Alignment Tools

  • Scan Registration
  • Best Fit
  • Target Detection
  • 3D Alignment

Best Fit Clouds
Align clouds together thanks to the Best Fit feature.
Automatic Target Detection
Automatically extract center of surveying targets.

3DReshaper® provides you a various range of tools to align or registrate every kind of data (clouds, polylines, meshes, ...) from particular points or global shapes.

Thanks to these tools, you can face many situations as for example:

  • Align several scans together to consolidate your project.
  • Align your scans on a reference model to do 3D inspection, analysis or reporting.
  • Build a coherent coordinate system to have main axis according to main planar surfaces.
  • Use local coordinate systems to have different coherent coordinate systems for complex cases.
Three main commands to answer a lot of needs.

The command "Best Align N Points" allows you to click couple of points to find the best solution so that each point clicked on the first object matches the corresponding point on the second point. This process can be improved thanks to:

  • an automatic detection of surveying target centers (spherical, circular, with pattern, ...) when you click couples of points.
  • a final best fit on the complete object to use the whole data and not only particular points.
  • different constraints you can define.

The command "Best Fit" analyses overlapping areas to find the best position of each individual object according to the others in order to minimize registration errors, or to automatically align your scans on a reference model.

If you want for example a wall to be normal to the Y axis or the neutral axis of a cylindrical shape along the X axis, just use the command "Align Coordinate System" to orient the coordinate systems according to your needs.
