EdgeWise revolutionizes the process of creating 3D CAD models. Using patent-pending computer vision algorithms, it automatically extracts crisp, clean vectors from a scanned point cloud, creating accurate polygon models within minutes. Complex CAD models can be completed many times faster using this technology.
TerraDat Geomatics can supply UK customers with Edgewise. The workflow is very straightforward, and large time savings in 3D linework deliverables can be achieved following refinement of the automated model in Google Sketchup or AutoCAD.
An additional benefit of Edgewise is that it features a ground extraction tool that effectively removes vegetation, building and other structures with positive relief. This ground model can be exported as a deliverable in its own right as .xyz or TIN.

Please contact us for further details, or send us a sample point cloud to see how effectively linework can be automatically generated
New EdgeWise™ Training Video Available
ClearEdge3D has published a new training video showing best-practice workflows using EdgeWise™ together with SketchUp. The video gives many useful tips and demonstrates how to efficiently model the building shown in Figure 2 from the original point cloud in about 30 minutes.
