Veesus Point Clouds for SOLIDWORKS plug-in brings the power of the Veesus XStream Engine to Dassault Systems’ SOLIDWORKS software. The plug-in provides high-speed visualization for importing and editing enormous point clouds of any size inside the native SOLIDWORKS environment.
Once the point cloud has been loaded into the SOLIDWORKS environment, the plug-in also offers powerful point cloud manipulation tools including slicing, clipping, smoothing, lighting, magnification, color ramp, and export.
Whether you are an engineer, surveyor, site manager, or end user, Veesus Point Cloud for SOLIDWORKS gives you powerful point cloud manipulation capabilities for fast editing, visualization, and content creation.
Slice, clip, copy, delete, smooth, and light your point cloud data effortlessly, without the need for additional tools. Reduce the need for rework and site visits with powerful clash detection features.
Unlimited Point Clouds: A powerful point cloud engine allows you to work in real-time on all data sets without constraint or compromise.
Slice: Extract geometric features such as 2D lines, arcs, and circles.
Clip: Select, duplicate or hide areas of point cloud data.
Shader: Highlight subtle features with a programmable shader.
Instantly access and use point clouds saved to the Zappcha Cloud to work on projects anywhere, anytime.

New in 2021
Veesus Point Clouds for SolidWorks integrates with Zappcha, the new cloud storage and mobile capture solution for point clouds. SolidWorks users can load point cloud files directly from their Zappcha Cloud account, giving them instant access to point cloud data saved to the cloud – including point clouds captured on the latest Apple mobile devices.
Zappcha allows mobile phone and tablet (currently iphone 12 pro and up, iPad Pro) LIDAR scanning using the free Zappcha software.

CPU – 2.0GHZ Dual Core
GPU – 1GB, OpenGL 2.0 Compliant
RAM – 2GB HDD – 100MB (for installation)
For best performance, we recommend a quad-core processor, 8GB RAM an nVidia/AMD GPU, and an SSD disk drive.
Note:It is important to ensure you have the latest up-to-date graphics card drivers installed, and that in a dual GPU configuration (typically laptops) that the more powerful, non-integrated, GPU is used.
