What's new in VRMesh v10.0?

New Features:

    Construction menu:

  • Fit Curb/Edge/Profile commands: fit a polygonal curb/edge/profile to point clouds. Breaklines will be created automatically.

  • Fit Circular/Rectangular Pipe commands: fit a polygonal pipe to point clouds. Pipe centerline will be created automatically.

  • Extend command: extends the length of a fitted object.

  • Connect command: connects two fitted objects together.

  • Extract Plane command: extracts planes from point clouds to let you create a low-poly building.

  • Extract Surface Points command: removes small parts from point clouds to get desired surface points.

  • Classification menu:

  • Classify Using Widget Box command: classifies point clouds in a desired region using a widget box.

Enhanced Features:

  • Curve editing tools are improved.

  • Some bugs are fixed.

  • A maximum of 64 cores is supported.

What's new in VRMesh v9.5?

New Features:

  • Separate LiDAR Strips command (in the Registration menu): separates overlapping LiDAR strips (time-stamped laser points) into different LAS files based on the selected trajectories.

  • Count Regions command (in the Analyze menu): counts the number of regions within a given range of points.

  • Triangle to Quad command (in the NURBS menu): transforms a selected object from triangle meshes to quad meshes.

  • Export to PDF: enables you to generate a 2D pdf report.

  • Import/Export Formats: add *.csv, *.x3d

Enhanced Features:

  • Global Registration command (in the Registration menu): is redesigned and speeded up over 10 times, and allows you to generate a PDF report for comparing the mean and stand deviation before and after registration.

  • Measure Deviation command (in the Analyze menu): adds a chart window to show the measurement result at each cross-section, and allows you to add charts to a PDF report.

  • Change Class command (in the Classification menu): enables you to reclassify a region within a defined size.

  • Pipe along Curve command (in the Mesh Editing menu): enables you to create a rectangular pipe besides a circular pipe.

  • Some bugs are fixed.

What's new in VRMesh v9.4?

New Features:

  • Pick Line command (in the Feature Extraction menu): includes seven sub-commands allowing you to quickly pick a line along a ridge, railway, ditch, powerline, pole, region boundary, and road markings.

  • Classify Using Brush command (in the Classification menu): classifies points inside a brushing path.

  • Measure Track Gauge command (in the Analyze menu): measures the distance between two railways. The program will generate a centerline between them and show track gauge in curves.

  • Measure Length/Area command (in the Analyze menu): includes nine sub-commands allowing you to easily measure vertical height, arbitrary distance, polyline distance, perpendicular distance from a point to a reference line or to a reference plane, the length of a catenary curve, the area of a rectangle or a polygon.

Enhanced Features:

  • Manual Registration command (in the Registration menu): can align point clouds to ground control points.

  • Global Registration command (in the Registration menu): is speeded up for large data sets.

  • Sketch/Adjust Curve command (in the Curve menu): adds an option allowing automatic edge and corner detection.

  • Mark Edges command (in the Mark menu): can automatically mark concave or convex edges based on a curvature value.

  • Detect Single Plane command (in the Classification menu): is enhanced for more accuracy.

  • Extract Building Footprints command (in the Feature Extraction menu): is enhanced for more accuracy.

  • Create Grid Surface command (in the Feature Extraction menu): is enhanced to provide a better grid surface.

  • DXF format is able to export a grid surface.

  • Index/Attach command (in the File menu): is speeded up.

What's new in VRMesh v9.3.2?

  • User interface is updated to support high DPI monitors and displays.

  • A Measure Volume command is added in the Analyze menu.

  • Some bugs are fixed.

What's new in VRMesh v9.3?

New Features:

  • Texture/Vertex Color commands (in Mark menu): e.g., convert vertex colors to texture, convert marked colors to vertex colors, delete texture, delete vertex colors, and copy/paste vertex colors.

  • Open Cut command (in Mesh Editing menu): creates an open-cut design on a terrain surface.

  • Pavement Brush command (in Clay menu): creates a pavement along a brushing path.

  • Elevation Brush command (in Clay menu): sets a region to the same elevation along its Z-axis based on a brushing path.

  • Sculpt Contour command (in Clay menu): allows you to push, pull, and crease a contour region.

  • Scalar Label command (in Analyze menu): allows you to place a label to show the scalar value of each selected vertex.

  • LAS v1.4 is supported.

Enhanced Features:

  • Classification is speeded up.

  • Mesh processing, e.g., Boolean, Cut, is speeded up.

  • The Section along Curve command adds an option to define a section width.

  • Measurement tools are more adjustable.

  • Bugs are fixed in the Decimate Point Clouds command.

  • A tolerance parameter is added to the System Setting panel allowing a sketched curve to be approximated to a polyline.

What's new in VRMesh v9.2?

  • A Classify Points from Photos command is added that allows you to classify point clouds generated from photos.

  • A Fit Curb command is added that allows you to automatically trace curb edges and fit curbs on a surface mesh.

  • A Create Spline Patch command is added that allows you to create a spline surface from two parallel curves.

  • A Seam Patch command is added that allows you to add a patch to a target object seamlessly.

  • A Convert Marked Color to Vertex Color command is added.

  • A Copy/Paste Vertex Color command is added.

  • The Index command can read native file formats from Faro, Reigl, and Z+F scanners: *.fls, *.rdbx, and *.zfs
