Cloud Scans to be supported by msmac3D

Post by MSI » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:46 pm

Last week we started looking at the possibility of using cloud scan data for our 3D Simulation msmac3D
Here is the current status:
  • For the release we will allow users to import the raw xyz file into graphics (or any similar export format)
    • Generally we will have you export from your scanner as XYZ or compatible text format).
      All points will be imported to memory)
  • Users will then set limits on all three axis.
    • Only that portion selected will have a terrain surface created and shown as a grid surface
      The grid surface will then be used for the msmac3D simulation terrain
  • User will have option to select vehicles and other objects in the scan and to ignore them from terrain.
    • In order to get our release out quickly we will add in an update support to show other items like building and full color
Please see our Ordering Information
  • Release date coming soon and will have preliminary point cloud data support.
Here are a few samples of scan points brought into msmac3D graphics (these are significantly reduced sized graphics):
