Autdesk Releases a New Version of ReCap Pro
Autodesk has just updated Autodesk ReCap Pro, part of the ReCap product line that enables customers to capture and integrate reality data directly into their design process. The newly available ReCap Pro 1.4 makes it easier to check the quality of laser scans that you are feeding into the ReCap engine and turn the scans into 3D data models.
ReCap Pro 1.4:
- Creates improved accuracy reports based on commonly-used registration targets (checkerboards and spheres).
- Improves point cloud registration accuracy in low-feature environments.
- Provides tools to more easily analyze, detect, and fix problematic laser scans and registrations.
“Autodesk is always looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to start 3D modeling based on reality, instead of a blank page,” said Robert Shear, senior director, Reality Solutions at Autodesk. “The latest release of ReCap Pro makes it easier for users to digitally document the physical world.”
ReCap Pro and Reality Computing
What is Reality Computing and what does it have to do with ReCap Pro 1.4? Reality Computing is a concept that integrates the digital and physical worlds. In Reality Computing, many different technologies are brought together in order to Capture, Compute, and Create 3D data and objects.
Reality Computing technology – including the ReCap product line – allows users to digitally capture the existing conditions of objects and locations (laser scanning, photogrammetry, depth cameras), compute and analyze that captured data in design software, and then deliver the result back either physically (3D printing, digital manipulation) or visually (augmented reality, projection techniques).
