Read the official press release.

By joining Bentley Systems, we will be able to quickly take our technology to the next level and to open incredible opportunities to our users, while continuing to develop our products and our reselling networks. Our users will now be offered an even more efficient service and a broader and more integrated range of solutions for their business. The Acute3D team and Acute3D’s sales channels remain in place, and at your disposal, should you have any request or question.


Acute3D is a technological software company created in 2011 by Jean-Philippe Pons and Renaud Keriven. Acute3D’s cutting edge technology originates from 25 man-years of research done at two major French research institutes, École des Ponts ParisTech and Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment.

Until 2012, Acute3D was supported, financed and hosted by Paca-Est Incubator, a support structure designed to assist in the development of startup companies, which was a great help to Acute3D’s founders to design an initial business strategy and to win the French “most innovative startup” Awards in 2011. From 2012 to 2014, Acute3D was supported by the business incubator of Communauté d’Agglomération Sophia Antipolis.

After signing industrial partnerships with several industry leaders, Acute3D started to commercialize in 2012 its Smart3DCapture® standalone software solution, optimized for large-scale automatic 3D reconstruction from photographs, which quickly took a leading position in several market segments.
