Office Productivity Gains
Cyclone 8.0 features several enhancements that increase office productivity, often significantly:
New Connectivity, Sharing, and Customization Capabilities
Registered laser scan or High-Definition Survey™ (HDS™) data is a rich source of “as-is” or scene information that is often shared and leveraged among many users and disciplines. Cyclone 8.0 provides exciting new capabilities to further leverage this rich information source:
To use the new Hotlink markup capability, a Leica Cyclone 8.0 user simply selects a spatial area of the point cloud to publish Leica TruViews with built-in Hotlinks to asset information for this same area.
New Business Opportunities
Both the new “Model Library” and the new “Scripting API” capabilities open new business opportunities for users. Now users can readily share, trade or sell complex models created from geometric primitives that, in turn, have been created from point clouds. Likewise, the Scripting API enables users to create customized point cloud processing and model building applications that can provide a competitive advantage for service businesses. Scripts can also be shared, traded, or sold.
A plant area that has been modeled from a point cloud in Leica Cyclone. The user has saved the tall vertical vessel into his model library, a new feature in this Cyclone 8.0 release, so he can easily insert it at other locations in the plant where he finds it used. He will also have it available for future projects and can easily share it with other users.
