I attended the presentation of Pointcab in Intergeo. This app does complete bundle adjustment. The output is complete quality information of target-based registration.

Maciej,

I saw the presentation of this app in Intergeo and was impressed. Its a early alpha release, but works anyway!

The only disadvantage is, that its still working on targets only (others are planned, told by the developer) and needs a pre-orientation and correct naming in SCENE, but helps with wrong named targets. With huge project, the workflow of finding wrong names is somehow boring, but seems to work.

Indeed, the bundle adjustment is great!

The Report-App (available for month in the FARO 3D APP Center) using the same pre orientated scans is still able to find wrong named targets and will correct them by a click. The Output of the Report-App is nearly the same like the PointCab-App. But improvement of the registration is worth to do with the PointCab-App - the bundle adjustment seems to work well :D

Fast pre-orientation in SCENE with targets can still be done fast and easy with the AutoReg-App w/o any naming conventions nor matching names or any pre-orientation in pure SCENE (but targets are necessary). Improvement by the PointCab-App is recommended (or with any other external registration software).

Stefan
