Reality Capture

The new Leica Cyclone 3DR laser enables rapid validation of design and construction
activities through the integration of Leica JetStream technology and BIM model support.

(HEERBRUGG, SWITZERLAND, 13 June 2019) Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, today
announced Leica Cyclone 3DR, the new reality capture software that fuses technology
for centralised, full-scale point cloud management from Leica Cyclone with advanced,
automated point cloud analysis and modeling from 3DReshaper. The new software
delivers a simplified platform for surveying, architecture, engineering and construction
(AEC) and tank inspection applications.

With industry-centric guided workflows, Cyclone 3DR includes a range of adaptable features for
automating cleaning, modelling, meshing, extraction, inspection and reporting. An assortment
of 3D deliverables can be created to meet the unique needs of reality capture professionals
across a wide spectrum of fields. Specialised workflows, such as construction monitoring,
tunnelling surveying and tank inspecting (based on the API 650/653 standard) are also
available. Cyclone 3DR further connects the use of reality capture into multiple industries
through its wide support of data formats, including IFC, STL, OBJ, VRML, DXF, STEP, IGES
and more.

“Leica Cyclone 3DR is a huge step forward. The ability to fuse workflows of Cyclone and
3DReshaper presents a step-change in productivity and allows us to leverage the best of the
two products to drive greater field-to-finish productivity,” said Sander Schrodor, innovations
manager at Ingenieursbureau Coenradie.

The right data at the right time
Based on Leica Jetstream technology that enables the rapid viewing and use of reality capture
data, Cyclone 3DR streamlines the process of providing actionable information directly to
clients. Cyclone 3DR leverages the combined expertise of 3DReshaper and Cyclone to deliver
a revolutionary new solution to simplify data processing, visualisation and delivery of high-
quality meshes, reports and more.

“Our aim is to make the day-to-day working life of our customers easier,” said Faheem Khan,
Leica Geosystems vice president of survey solutions. “We kept this front of mind in developing
Cyclone 3DR. Not only will users, new and old, feel comfortable in the software’s intuitive user
interface but we also specifically created familiar application-orientated workflows tailored for
the industry and application our customers operate in.”
