Bentley Descartes

Make the most of your reality modeling data with the ability to integrate point clouds, reality meshes, scalable digital terrain models, and raster imagery into your infrastructure workflows.

Advanced Processing for 3D Imagery

With Descartes you can extend your capabilities to extract value from reality modeling data of any scale through the ability to:

  • Visualize and manipulate its display
  • Combine it with CAD, BIM, and GIS data
  • Extract information like terrain models
  • Edit and clean up reality modeling data

Most infrastructure projects require the conversion of legacy documents. Descartes helps you integrate all imagery into engineering workflows to improve the overall quality of your project.

You benefit from the ability to:

  • Work with all data types, regardless of size, in a single product
  • Use advanced modeling, clipping, and sectioning tools to create 3D models of as-built conditions
  • Extract ground and breaklines from reality meshes and point clouds
  • Search and visualize reality meshes by enriching and classifying regions with additional information
  • Streamline point cloud to geometry conversion
  • Enrich, segment, and classify point clouds and combine them with engineering models
  • Produce animations and renderings for presentations

In addition to its robust capabilities to work with reality modeling data, the software ensures you have seamless integration with ProjectWise. This integration provides streaming that helps you work with extremely large files. Using ProjectWise reduces the risk of mismanaging your data and helps maintain document integrity.
