Levels3D to introduce MyCaptR, a tablet-based 3D modeling and 2D floor plan app at International CES
French innovator, Levels3D, is planning to unveil their new architectural iPad and tablet scanning application, MyCaptR, at the 2016 International CES. MyCaptR allows users to scan an environment and then interface with existing 3D rendering software, such as Autocad or Revit, to generate architectural models and floor plans with entirely accurate measurements in real time. The goal is to make creating 3D models and 2D floor plans of existing rooms, structures, and interior buildings, as simple as possible.
MyCaptR works by deploying a 3D sensor affixed to the tablet. The user enters and then scans the room to secure multiple points of view through which to capture a complete scan of the environment. A few minutes later, MyCaptR renders a comprehensive, fully-interactive, computer-designed 3D model, with the ability to insert and move walls, furnishings and even artwork. This version will be available a few months after the product's initial launch.
"MyCaptR is a terrific product for anybody who works at any level of architectural or engineering design," Levels3D president and founder, Yannick Folliard, said in a statement. "The application is flexible enough to produce everything from architectural renderings to fully-interactive 3D modeling."
According to Folliard, Levels3D has also collaborated with industry partners to create "Smart Glasses" that allow augmented reality visualization of cable pathways buried beneath floors and pavements. The glasses can also detect and locate defects that may affect the cable network.
MyCaptR will be on display at the International CES, Wednesday, January 6 through Saturday, January 9 from the Eureka Park Marketplace at Exhibit Booth 80362 in Hall G of the Sands Expo Center. It will also be available on the App Store at the end of this year. Users will be able purchase the 3D sensor from the company’s reseller after subscribing to the MyCaptR license.
