• RE: Changing Basemaps in Ivion

    Hi Laurin and Jacob,
    great thread here, thank you.

    is there detailed workflow for altering base maps, instead of google, say GiS maps, where clients have existing data and Gis is the main platform they use.?

    we have had many requests from large organisations like government and power generation clients to integrate with gis.

    never mind

    this from autodesk

    It is not possible to convert unstructured data to structured at this time. 

  • RE: Structured point cloud

    afternoon all,

    I have clients in the mechanical engineering space, who use the autodesk suite of drafting tools.

    they require the use of a structured or segmented point cloud to be able to use the auto-plot centre lines function in AutoCAD. This saves hours of drafting time.

    I understand the issue here given the navvis scans are "unified"  as a function of the capture, vs a terrestrial scanner, scanning in multiple, but individual locations.

    my  question is-can we take a 3rd party software (like  autodesk Recap)  to segment the scan or is this simply not possible? (i think i know the answer but have to try right!)

    much appreciated


  • RE: VLX Capability

    Hi peter,
    we expect to have the new VLX in our hands by mid october.
    I can assure you we will try to find the limits of this fabulous piece of equipment as fast as possible.
    we have projects coming up for large diameter water pump shafts, bridges, wharfs, historic gardens (buried ancient cooking pits) archaelogy dig sites, buildings roof cavities, factroy sites, grain silos, power substation yards and buildings, power genration service tunnels, and the list goes on.

    We will post as much of this via linkedin and facebook, so be sure to keep a look out. (wyreframe.co.nz)
    happy to share success and learnings as we go.

    Stay well
  • RE: Revit Add on

    Thank You laurin!
    this would be wonderful for our architectural client.
    great news.
  • Revit Add on

    Hi there,
    I have an architecture client who wishes to use the autodesk plugin.
    while trying to set this up, I notice the add on is renamed to the IVION plugin, at the autodesk store.
    we have downloaded and installed the add on, created the tie points as POI in the indoor viewer.
    when trying to connect the model in revit, to the instance, we get a warning showing our instance is not a valid IVION instance.
    We host our own instances currently.
    I have added an image that shows this warning.

    Do we have to have our instances hosted on the navvis ivion platform for this revit plugin to work?

    How can we connect our clients with their revit model and their instance, made available through the following address:
    All help and advice appreciated.

    Thank you so much Laurin, appreciate the intel.
     another learning curve!
    hope you are all well.

    many thanks
  • RE: VLX Capability

    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.

  • 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....
