    Some of the news is found below:

    Point clouds

    • An improved vectorization where the points are first saved as meshes and then can be saved to terrain models. This makes it possible to create terrain models with negative sloping surfaces.
    • Another improved function of point clouds is to filter, among other things, scanning results made in tunnels where it is possible to get rid of unwanted points/objects inside the tunnel.
    • Point clouds can also be transformed using the Gtrans, Proj4 and the Move command.
    • When you vector point clouds you can choose between retaining/not retaining vectored objects.

    New Concept: Attribute Group

    • We introduce a new concept: attribute group, which makes it easy to apply a number of attributes to different objects.
    • This can be applied in both measurement data and in the drawing.

  • BIM – What does it mean and how do we use it in Topocad?

    BIM stands for Building Information Model/Modeling. BIM is known for including a lot of information on every object in a model.

    Every object – what does it mean?

    First, data is handled mainly in the ifc format (Industy Foundation Classes) which is a de facto industry standard. Ifc only contains objects which are solids or 3D-spaces. In other words, no points, lines nor polygons that we usua...

  • The new interface is spelled AR

     

    Forget your smartphone. Augmented reality will provide us with completely new interfaces to interact with technology. It reinforces our minds and becomes an extension of ourselves, rather than a new technique that we need to learn.

    Charlotte Mattfolk is an expert on AR. When we meet her, she lectures on the subject, and has recently returned from several international fairs within th...

  • How detailed should an object be?

    Level of details, LoD, is a new concept that comes widely to our industry. We see the name in the Swedish Geoprocess standard, it’s a general term regarding BIM data in the form of solids.

    LoD is referred to in steps 0-4 alternatively, using 0, 100, 200, 300, 350 and 400 but in “our” world, we use 0-4. The degree of detail simply indicates how detailed we describe an object, starting f...
