algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Volvox enables you to create, edit and analyze Point Cloud data. You can download it from food4Rhino.
The plugin is developed in the frame of the DURAARK project: http://duraark.eu/
DURAARK (Durable Architectural Knowledge) is a collaborative project developing methods and tools for the semantic enrichment and long-term preservation of architectural knowledge and data. It focuses on establishing working practices and links between semantically rich BIM models and unstructured Point Cloud data. It Is funded through the European Commision's FP7 Programme and is running between 02/2013 - 01/2016. (Grant Agreement no: 600908)
This plugin is developed as a part of DURAARK project at the Center for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) by Henrik Leander Evers and Mateusz Zwierzycki.
