Reality Modeling Software

Reality modeling is the process of capturing the physical reality of an infrastructure asset, creating a representation of it, and maintaining it through continuous surveys. Bentley's reality modeling software, ContextCapture, provides you with real-world digital context in the form of a 3D reality mesh.
