View of “internal organs”
Using a medical analogy to understand new ways of accessing point cloud data… The slide above shows the point cloud in RECAP software with the exterior envelope layer turned off, revealing the cluster of internal spaces.
The slides below show a series of “slices” taken vertically through the buildings at 1 meter intervals, from north towards the south and then from east proceeding towards the west.

I’m just sharing a few snap shots from favorite projects as the end of the year draws near… here are a few from the Alamo:
Main facade of Alamo (overall)
Close up strip of main facade dense point cloud. This is not a true orthophoto draped over a 3D mesh – just the points themselves – effectively an “Orthophoto” but a little grainy – click to zoom in.
Here is an thumbnail of an orthophoto elevation of the Convento.
This is an orthophoto- a 3D mesh made from the point cloud and then texturized… click to zoom in to see the difference.
Below is a photo I shot a few years back of the second residence of the Dooley family (of Maymont in Richmond). This building sits atop Afton Mountain on the Blue Ridge. How I wish it were still a part of Maymont – and shown the same amount of care and stewardship. It is such a shame that it sits there neglected… How I would love to make a careful set of drawings of this beauty…
Over the month of October we’ve been collecting scans throughout the Maymont Mansion in Richmond in order to create a whole house scan and a detailed set of measured drawings in support of a comprehensive HSR being prepared by Preservation Design Partnership in Philadelphia. Here are a few screen shots of the progress:
Section: different scans are shown by different colors
Elevation: set to “transparent” – seeing though the house
Plan: one slice through the assembled scans
