Chartered Surveyor and one of the directors of Maltby Land Surveys Ltd. Andrew Maltby presents his overview of UNDET Toolbox V2.1 the latest software release that is helping smooth workflow from Point Cloud to Vector Drawing.
UNDET ToolBox V2 is the latest release of an application that has been developed over the course of the last three years by InfoEra Ltd, a company with a software history dating back to 1997. Hidden at the Geographical centre of Europe, this Lithuanian software developer has been quietly going about their business – until now that is with Maltby Surveys being the first UK Company to purchase Undet Unlimited Network Licence.
First project with Undet ToolBox? Getting started video tutorial will lead you through key principles of our software. These rudiments are very important since you won’t be able to run until you know how to walk.
Even in a newly built structure some initial deformation appears. Taking about old heritage objects or must-to-renovate buildings deformations sometimes are really significant. This always needs to be considered for as-built documentation or deformation inspection.
Undet ToolBox SmartBoard is a navigation/modeling dialog for fast and easy point cloud profiling. Combined together with features extraction SmartBoard is a powerful tool for automated plans and sections extraction, vectorization of irregular profiles and 3D modeling.
Best things happen unexpected. This exactly happened to our newly developed mesh. Neither we nor our users saw anything like this before. Therefore, I feel pretty confident saying that there is no similar meshing functionality in the market. If you can deny me, don’t hesitate, really, drop down some references in comments.
If you merge your scanning positions before moving point cloud into AutoCAD you will not be able to use this feature. But keep reading and this might change your mind. In fact, post doesn’t have lots of written in it. This time 25 min video tutorial of True Scan View navigation inside AutoCAD, its application approaches and synergy with automated features extraction. Enjoy.
Have the desktop applications for point cloud processing improved as much as laser scanners in the past years? Let’s say you spent one day in the field scanning your object with a fancy hardware which captures 1million points/sec, spent one more day for adjustment and registration. If your final deliverable is 2D documentation or 3D model you’d probably transfer your point cloud into CAD. And here is the annoying part - you know that CAD will struggle dealing with all this huge and rich data, so what you usually do? Let me answer this, you decimate your point cloud to half of the points or even less to increase CAD performance and merge your scanning positions to make your point cloud more manageable. So here is my open question: Do you use only half or even less of your fancy scanner abilities?
The new Undet ToolBox V2 is a heavy extension of the primary release. Yes, heavy! Because additionally it has a bunch of great features that facilitates and speeds up advanced modelling of point clouds. It provides best value for users who want to work efficiently with point clouds in AutoCAD and speed up vectorization of 2D drawings and 3D modeling...
The most powerful animal in the rainforest is not a tiger or an elephant. It is an ant. Leaf cutter ants are so powerful that they literally carry the forest away in their jaws. Undet – the nature’s finest leafcutter ant name. Imagine a human lifting a truck with its teeth… Small but powerful, simple but comprehensive – this was the primary idea when we first thought of point cloud software creation and THEN we started. Although, we started 3D laser scanning business much earlier…
