Stipple: What is it, and what can we do with it?

Updated: May 18, 2022

At LS GROUP (ex Light & Shadows), we developed a new Point Clouds editing tool: Stipple.

It is for the one who knows what it is to deal with point clouds and novices that want to try it!

What is a point cloud?

A point cloud is a set of data points in a three-dimensional coordinate system. These points are usually defined by x, y and z coordinates and capture the shape of an object or building.

This type of file is mainly used in the industry and in particular for the scanning of industrial installations, analyses, controls, measurements and for many other uses.

What is Stipple?

With Stipple you can import, edit, and visualize extra-large point clouds - nearly an unlimited number of points.

Stipple allows you to interact with your point clouds - cut it to keep the part you need or just isolate this part - like a robot in a production line and put it in another place.

Simple as that (Stipple as that).

Different point cloud formats are supported in Stipple like e57, ptx and pts, and some more. It is also possible to import CAD models to make a comparison between a mesh and your point cloud file.

For example, you can take the plan of a building before its construction and the scan of the building finished. You can compare the two files to see if everything was built correctly or if huge changes are necessary that may endanger human lives.
