Autodesk ReCap

Reality capture and 3D scanning software

Capture and integrate reality data directly into your design process with ReCap™ reality capture software and services. ReCap works with Autodesk design and creation suites, so you can start your design with accurate 3D data and full photo-quality context rather than a blank screen.

Autodesk ReCap Features

Target-based accuracy reports
You can now create accuracy reports based on targets such as checkerboards or spheres. ReCap Pro software automatically locates the center point of these targets. Targets can also be used to refine registrations in low-feature environments, such as outdoors.

Hardware-independent 3D laser scanning
ReCap Pro software supports text-based formats, as well as formats from all major 3D laser scanner manufacturers.

Photorealistic data visualization
ReCap Pro software supports massive data sets with photorealistic visual fidelity. This enables you to view full 3D or panoramic scans through the software's powerful visualization engine.

Point cloud editing and cleaning
Use simple editing and selection tools and regioning features to clean and organize point cloud data.

Laser scan data alignment
Reduce data processing time by aligning laser scans to create a single model of as-built conditions or an existing environment.

Survey point addition to point clouds
Add survey points to point clouds to improve accuracy in a quality assessment, or to map points to a known grid in existing conditions.

Detailed 3D design in context
Use ReCap Pro software in building workflows with AutoCAD software. Create detailed 3D design in context of as-built conditions or an existing environment.

More precise building renovation
Use point cloud data of scanned as-built conditions in Revit software for faster, more accurate 3D renovation design in building workflows.

Construction verification
Compare as-built scan data from ReCap Pro software to design data in Navisworks software to verify construction in building workflows.

Existing factory layout
Use ReCap Pro software in Factory Design Suite to visualize point cloud data of as-built or as-is conditions of a facility in a factory workflow.

Equipment removal or installation
Use point cloud data from ReCap Pro in Inventor and Navisworks software for clash detection when removing or installing equipment in existing facilities.

Road visualization and design
Use ReCap Pro-generated point clouds with mobile scanning data in AutoCAD Civil 3D software to visualize and design roads in infrastructure workflows.

Bridge visualization and verification
Display and compare a bridge's actual construction with its design by using point cloud data from ReCap Pro software in infrastructure workflows with InfraWorks software.
