Following on from our previous post announcing PointCloud Release 7, here is a video showing one of the new (and probably most useful) functions.
Then ortho image is easily created from a laser scanned point cloud in AutoCAD. The image is to scale and can be imported to any program that handles raster images. Draw easy elevations, great for printing or annotating for a deliverable. Contact us for more information.
We are pleased to announce that the latest version of kubit’s PhoToPlan software for AutoCAD is now available for download.
The new features include:
Support of AutoCAD 2012 and Autodesk products based on AutoCAD 2012.
New higher level product “PhoToPlan Ultimate”.
Generation of Ortho Photos from orientated images. Included in the “Ultimate” variant only.
Fit cylinder with just a few clicks in two orientated images. no need for marked points on the cylinder . Included in the “Pro” and “Ultimate” variants.
“Flatten drawing“ – project geometry to a UCS. For delivering 2D drawings from 3D wireframe.
“Unwrap Cylinder” – from at least one orientated image and points on the cylinder PhoToPlan will create a flat image of the surface of the cylinder. Included in the “Ultimate” variant only.
Create UCS from the “Dual image Draw” commands. Once defined, facades may be digitised using only a single image and with fast commands for switching between parallel planes using images only, digitising of elevations has been significantly speeded up.
Improvements to the image orientation workflow. Controlling the viewports and view is vital for fast modelling. Release 7 eases this with a number of new commands.
Support for “Ribbons” in AutoCAD 2010 to 2012: an alternative for the classic menu and toolbars (actually takes less space than showing all toolbars)
PhoToPlan Release 7 supports All 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Vista and XP (Windows 2000 is no longer supported).
Each of these new features will be examined in forthcoming posts.
Release 7 is provided free of charge to existing users on subscription but please remember to request your upgraded license before installation.
