Fairness (rant)
CloudCompare is a Free software. Free as in "Free speech", not as in "free beer".
Developing and maintaining a software is never free (no magic in this world).

If CloudCompare becomes a part of your business (or more generally if it helps you earning money) then please contribute or donate.


If CloudCompare has been advertised to you as a "free software" (as in "you already paid several thousand $$$ for our scanner/UAV but you can use this software for nothing") then don't hesitate to remind your provider to donate a few bucks on your behalf ;).

If you are working in a company that sells scanners/UAVs and you advertise CC as a "free software", then please choose one of the following:
  1. stop
  2. explain your customers what "Free" actually means (be insistent)
  3. contribute to the project
  4. include a few bucks in your retail price for us ;)
(Manufacturers that are already contributing or supporting us: DotProduct, 2G Robotics, Riegl)
