Introducing Scan-Eye

Post by jcoco3 »

Hi all,

It has been a busy year for me, and I have been too busy too keep up with all of you as I should. One of the little things I have been working on for quite some time is ready for introduction, and it is my hope that it will become a beneficial component of the laser scanning community :D

Introducing Scan-Eye http://www.scan-eye.com/
Scan-Eye Store.png
There are only a handful of products available at the moment on the partially complete website, but we are working on future additions of specialty products just for the scanning industry. The current line-up has been designed for scanning professionals that need tools to better integrate survey control on larger projects, or for surveyors that wish to get into laser scanning but are looking for methods that are more familiar to traditional survey workflows. These products are not designed for small projects or projects that are indoors only. These will allow you to go BIG!

Not to dilute the holidays with marketing dribble, I want to offer a special gift in the Christmas Spirit. To the first five(5) LSF members (who currently own a Faro Scanner and a Total Station) that contact me via this forum's Private Messaging we will send you a little gift. Please include your shipping information and the type of total station you are currently using(brand, robotic or mechanical etc.) Sorry that I cannot offer this gift to those without Faro scanners :roll: It not my intention to be selective, just all that we can offer at the moment.

Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Thanks Scott, I hope the workflow will be as useful to others as we have found. It is not for every project or everyone, but there are so many options that it is difficult to ignore the potential if you already possess both a scanner and a total station.

Update: down to 1 gift remaining!

I think this is great Jonathan. You get the best of both worlds to take advantage of what the total station does well while keeping the detail of the scan data. I can see this being very useful in cases where you have a very wide and spread out area where you just don't have the time to take hundreds of of closely spaces scans.

I will be looking to test this out for myself and will report back!

Eugene

Thanks Eugene :D I know you have seen some of my projects using this workflow. We are very proud of what we have accomplished using this technique, and I hope others will find the value.

Lucky number 5 PM-ed me today so we are all out of freebies for now :cry:
I will post additional information when time permits.

Thanks,

Hi Jason,

I don't see why not aside from some unknown limitation using Recap for registration and a couple small pieces of hardware for adapting to the 1/4-20" thread that I was told the BLK360 uses. In fact, when that unit was first released, using the Scan-Eye workflow was the first thought that went through my mind. It would be a neat way to enhance the current limitations of that unit if you are forced to scan a larger area, and don't have the benefit of owning a P40, P20, C10, or even another "longer" range scanner. I don't know if Recap can handle adding external references for registration, especially one associated with scan position, but I know Cyclone does. Last I read here, you have to use Recap for registration and I don't know enough about Recap to assist in that implementation...for that matter Cyclone either :oops: I am hoping to find others that want to give it a shot anyway. I will do what I can to help them get going. BTW if any of the information above is incorrect, I would appreciate somebody enlightening me :lol:

If you or anyone you know owns (or has free access to) a BLK360 and wants to try a Scan-Eye setup, please PM me or email me at [email protected] and I will help you get started.
