Thinkbox Software Reveals Sequoia at SIGGRAPH 2014

Powerful Standalone Point Meshing Tool Capable of Handling Extremely Large Data Sets Simplifies Data Visualization (August 11, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-8-11--
SIGGRAPH, Booth 609 -- Thinkbox Software today announced Sequoia, a powerful new standalone tool for converting particle and point cloud data to geometry backed by Thinkbox's new application framework. Tailored for applications in the architecture, engineering and construction markets, Sequoia creates a single mesh from particles, vertex clouds, or laser scan data. 



Compatible across OSX, Linux and Windows platforms, Sequoia leverages a brand new application framework that embraces out-of-core asynchronous parallel processing. The framework allows for progressive workflows where results can be returned before all the data is loaded, allowing users to work faster and without software wait times. Flexible file I/O ensures Sequoia can ingest or export data in nearly any format required, enabling seamless integration within established pipelines and toolsets. Once a 3D mesh has been generated, additional features allow for smoothing and decimation to reduce triangle count. Meshes can be colored and can be textured through image projections for enhanced data visualization. 

"Sequoia establishes the foundation for a new way of working with Thinkbox tools. We've created a new standalone architecture for handling massive amounts of data, helping users work faster, easier and with data sets that exceed actual memory. Efficient 3D data visualization through textured and colored meshes is only the beginning of what we aim to achieve with Sequoia technology," said Chris Bond, founder, Thinkbox Software. 

Currently in development, the Sequoia beta is expected to launch early 2015. Thinkbox Software will preview the technology at the SIGGRAPH Conference in Vancouver, BC in the booth #609 from August 10-14, 2014.
