iStar and Pointcab

Post by SteveBury » Wed Mar 09, 2016 3:14 pm

Is anyone using a Faro X330 with an iStar to get elevation images out of Pointcab? If so, are the Pointcab images noticeable better than you can achieve with the scanner's own internal camera? Any examples you can post up here would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

Cheers for the offer Phil. I've actually got one arriving this afternoon for us to have a play with - looking forward to putting it through its paces!

Dear Steve,

you can colorize the terrestrial scans with the iStar. The images from the iStar can be created in a high dynamic mode in few minutes so the quality of colorized scans can be improved. Elevation maps in PointCab does not use the color information. The quality of colorized orthophotos (layouts&sections) should be better.

Best regards,
Richard

PS: Is there anybody who need the function to colorize the scans in PointCab using the iStar panorama images?
