Well, I can’t say that I am surprised, but it did catch me a little off guard. Bentley Systems at their Be Inspired Conference in Amsterdam announced today that they have acquired Pointools. Pointools has been licensing their Vortex point cloud engine to Bentley for the past couple years. This should significantly speed up the integration of laser scanning and CAD, setting the stage for the next generation of products. More to follow.
Congratulations to all. It’s a great day for the industry.
