Scan Essentials provides the ability to import, view and interact with a point cloud data in the SketchUp modeling environment. The imported point cloud can be used within SketchUp to model the scanned as-built condition, provide accurate visual context to your existing sketchup model, and to collect accurate measurement data.
If you’re a SketchUp Studio user, the Scan Essentials for SketchUp extension is part of your subscription. This extension will allow you to use point clouds directly in the SketchUp modeling interface. The point clouds can be used to assist in modeling existing buildings and/or project conditions or it can be used for visual context alongside the SketchUp model you have already created.
