Autodesk buys point cloud developer Alice Labs

Autodesk has acquired point cloud tools developer Alice Labs, GraphicSpeak is reporting.

The Netherlands-based company developed Studio Clouds, a viewing and editing package for dense point cloud data of the type generated by LIDAR scanning, with plug-ins for 3ds Max and Maya.

The Alice Labs website has been taken down, but you can still read the text of the old product brochure online.
