deleting scans without the need to re-register)
