Quantapoint PRISM 3D / QuantaCAD 9.0 Laser Scan Data Software Released

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 22, 2009 -- Quantapoint ( http://www.quantapoint.com) -- provider of laser scanning technology and services that helps companies achieve Zero-Defect Projects™ -- today announced the release of PRISM 3D / QuantaCAD 9.0. PRISM 3D enables 3D laser scan data to be accessed directly as high-definition Quantapoint Laser Models™ (not fuzzy "point clouds") and photo-realistic Laser Images™. QuantaCAD enables the same 3D laser data to be accessed directly within design software such as Autodesk AutoCAD, AVEVA PDMS, AVEVA Review, Bentley AutoPlant, Bentley Microstation V8XM, Intergraph PDS, Intergraph SmartPlant Review and more.

The themes for the PRISM 3D / QuantaCAD 9.0 releases are "increasing design efficiency" and "improving design and laser data interoperability." Some of the major capabilities include:

-- SmartPlant 3D, SmartMarine 3D and SmartPlant Review: Laser Models may be accessed directly in the upcoming SmartPlant release, providing clear information for clash-free designs.

-- Increased Version and Plug-in Support: Support for AutoCAD 2009, SmartPlant Review 2008, PDS Frameworks, AutoPlant Structural and CADWorx, which increases interoperability and the flexibility of using Laser Models during design.

-- Export Laser Models: Laser Models may be exported as "Optimized Point Clouds" (more dense and visually clear than fuzzy "point clouds") in formats compatible with NavisWorks and more.

-- State Manager: Store and recall the laser data state (loaded Laser Models, Laser Images and views) so users can quickly resume work instead of having to manually reload laser scan data.

-- Tag Points: Create and edit tag points (specific 3D locations, such as tie points) directly in the laser data so users can access consistent design starting and ending points across the team.

-- Grouped Clashes: Grouping drastically reduces the number of clashes between Laser Models and CAD Models, eliminating false clashes and helping to more quickly identify critical clashes.

-- Memory Optimization: Significantly optimized memory management so more Laser Models and Laser images may be accessed during design, providing a more complete facility view.

-- Embedded Laser Images: Use photo-realistic Laser Images directly in review packages such as AVEVA Review and SmartPlant review for design reviews.

-- Improved AutoCAD 2D Drawing Support: Support for AutoCAD 2D drawing elements (dimensions, etc.), so fabrication or other drawings can be created from Laser Models.

-- SolidEdge File Import: Siemens SolidEdge files may be imported into PRISM 3D to display with and clash against Laser Models, enabling SolidEdge to be used with laser data for design.

-- View Manager: Manage the camera view of the Laser Models, including parallel (orthogonal) vs. perspective views for a virtual walk-through.

-- Enhanced Installation: Unified installer for standalone and network PRISM 3D / QuantaCAD with support for "silent" and "push" install/uninstall, enabling easier installation and upgrades.

-- Flexible Licensing: Quantapoint software are now integrated and may be licensed monthly for standalone or network usage, providing more flexibility based on project or program needs.

By using PRISM 3D / QuantaCAD to put reality on the desktop and in design software, clients have typically been able to reduce remodeling time by 85% (by using Laser Models instead of CAD remodeling or as a basis to remodel), decrease design time by 60% (by accessing more complete and clear Laser Models and Laser Images for design) and cut rework from design clashes by 85% (by correcting clashes between the Laser Models and the new CAD design)
