Autodesk Completes Acquisition of Allpoint Systems Technology
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Autodesk, Inc., the leader in cloud-based design and engineering software, has completed the acquisition of technology and a development team from Allpoint Systems LLC, a Pittsburgh, PA-based developer of software and solutions for collecting and processing LiDAR (laser) point cloud data. The Allpoint Systems team and technology will help Autodesk expand the development of cloud-based reality capture software and solutions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition of Allpoint Systems reflects Autodesk’s continued investment in developing sophisticated, easy-to-use reality capture technologies. Reality capture is the practice of creating digital models of physical objects and spaces using photography, laser scanning and other technologies.

Allpoint Systems, LLC offers software and data processing solutions for collecting and processing LiDAR data to the roadway and building markets. The Allpoint Systems technology and team will bring to Autodesk significant data registration, automation and robotics technology and expertise that will expand Autodesk’s portfolio of reality capture software. The Allpoint Systems technology complements existing Autodesk capabilities, including previously acquired technology from Alice Labs and RealViz.

“Autodesk has a long history of making design technology more accessible, and this acquisition is a critical part of our effort to make it easier for our customers to start their design processes with models based on reality, instead of a blank page,” said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk senior vice president of Information Modeling and Platform Products. “We welcome the Allpoint team’s help accelerating the development of new reality capture solutions that make the most of the nearly infinite computational power of the cloud.”

Business Outlook

This transaction is expected to have no impact on guidance issued on November 15, 2012.
