  • Automated tools for registration and point cloud cleanup
  • Work efficiently with tools and workflows made specifically for point cloud processing
  • Be ready for any project with one of the industry’s largest selection of point cloud processing tools which include registrationsurface creation, surface to surface comparison and modeling.

Base – provides an impressive set of tools for basic point cloud registration, navigation and viewing. Includes surface creation and editing, volume calculation, and orthophoto generation.

Advanced – be ready for any project with this extensive set of point cloud processing and analysis tools. Includes automatic registration for both target based and target-less projects, automated object classification, advanced drawing tools, a complete set of surface to surface and 3D inspection tools, as well as the ability to publish projects for easy sharing. Includes all tools available in Trimble RealWorks Base Edition.

Advanced Modeler – add models to your point cloud deliverables with fitting, extraction, and editing of common shapes.  This edition also provides specialty tools for modeling plant specific object including safety rails, cages steel beams and stairs. Includes all tools available in Trimble RealWorks Advanced Edition.

Advanced Tank – highly automated tools dedicated to storage tank inspection and calibration make creating reports from scanning data easy even for non-scanning professionals. Includes all tools available in Trimble RealWorks Advanced Modeler Edition. Learn more
