aspect3D Software

Included in aspect3D from July 2024.

New AI tool: Automatic recognition of contours in 2D or 3D. The contours can be exported as VRML format (.wrl).

Simplify your work with 3D objects

Cool tools, fast results, great relief, small price!


aspect3D can effectively process and display large 3D files (pointclouds and textured meshes) even on less performant computers


aspect3D generates extremely detailed and configurable orthophotos with dimensions of high-resolution 3D models

Memory optimized

The file format of aspect3D is memory optimized, very fast and consumes little storage space


The “Measurement Tools” are suitable for the fast and accurate measurement of lengths


aspect3D enhances 3D models from laser scanning and photogrammetry professional software using practical tools and is often used as a supplement to RealityCapture

User Interface

user-friendly “graphical user interface” with various display options and easy operation

AI Contours Tool

Semi-automated redrawing of stones, bones, archaeological finds, etc.


aspect3D ist eine Software die von ArcTron entwickelt wurde. We use an optimized storage method to handle large 3D data even with low performance computers. The software is optimized for scan data from laser scans and photogrammetry, which usually consist of many millions of polygons and textures.

aspect3D is not a photogrammetry software. For the conversion of images and/or laser scans to 3D models we recommend the professional tool RealityCapture.

AI Contours

Partially automated redrawing of contours now possible in 2D and 3D

Generate recognisable 2D/3D polylines in the image textures at the click of a mouse – very suitable for walls, stones and bones, for example, but also for numerous other objects such as inscription stones, contoured archaeological earth features or drawings, etc.


aspect3D offers various selection tools to quickly and easily create, edit or export the desired selection. No long waiting while editing even with large amounts of data.

Scale- "fair"

aspect3D offers the automatic creation of so-called frames. Here the scale is automatically adapted to the size of the model. These are needed, for example, for survey documentation. Here only one click away.

Measurement- "accurate"

Through various functions, including the setting of two points, the distance can be easily read and entered into the model.  In this way, the most accurate dimensional chains are realized in the 3D model. By the way, all information generally ends up on its own freely configurable and switchable layers.

Model "cut"

aspect3D enables precise cuts. These have no “frayed” corners. Clean edges are created, ideal for the preparation of 3D printing and high-quality presentations.

Data "analyze"

The histogram tool allows various analyses of data in the point cloud. For example, the distances of the points to each other can be visualized in color.

"We have been optimizing aspect3D for 15 years for practical use to edit and present 3D models. In the process, the application has been simplified and improved over the years with constant input from 3D surveyors, making it a tool to reach for when you need a quick and presentable result."

Frequently asked questions

aspect3D can also display and process larger amounts of data with performance weaker computers. However, your PC should be equipped with at least Windows 10, 1GB RAM and an OpenGL graphics card.

You first define the desired scale and generate high-resolution orthophotos from it.

With the Plane Tool, user-defined planes are created using various projection tools, saved and can then of course be called up again.

The Measurement Tool is suitable for fast and accurate measurement of lengths.

The Survey Tool is used for area and volume calculations, among others.

aspect3D supports point clouds for fast import, display and export.

aspect3D’s proprietary .ALO file format is memory optimized, fast and consumes little storage space.

With the Transformation Tool
3D models are moved, rotated and scaled.

Data can be saved in common standard 3D file formats (see below).

aspect3D imports and exports the most common point cloud and 3D file formats:

.e57; .las; .obj; .fbx; .wrl; .stl; .dxf; .dat and other formats.
