THE POINTCAB STORY

2010
An idea is born
Within Laserscanning Europe, a new software was developed for the first time in order to optimize workflows with terrestrial laser scanners and to effectively analyze point clouds.
From the beginning, the goal was that every laser scanner and every CAD software should be compatible.
2010
2011
The first prototype
The software begins to take shape and the first prototype is ready. At this point, the software includes basic functions to quickly evaluate point clouds in two dimensions.
2011
2012
First enquiries and many extensions
The first interested parties have come forward and are enthusiastic about the basic functions. However, more functions are needed. Therefore, PointCab is extended with surface meshing and volume calculation. The famous "orthophoto" views that characterize PointCab are getting implemented.
2012
2013
PointCab GmbH is founded
After the software was massively expanded, the demand for PointCab also increased enormously. Therefore, PointCab GmbH is founded and separated from Laserscanning Europe GmbH. This allows the software to be marketed independently.

In May 2013, version 3.0 is finally released with new, simpler operation and its own super-fast LSD(x) point cloud format.

.
2013
2015
The first CAD Plugin
The current version of PointCab is well on its way to becoming the leading independent point cloud software, but we want to improve our customers' workflow even further. That's why, we launch a cooperation with BIMm Solutions to introduce a first plugin for PointCab: the 4BIMm tool, for the easy evaluation of point clouds in Graphisoft ARCHICAD.
2015
2016
Registration and 4Revit
What comes before the actual evaluation of the point cloud? That's right, the registration! That's why PointCab also implements target-based registration in the software and is thus becoming more and more of an all-in-one tool.

In addition, the second CAD plug-in for PointCab was developed in 2016: PointCab 4 Revit. With it, PointCab also ventured into the American market.
2016
2017
Cooperation with GeoSLAM
GeoSLAM, one of the world's leading manufacturers of mobile laser scanners, recognizes the advantages of PointCab and enters a cooperation with the company. From now on, PointCab is seamlessly integrated into the GeoSLAM workflow as OEM software under the name "GeoSLAM Draw". Owners of a GeoSLAM scanner can now process their data directly.
2017
2018
Demand and turnover rise steadily
For the second time in a row, PointCab is able to increase its turnover by over 35% compared to the previous year. This is not least due to the fact that the software is constantly being expanded. For example, in the same year the Space Wrap module is released, with which precise orthophotos of elliptical, angled and curved surfaces can be easily created.
2018
2020
With a strengthened team through the crisis
2020 is hitting the global economy hard. Although PointCab is not spared, we continue to plan for the long term and are strengthening our R&D, marketing, and administration team.

During this time, we are also strengthening our relationship with our partners and, with their help, are running a successful webinar series for everyone in the home office.

The strengthening of the R&D team is also paying off directly, as PointCab Share, the free Point Cloud Viewer is released just in time for Christmas.
2020
2020
Origins 4.0, macOS version and BricsCAD Plugin
With a strengthened team, we use the extra time in 2020 resulting from event cancellations for further development of our software and better online marketing. The results are amazing:

From March to June, PointCab is hosting the "Geospatial Weeks." For the online webinar series, we are able bring in over 30 renowned speakers across the industry, breaking all records for an event of this kind.

In April, version 4.0 is released with a completely re-designed user interface, more new functions than ever before and a new name. The PointCab software is now called Origins to better distinguish the company from the product. In the course of this, we also change our CI and launch a new website.

In May, our new 4Brics plugin is released and revolutionises working with point clouds in BricsCAD.

In July we release Origins for macOS. This makes us the first commercial manufacturer worldwide to provide point cloud processing software for macOS.
