Project contents

Annotations: Distance, angles, annotation

Cameras: Plane. Spherical, perspective and cylindrical views. Calibrated images Press here to re-set the view Flythrough: trajectories for video Is possible to look for a file in Grid point cloud: cloud of point from scans Group: all type of files organized in a group Polylines: from edges, sections or draws the file group organization with the following syntax: Folder|.|File Name

Triangle meshes: mesh created or imported Unstructured Point Clouds: un-organized cloud of points

Free viewer usage instructions


You can set up the navigation parameters opening the View Parameters Windows (CTRL+V): You can view and navigate according 3 projection views: 1) 2) 3) Perspective standard view style Orthographic Bubble view and rotating the mouse wheel (3) NB: You can dynamically change all the values selecting the value Navigation

Start to navigate in Perspective mode:

select a grid point cloud and load it

Free viewer usage instructions


Start to navigate in Perspective mode: Navigation

select a grid point cloud and load it

To view the imported point cloud: - select the file (scan1) right button of the mouse - load model - the file name is in bold and the flag in checked - if the flag is un-checked the file is not visible but it is still keeping in the memory (scan2) To discharge the file from the memory: - select the file right button of the mouse - unload model (Dome_virtual_scan)

Perspective view

Rotation: left button (1) to rotate the model Zoom: right button (1) Pan: press mouse wheel (3)
rotation pivot point is automatically set pressing a valid point with the mouse

Zoom windows: Shift key (4) + mouse central button (3)

Shift (5) key + left button (1)

Rotation around vertical according to the screen

Perspective view Projection: It is possible to change the angular size of the field of view

Clip planes: it is possible to change the depth of the point of view

Free viewer usage instructions


Orthographic view

From Perspective view is possible to move to Ortho (orthographic view)

Free viewer usage instructions


Orthographic view

In the Orthographic view you can watch the object from a planar view (point of view very far)

In the Perspective view you can watch the object from a point of view

Free viewer usage instructions


Rotation: left button (1) to rotate the model Pan: press mouse wheel (3)
rotation pivot point is automatically set pressing a valid point with the mouse Orthographic view: to move the mouse pressing the right button correspond to move in & out the plane of view; in order to zoom, you have to change the vertical size of your planar view point Orthographic view

Zoom: change the vertical size

Move in & out the plane of view: right button (1)

Movements: It is possible to set the navigation speed defining Pan scale (bigger the value, faster the navigation i.e. for large models) Perspective & Orthographic view

Movements: it is possible to change the rotation type, constraining the rotation according to a axis

Bubble view In Bubble view you can set your point of view exactly in the laser scanner position and you can constrain the navigation to this point

Select a scan and Center to local origin

Press the bubble view button

Define the up vector

Start Bubble View navigation

To go back to the standard view, press the pivot button

Load the file Select the file (scan1) Right button of the mouse Go to: to set the view so that all the objects (bounding box) are visible Center to local origin: to set the view point in the scan acquisition points Align to bounding box: to set the view according to the bounding box of the loaded model Predefined point of view

Show axis Show bounding box

Color by ID: the point cloud are colored according to the assigned ID in the Properties browser

Flythrough trajectory

If the Reconstructor project contains a Flythrough, select it and press play to navigate according to the selected trajectory

Free viewer usage instructions


With the free viewer you can: 1) save point coordinates 2) measure distances 3) measure angle 4) insert annotation 5) fix new point of view 6) save screen snap shot All the measures and annotations are saved temporarily during the session and will be removed closing the project 1) Point coordinate: open the read out windows, desire move the pointer to on the the 2) Measure distances: press . 3) Measure angles: press Press the right button of the mouse, select the first point, then the second point (angle vertex) and finally the third point .

Internal and external hyperlinks Each file in a Reconstructor project can have a hyperlink to an internal or external file. The link has to be crated with Reconstructor software. In the viewer you can only access the hyperlinks but not create new ones. To open a hyperlink select a file in the project windows and with the right button of the mouse select Open hyperlink file and then Open.

In case the selected file is linked to a grid you have can open it in 3D Bubble view A file can also link to an external file
