When evaluating IR/thermal images, sensor calibration is very important. For the images that I displayed using BLK360 scans and processed using Cyclone 9.2.0.5745, I believe that there is no BLK360 calibration of the thermal sensor at this time.

I posted on September 6, 2015 on LSF showing calibrated thermal scanned imagery using our Z+F 5010X +T-CAM.

Another LSF posting on thermal data, July 22,2016, showing the calibration mapping of colors from the colorized scans.

The images that I posted from the BLK360 were scanned on the 22nd floor (air conditioned, probably at 72 degrees F) of a major Waikiki hotel about to undergo renovation. The afternoon outside air temperature is usually 80 to 85 degrees F, with the glass/window temperature probably 105 to 115 degree F. None of the temperatures were verified with a thermal gun.

It certainly doesn't look very trustworthy... I wonder why it took so long for it to be enabled on the BLK, I wonder ;)

Anyone know if it produces a key to the heat map with temperatures? Useless without that.

Isn't this product too soon on the market. It seems that they are doing their testing at this moment or in the future.

Initialy it was a scanner-recap combo but now they are trying to sell their cyclone software with it. Besides of the size you can better buy a faro imho.

Βetter buy a faro M70 it has better scan range and better accurancy..The only minus is faro yearly calibration..

I'm inclined to agree with this, and I'm not even a Faro user.

we canceled our blk reservations and got 2 m70s because of the deadlines being pushed so much etc. with the blk. looks like this was a good decision.

Seems like a gimmick then in that case.

Autodesk ReCap Pro for Mobile 1.2.1 has been on the App Store for 3hrs, but you cannot download it yet (or I have not figured out how to so it).

It is supposed to have HDR and Thermal (almost) imaging, and several other improvements. You need BLK360 firmware 1.1(not available yet? or in December?)
Finally got the Autodesk ReCap Pro for Mobile 1.2.1 to update my iPAD PRO. Did a few scans on the after Thanksgiving dinner table just to check it out using BLK360 firmware v1.1.3.
The instructions for loading the new firmware describe a SWU file. The one downloaded from the BLK site is a *.MAN file. Is this the file then that gets loaded?

We did some test scans in the office yesterday with the iPAD pro ReCAP Mobile v1.2.1 after finally getting our unit on Monday. We wanted to try it with the old firmware before we loaded the new firmware on it. Now I have to install the latest Recap Pro v4.2.1.7 so I can dump the scans from the iPAD to the computer.
