Hexagon have announced the latest release of their popular 3DReshaper point cloud processing suite with a new set of features, focused on custom deliverables.
The main selling points of 3DReshaper 2018 appear to be around its brand-new reporting engine, which allows users to create, edit, customise their own reports from predefined templates or to create them from scratch.
Closely integrated into the software’s processing and modelling interface, Hexagon calls the new report editor ‘a complete tool to end your workflows with.’ Appearing to target the documentation applications that weren’t straightforward to export in previous releases, the new interface lets users add text, move images, place snapshots of a scene with labels, data tables and export the result as a 2D or 3D PDF file.
The 2018 also boasts some new tools for tinkering with your point clouds with more precision than previously. Hexagon says that the ‘clean/separate’ command has been significantly improved and new tools allow you to according to segment and filter according to the point cloud’s real colors, its inspection or intensity values.
3DReshaper 2018 also features other cool-sounding tools: stockpile measurement tool that allows you to draw a contour directly onto a point cloud to measure its volume, and the ability to compute a 2D inspection for road cross sections.
3DReshaper is available through C.R.Kennedy in Australia.
