CloudCompare Course, Nov 23, 2020

Post by 3DForensics »

Hello All,

On previous courses, I have been asked to run a CloudCompare course. Well, I have responded and just announced a course running on Nov 23, 2020 from 09:00-16:00 Eastern Time. This is a course that will take you from the basics in CloudCompare right up to performing registration and making 3D comparisons.

https://www.ai2-3d.com/cloudcompare-nov-23

CloudCompare is a program that is used by many working with 3D data. There are a host of features that can be used to edit point clouds, combine, filter, transform, register and even animate your 3D data! This course is designed for beginner-intermediate level users who want to learn more about the workflow and capabilities in CloudCompare.

Some of the topics to be covered:

-Importing files
-Navigation and Camera Settings
-The DB Tree
-Scalar Fields
-Ambient Occlusion
-Measurements & Point Picking
-Segmentation, Deleting and Merging Scans.
-Registration Types
-Subsampling
-ELipser App
-...and much more

​CloudCompare is a free, open source point cloud and mesh processing software. Of course "free means" that it takes someone some time to write code, debug and write new features. Thus, I will be making a small donation to Daniel Girardeu-Montaut (author of CloudCompare) based on the number of seats that are sold on this course so that he may continue to provide CloudCompare to the 3D community.

The regular price of the course is $199 USD but those on my mailing list and the LSF get a discount. The course price is $!99 USD and is from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Eastern Time

Date: November 23, 2020
Time: 09:00 - 16:00 (Eastern Time), 1 Hour Break for Lunch
Price: $199 USD
Instructor: Eugene Liscio, P. Eng.

Prerequisites: You will need a computer with CloudCompare installed and running. Since the class will be run over Zoom, it may be useful to have a second monitor, Speakers are required to listen to the instructor and a microphone may be useful in case you wish to ask questions. Sample files will be provided shortly before the course for download.

Certificates: Students who attend the full day and finish all the exercises will be provided a certificate of completion.

Thanks!

Eugene

It would be nice to have the video on Lynda.com, this way you will make more money and more people will be exposed to cloud compare.

I'll consider that but for the first round, I would like to see how the response is to this course. I tend to prefer doing in-person training but since covid has hit, virtual training with live instruction seems to be the next best thing.

Thanks,

Eugene

Thanks Jason,

I hope that people find it useful to work with so they can do things that maybe their native scanner software does not do.

Looking forward to it!

Eugene

Hey Folks,

This is your last chance to register for the CloudCompare Course starting this Monday at 9am Eastern.

The response so far has been excellent and thanks to all of you who have already registered. This is my last class for the year and it should be a fun course.

Cheers!

Thank you folks. I had some really great feedback and I mean that attendees really gave me some constructive ideas on how to make the course better. I thank them all for doing that as it's the only way to make things better.

I am thinking about creating a recorded version but it will have to wait for when my work load settles down a bit.

Regards,

Eugene
