  1. Take laser scans of the area you want to 3D model (No scanner? No problem – access a data set here).
  2. Import laser scans to ReCap desktop application.
  3. Let ReCap Pro auto register scans to create a 3D point cloud for you in minutes.
  1. Take photographs of the object/area you want to 3D model (No camera? No problem – access a data set here).
  2. Upload photos to ReCap on the cloud.
  3. Preview + download the data to ReCap’s desktop application to stitch photos, creating a 3D point cloud.

Once you’ve mastered these two workflows, if you’re looking to create a more comprehensive point cloud you can now combine UAV photogrammetry data and laser scan data into one data set with just a few clicks. And that’s just one of the most recent features added in the latest product release (ReCap 3.1).
