How can I make the point cloud object?


Good afternoon my friends!

I’m working with the laser scanner, this equipment generates a point cloud. However I would turn that cloud of points on an object. Later you want to insert the object in SketchUp, to see the shadow it generates.

Could assist me? Thank you!


using cloud of point to generate surface can be tricky.

There are some triangulating extensions available. you may be able to use it.




I can get the plugin for free?


Yes, the plugin is free though there is a donate button if you wish to reward TIG for his efforts.


I saw your post this morning and just now going through their blog. I ran across this article, it may help and provide addition info for you…Peace…


Now you can import point cloud directly to SketchUp:
