A primary goal of Scalypso is to support a wide range of terrestrial 3D laser scanning devices. Thus, as our customer, you can choose the optimal device for each project and still use the same software workflow.

As a first step of each Scalypso project, the Scalypso Converter translates the scan data from a vendor specific into a uniform Scalypso point cloud file format, which is usable by all of our software applications.

  • ASCII Files (*.xyz, *.pts, …)
