Can I generate a CAD model from my 3D point cloud?

This is a question we get occasionally, even though generating CAD models is not the principal function or focus of Novacam 3D metrology systems. Novacam systems provide automated non-contact high-precision measurements for industrial applications. To measure, you don’t need a CAD.

The short answer is yes… though not directly. You’ll need to follow a step or two beyond the software supplied with our systems. But we can get you started in this article.

What kind of measurement data do Novacam 3D metrology systems generate?

From each scan, 3 types of data are generated by Novacam non-contact 3D metrology systems. Learn what they are and how they each bring value to our clients’ inspection applications.
