ContextCapture

Create 3D models from simple photographs

Reality Modelling Software

Reality modelling is the process of capturing the physical reality of an infrastructure asset, creating a representation of it, and maintaining it through continuous surveys. Bentley’s reality modelling software, ContextCapture, provides you with real-world digital context in the form of a 3D reality mesh.¬†

A reality mesh is a 3D model of real-world conditions that contains large amounts of triangles and image data.  Each digital component can be automatically recognised and/or geospatially referenced, providing you with an intuitive and immersive way to navigate, find, view, and query your asset information. You can use reality meshes in many engineering, maintenance, or GIS workflows to provide precise real-world digital context for design, construction, and operations decisions.

Overlapping photos from drones and ground-level imagery, supplemented by laser scans where needed, ContextCapture enables you to generate spatially-classified and engineering-ready reality meshes at any desired level of accuracy and scale, including an entire city.

Depending on your project and organisational needs, you can choose from ContextCapture or ContextCapture Center. If you are working on an individual desktop computer and you have projects that require less than 300 gigapixels of imagery and/or 500 million points from a laser scanner, ContextCapture is the perfect solution. If your projects are larger, and you wish to utilise multi-engine parallel processing to speed the production of your reality model, ContextCapture Center is perfect for your needs.
