• Equipment insurance

    Hi Navvis Family,
    Quick question for all navvis partners;
    What insurance company do you use to insure your M3, M6 or VLX?

    In New Zealand, we are paying a very high price to insure (5924 Euro = 9000 NZD / year, some insurers quote 13000 nzd = 7647 euro/year)
    Is this market rate in other countries?

    thanks in advance.

    Thank you Youlin,
    we can handle a noisy boat trailing point cloud, with a realtivley good scan of the wharf. this is still leaps and bounds ahead of anyhting else on the market, which is why we have a huge list of these to do.
    Do you see a means to delete / hide sections of unwanted cloud in the indoor viewer in the future, or is this too complex a scenario.



    Thank you mate

    speak soon.

    Cheers

  • RE: E57 File upload

    Hi Laurin,
    thank you so much for your repsonse.
    I have pasted a link to one of the files, as a way to quickly check the file types. bottom of thread.

    I notice when using the lidar ipad, there are a couple of options;
    1. you can epxort the raw point cloud as a range of typical types, .e57, las, ply
    or 2: you can process the scan on the ipad, and then export. I noticed that processing them placed a mesh over the cloud, so tried a simple export of unprocessed scan as .e57. neither file type worked. 
    I did notice that i could not open the files in FARO Scene-as thought this might enable me to transform and rotate the cloud into the correct orientation, and export out, but with no joy.

    any advice is appeciated.
    cant wait ot get the VLX to be honest....

  • E57 File upload

    HI there!
    quick question regards e57 files from alternative sources.

    has anyone tried using ipad pro lidar to scan tight small spots and had successful upload to indoorviewer?

    We have used alternative e57 files from drones and a FARO scanner in the past, but for some reason the ipad e57 files do not work.

    we have tried as both processeed and raw e57 files, as i noticed processing them produced a mesh, tried multiple ways with no success.

    any help or advice appreciated.

    Hope you are all well

    cheers

  • RE: VLX Capability

    Hi Youlin,
    thanks for the prompt reply!
    I have attached a small image of the wharf in question.


    My question was around the slam coping with being in a boat, so technically the "boat floor mapped area" does not change (as we are static in the boat), but the ceiling above it does, as we move slowly underneath the wharf.

    would the VLX "consider" itself static, in one position in the boat, and the mapped ceiling above us appear blurry like a revolving door? we would end up with a lovely scan of the boat floor area, and a blurry ceiling  / underside of wharf?

    Many thanks
    Ben


     
  • VLX Capability

    Hello Navvis family!

    question about VLX capability.
    how would the vlx cope being used under a marine structure, such as a wharf?

    we are able to walk some of the underside (easy part) and some from a small boat, at slow walking pace, with suitable headroom from the vlx to underside structure (appx 2-3m)

    I would imagine the vlx would have issues as the floor (boat) is static, while the ceiling (underside wharf) is "moving".
    SLAM issues getting lost?

    appreciate the help.

    cheers

  • Login Disable

    Hi Navvis family,
    hope you are well!
    quick question-the documentation appears to be a bit light on details- how do we disable a login so our customers can have an open instance on their website for visitors / public.

    We have a customer who would like a project we scanned for them embedded on their website.
    any help or directions to documentation that i may have missed would be great!

    Thanks
