Also keep in mind if you need leveled data from the Laser Scanner then Leica P-Series is the only option
Fixed.
Reigl would apply as well though
I have a couple of those, let's just say, WONT...

I'd be interested in a demo of the Focus S150. If there is a rep who can demo in Exeter, please send me a PM.

RTC is still larger File size and takes longer to process/Register on the back end.

Last little work done with RTC360.
Scan on the exterior of a small farm.
All scans 6mm @ 10m with colors.
C2C recording except for a small section away from the buildings where I recorded the scans using targets.
58 Target detected with GNSS with permanent network support.
(I know .. there are so many: but in the country there were two of us and so the second operator, having nothing to do, was constantly putting targets :-)
38 scans: raw file size 18.2 Gb
project in Register360: 43.790 Gb
E57 exported from Register360: 16.7 Gb
LGS file exported from Register360: 9.28 Gb
Recap (rcp) project created by importing the E57 files: 15.46 gb
Rcs file shown by Recap with 5 mm sampling: 6.14 Gb
In total the work occupies 109.57 GB.
In the campaign NOT use Cyclone field but VIS is always active.
Times in the office (Lenovo p330, I7 8700, 64 gb ram, GTX 1060 6gb card, SSD 512 m.2 + SSD 2TB and final storage on NAS).
Register360 upload: 3 h 25 '
Recording (verification with Visual Alignent of imported connections and creation of missing ones, ID assignment to targets, etc.): 2 h (as mentioned, I had many targets ...)
Export file LGS and E57: 50 '
Import in Recap file E57: 1h 40 '

Im running my S70 at 1/4 and 4x quality with color ...
May I recommend stepping down your quality setting to save time? Most of my scans are 2x quality, only using 3x when analyzing super flat surfaces.

Forgive me if you already know this but a brief explanation about the quality setting may help. The quality setting controls the number of laser "shots" that are averaged to calculate the distance. The most significant jump in accuracy from the quality setting is from 1x (not available on all settings) to 2x and marginal jump in accuracy from 2x to 3x. In my experience the amount of error resolved by using a 4x quality is insignificant (hundredths of a mm over a surface) isn't worth the extra scan time.

However, if you have a solid system that works for you, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

That's a great table, it's more compressed for the looks of it.
Has the import speed remained the same, improved, or suffered a slow down?
Machine dependent, I am seeing much improved import times for coloured and non-coloured scans with new FW and HW.

Running Xeon, 64gm Ram, Nvidia P5000 and SSD's.
Damn Paul I have a better Personal Machine. You need to upgrade man!

But it did not allow you to arrive at the conversation on time did it? :lol:
If you don't see that there is nothing, then you are kidding yourself.

Those of you that have the RTC360...

Have you traveled by plane with it?

I have not had an opportunity to physically see an RTC myself so I'm not sure how it compares in size and weight to the Faro. I know with Faro you can buy the backpack or carry on case (I would never check it after seeing how airport workers toss bags) and store it in the overhead bin but don't know what Leica may or may not have for air travel. We have shipped our Faro scanners via FedEx before but it gets expensive.

Side note...we scan a lot of roofs and have to haul equipment up by rope so I'm interested if anyone has done this with the RTC. We've also scanned large buildings with no power and had to carry equipment up 9 flights of stairs. If we bought the RTC do I need to hit the weights harder? :lol:

RTC360 weighs 4~5 lbs more per specification sheet. Faro & Leica both sell custom backpacks for similar price.

I took our RTC360 onto a roof at a fire scene once. I kept it in the hard case and pulled it up on rope whilst someone on the ground held a tagline to keep it from swinging. Next time I'll probably use a belay system to be safe instead of pulling the rope hand over hand.
