This algorithm takes a point cloud of a building as a main input, divides it into storeys, extract structural elements and parametrises their geometry and relationships. Input arguments are the following: (1) path to file (i.e. point cloud), (2) size of voxels to divide the dataset and identify the spaces, (3) resolution of the point cloud. At this stage, outputs are (1) a point cloud per storey and (2) OBJ files defining the boundary (i.e. faces of walls) of each space.
