  • Publication number: 20220375162
    Abstract: Disclosed is an imaging system that use point cloud data point depth values and/or positional data to accurately differentiate and extract features from a point cloud representation of a three-dimensional (“3D”) environment without loss of extremely fine details of the extracted features, and without reliance on green screens or other chroma keying techniques. The imaging system differentiate and extract a set of data points, that represent a particular feature in the 3D environment, from other data points of a first point cloud based on the positional data of the set of data points being within depth values specified for feature extraction. The imaging system may generate the 3D environment with at least one visual effect by inserting the set of data points into a second point cloud with one or more data points of the second point cloud differing from the data points of the first point cloud.

  • Patent number: 11501410
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and associated methods for dynamically rendering an image with varying detail that emulates human vision and that provides a dynamic resolution or level of detail at each layer of the image that is equal to or greater than the resolvable detail that can be detected by human vision within each layer. The system may adjust a non-linear function based on one or more of a display size, a display resolution, and a viewer distance from a display. The system may determine a dynamic resolution or level of detail for each layer of the image based on the adjusted non-linear function. The system may render the image data at or greater than the dynamic resolution or level of detail determined for each layer.

  • Patent number: 11488360
    Abstract: Disclosed are editing tools for manipulating a three-dimensional (“3D”) data file or point cloud. An editing application may generate a visualization of the 3D data file or point cloud, and a user may invoke an editing tool over a particular region of the visualization that is rendered based on the positional and non-positional values of a first data point set and a second data point set from the 3D data file or point cloud. The editing tool may differentiate the first data point set from the second data point set based on unique commonality in the positional and/or non-positional values of the first data point set, and may edit less than all of the particular region by adjusting one or more of the positional and/or non-positional values of the first data point set while retaining the positional and non-positional values of the second data point set.

  • Patent number: 11474720
    Abstract: Disclosed is a heap memory manager that manages an entry and a removal of data from a single allocated block of memory. The heap memory manager may receive a set of nodes from a tree-based representation of a point cloud or another image, may allocate a single block of memory for processing and/or rendering the set of nodes, may assign each node of the set of nodes to an exclusive range of addresses within the single block of memory, and may upload data of each of the set of nodes to the single block of memory in the exclusive range of addresses assigned to each node. A controller may then invoke a compute kernel with one or more compute kernel instances processing an address range that is different than the exclusive range of addresses assigned to each node of the set of nodes.

  • Patent number: 11468583
    Abstract: A point cloud capture system is provided to detect and correct data density during point cloud generation. The system obtains data points that are distributed within a space and that collectively represent one or more surfaces of an object, scene, or environment. The system computes the different densities with which the data points are distributed in different regions of the space, and presents an interface with a first representation for a first region of the space in which a first subset of the data points are distributed with a first density, and a second representation for a second region of the space in which a second subset of the data points are distributed with a second density.

  • Patent number: 11461987
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for defining, bonding, and editing point cloud data points with primitives. In particular, a system may receive a point cloud with data points that are defined by positional and non-positional elements. The system may associate primitives to each data point based on a material or a property associated with the surface, feature, or article at a position in an imaged three-dimensional (“3D”) environment that corresponds to a particular position of the data point in the point cloud. The system may receive input for a first adjustment to at least one of the data point elements, and may edit point cloud by defining a second adjustment that modifies the first adjustment according to a rule of a particular primitive, and by applying the second adjustment to the at least one element of a first set of data points that are associated with the particular primitive.

  • Patent number: 11455789
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system for dynamically classifying different data point sets within a point cloud with different classifications that may alter how data point sets with different classifications are processed, edited, and/or rendered. The system may generate a model based on a first set of relationships between a first set of data point elements that result in the first classification, and a second set of relationships between a second set of data point elements that result in the second classification. The system may compare the data point elements from unclassified data point sets against the first set of relationships and the second set of relationships in the model, and may assign the first classification to a particular unclassified data point set in response to the data point elements of the particular data point set having a threshold amount of the first set of relationships.

  • Patent number: 11443482
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system that receives a point cloud, and that generates a Bounding Volume Hierarchy (“BVH”) based on the point cloud data points. The BVH includes leaf nodes and parent nodes at one or more levels above the leaf nodes. The leaf nodes correspond to the point cloud data points. The system may receive input for adjusting a first set of elements of data points that are identified based on values specified for a second set of elements, and may locate those data points by traversing the BVH to arrive at a particular parent node that encompasses the values specified for the second set of elements. The system may then modify, based on the input, the first set of elements of a set of data points that correspond to a set of leaf nodes from the BVH that are directly or indirectly linked to the particular parent node.

  • Patent number: 11386235
    Abstract: Disclosed is a checksum generation and validation system and associated methods for dynamically generating and validating checksums with customizable levels of integrity verification. The system receives a file with data points defined with positional values and non-positional values, and differentiates a first set of the data points from a second set of the data points. The system generates a checksum based on a combination of two or more values from the positional values and the non-positional values of each data point from the first set of data points, and further based on exclusion of the positional values and the non-positional values of the second set of data points from the checksum. The system may use the checksum to verify the integrity of the data associated with the first set of data points.

  • Patent number: 11386610
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for rendering point clouds via a hybrid data point and construct visualization. The system receives a point cloud of a three-dimensional (“3D”) environment, and differentiates a first set of the point cloud data points from a second set of the data points based on a position of each data point relative to a specified render position. The system generates a first visualization from values of each of the first set of data points, and a second visualization from values of a set of constructs that replace the second set of data points. Each construct has a polygonal shape and a singular set of values defined from the values of two or more of the second set of data points. The system presents a final render of the 3D environment from the render position by combining the first visualization with the second visualization.

  • Patent number: 11302015
    Abstract: A comparator may automatically detect and quantify subtle and/or microscopic variance to a feature of a three-dimensional (“3D”) object in a reproducible manner based on point cloud imaging of that 3D object. The comparator may isolate a first set of data points, that represent the object feature at a first time, in a reference point cloud, and may isolate a second set of data points, that represent the same but altered object feature at a different second time, in a non-reference point cloud. The comparator may detect variance between positional values and visual characteristic values of the second set of data points and the corresponding positional values and visual characteristic values of the first set of data points, and may quantify a change occurring to the object feature between the first time and the second time based on a mapping of the variance to a particular unit of measure.
