The Shape Extraction Tool for AutoCAD helps you map point cloud data to meaningful geometric primitives like rectangular planes and cylinders.
The installer is compatible with AutoCAD 2011, AutoCAD Architecture 2011, and AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011; however, there is a tip for making it work with other AutoCADs. For those of you who use the installer, please install the new technology preview right over the existing one. There is no need to uninstall the former one.
As mentioned in an earlier blog post, technology previews have expiration dates. The Shape Extraction for AutoCAD technology preview originally expired on February 1, 2011. Due to popular demand, we updated it on Autodesk Labs to expire on August 1, 2011. So if you have downloaded it previously, you can download the new installer to get it working again. If you have not downloaded it yet, what are you waiting for? We would love to get your feedback at [email protected].
Giving out a reprieve from the governor is alive in the lab.
