Using point cloud from laserscan to improve 3D texture mesh

Just as the title says, when are you gone implement this?
Several other programs have this feature, ex:

Hi Asrer,

Happy New Year!

In Pix4Dmapper, it is possible to import an external point cloud (e.g. from laser scanning). After importing it, the software will generate the outputs pertaining to the step 3 (DSM, orthomosaic etc.).
Indeed, the imported point cloud can only be visualized in the rayCloud, but the fusion with a photogrammetric point cloud is currently on our roadmap. I will not add a spoiler here, but please check out our latest updates regarding new and upcoming products which might cover your needs better:

You can also combine the photogrammetric and LiDAR point clouds using the free software CloudCompare.

Happy new year!

I can’t find any talk about fusion of photogrammetric MESH and lidar Point cloud, or any roadmap or news from

I’v tried cloudcompare before, didn’t get it to work. Gone give it one more try

Hello again,

I would advise checking this link from time to time, as we have some new products on the roadmap :slight_smile: At the moment, we have indeed no new product that covers this functionality, but rest assured that Pix4D is constantly working on adding new tools that will improve the processing and analysis of 3D data.

Thank you for your understanding.
