CloudCompare Icon CloudCompare

CloudCompare is an open source tool for working with 3D point clouds and meshes. I used to release and support the macOS version.

Windows, Linux, and more recent macOS versions may be found on the main CloudCompare site.

The versions of CloudCompare and ccViewer on this page require Mac OS X 10.12+. For Mac OS X 10.10-10.11, please use version 2.9.1. For Mac OS X 10.9, please use version 2.6.1.

Please report any issues through GitHub.

The macOS CloudCompare build on this page includes the following plugins:

  • Animation (record movies) [as of v2.7]
  • Broom (clean surfaces) [as of v2.8]
  • CANUPO (automatic point cloud classification) [as of 2.10]
  • Compass (structural geology toolbox) [as of v2.9]
  • CSF (cloth simulation filtering) [as of v2.11]
  • Facets (extract planar facets) [as of v2.7]
  • HoughNormals (normal estimation for unstructured point clouds) [as of v2.8]
  • HPR (Hidden Points Removal)
  • M3C2 (multiscale model-to-model cloud comparison) [as of v2.8]
  • PCV (ambient occlusion for mesh or point cloud)
  • Poisson (surface mesh reconstruction for closed surfaces)
  • SRA (surface of revolution analysis)

Both CloudCompare and ccViewer include support for the following optional file formats:

  • CSV Matrix I/O file format (*.csv) [as of v2.7]
  • E57 format (*.e57) [as of v2.10]
  • Drawing Exchange Format (*.dxf)
  • Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) raster formats
  • PDMS Format (*.pdms *.pdmsmac *.mac) [as of v2.9]
  • Photoscan (*.psz) [as of v2.8.0]
  • LIDAR point cloud (*.las, *.laz) (LAS format <= 1.3)

and these OpenGL shader filters:

  • EDL (Eye Dome Lighting)
  • SSAO (Screen Space Ambient Occlusion)

gactar is a tool for creating & running basic ACT-R models on multiple implementations using a single declarative file format.

gactar: A Tool For Exploring ACT-R Modelling is a technical article outlining what it is and how it works.
