Stereoscopic CAD for drone images 3D inspection and plotting

StereoCAD improves stereoscopic navigation and 3D plotting using images acquired by a drone (or other system that provides images with compatible overlap). StereoCAD is an innovative software designed to make smart and modern the use of stereoscopic images from drone. With StereoCAD you can perform extremely accurate inspections and 3D measurements, thanks to active stereoscopic perception. At the same time, there are advanced CAD commands ideal for cartographic and architectural plotting. StereoCAD returns you to the real 3D world!




A complete CAD environment is present within StereoCAD. All drawing, editing and format commands are available and compatible with popular standards. An advanced code drawing system (smart draw) allows you to automate repetitive tasks maximizing the efficiency and accuracy.



An agile and modern interface allows you to quickly switch from the CAD to the stereo and the 3D views. An overview RGB point cloud is imported or generated at project creation: through it, you can open the stereoscopic view directly on the clicked point. While stereoscopy is active you can draw 3D CAD entities, viewable and manageable even later, when stereoscopy is off.



In addition to active LCD stereoscopy, there are anaglyphic and monoscopic modes too.
There are three types of the stereo model navigation:

  • cartographic, the traditional context of  aerial/drone images, turned to the ground;
  • vertical plane, where the Y axis is reversed with Z;
  • 360° Full 3D, where stereoscopic pairs can be oriented at 360° around the subject.



StereoCAD is fully compatible with the data processed by APS, but it can also import and use the data produced by other software, such as PhotoScan and Pix4Dmapper pro.



The anaglyphic and monoscopic window is always available. In these cases, you do not need additional hardware.

Option A:

– PC: Operating system: Windows 7/8/8.1 (64 bit) / CPU: i3/ i5/ i7 or equivalent  / RAM: 4 GB or more

– KENSINGTON Expert Mouse Trackball*






– Monitor LED 3D (e.g.  BENQ XL2411Z LED 3D 24″ Full HD) or similar that support NVidia 3D vision kit







– NVidia Quadro family (e.g. K410, K620, etc.)






– NVidia 3D Vision 2 Kit







Option B

3D TV:

– PC: Operating system: Windows 7/8/8.1 (64 bit) / CPU: i3/ i5/ i7 or equivalent  / RAM: 4 GB or more

– KENSINGTON Expert Mouse Trackball*

– 3D TV with glasses 3D


*Trackball is necessary to set the elevation for professional project. Otherwise the stereoscopic view works with the mouse as well. If you have another kind of trackball contact Menci Software support in order to evaluate its compatibility.
