Geoslam HUB is able to self extract floors and related images to be used inside the viewer (for preview). Not sure if it's related to Potree or other tools, but it works quite well.

To anyone interested in this topic, an update:

After checking (probably) all available solutions (thanks to all for the interesting insights and ideas!) we have decided to stick with our custom approach.
We have managed to code up and deploy a pretty robust API which does exactly what we needed:

1. send a URL to a point cloud file
2. get a set of raster underlays for each floor and a couple of sections

All this is done quickly (~1-5 minutes depending on the size of the scan, including the file transfer) in the cloud and completely automatically.
The API:
- detects floors and ceilings,
- rotates the point cloud to make it orthogonal to the screen,
- includes a scalebar and transformation metadata
and can perform additional optional tasks, such as adaptive subsampling and noise filtering.

We use it everyday. The automation completely eliminated the need to manually pre-process point cloud files before drafting in a the majority of cases.

It doesn't handle complex scans yet, but we've come to the point that it might actually be useful for other proffesionals with similar workflows to ours.

What do you think, is there a need in the market for such a service or is it too niche?

btw. We have put together a demo website where our API can be tested:

You can me a message if you'd like to give it a try, I'll give you an api-key.
