logo2Cloud

Post by VXGrid »

Hi @all,

During the last Christmas holiday I started working on a little side project, namely converting an image (preferably a logo) into a point cloud.
This is fairly simple by taking the pixels (which have a x; y position) and converting them into 3d (x -> X; y-> -Z; stacking XZ points -> Y).

Asking the right questions:
  • Is this necessary? No
  • Is this helpful? Definitely not
  • Is it funny? Somewhat...
  • It's a gadget.
My idea behind logo2cloud is that it would be nice for all survey companies, CAD departments and generally people in laser scanning that even your companies' logo will be reflecting your profession.
Therefore everybody can use this gadget to convert his 2d logo into a point cloud and include it, for example with Potree, into their website.

Image import formats are among others png, jpg, svg, gif, ...
Export formats are currently LAS, LAZ and XYZ.

Here is a little tutorial how to use it:

I have only compiled it for Windows, the executable can be downloaded from github -> releases and should be completely portable.

I just saw that Eric from Laserscanning Europe was talking about that in his laserscanning news.
He is just too fast! :D
