Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric. (2020). Masonry segmentation plugin for CloudCompare, [software]. Cyberbuild Lab. The University of Edinburgh. https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/2892.
The current version of the plugin focuses on point clouds of rubble masonry (and this also leads to the segmentation of mortar regions) for "straight" walls (i.e. without significant curvature). A future version shall also enable the segmentation of ashlar masonry and of walls with designed curvature (e.g. cyclindrical towers). The plugin contains two tools: one is for the automated segmentation of the point cloud into the wall's constitutive stones. The other one is to conduct this process manually either from scratch or (most commonly) to correct the errors of the automated tool.
