Scanning without targets! Z+F LaserControl 8.2 brings the target-less
“Cloud-to-Cloud” registration feature directly to your PC. The user will
provide an approximate adjustment through preregistration, either manually in
3D or with a simple mouse-click within the 2D environment.
With the release of 8.2, Zoller + Fröhlich extend the license
protection with a new hardlock USB key for future commercial licenses of Z+F
LaserControl. However, the demo function of the software license during
evaluation remains unaltered in this concept. The hardlock key detaches the
license from the hardware, providing full freedom for the end-user and
preventing time-wasting relicensing issues when updating your workstation. In
essence, plug and work!
Our supported hardlock USB keys are:
- Z+F Dongle/C
The recommended solution for our power users – no time count,
- Z+F Dongle/T
The ideal solution for most flexible use job-by-job – time
count, rental license
Both versions support floating network licensing when used in a
network as a license server. The activated license server will be recognized
automatically and without manual IP address assignment. Also, the license
extension in Z+F LaserControl 8.2 can be accessed via the web through fully
integrated exchange of the encoded data.
The recognition rate of Z+F AutoTargets has now been further
improved. Actively using target codes will be filed and considered for AutoTarget
recognition, in order to filter and avoid ambiguous target numbering.
Z+F LaserControl 8.2 now supports the new E57 format developed
by ASTM. All Cartesian coordinates, intensity and RGB values can be imported,
and ZFS files exported as E57. Not included are bitmaps and spherical 3D data.
Import and export of OSF-files, the format developed by i3mainz,
Institute for Spatial Information and Surveying Technology, is fully supported
in Z+F LaserControl 8.2.
Z+F LaserControl 8.2 allows registration by a single target,
with a leveled scan and known scanner height. In the field, the scanner and the
target are mounted on tripods and located above known points, e.g. surveyed with
a total station. Traversing is now possible with the Z+F IMAGER 5010 and Firmware
for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (32Bit/64Bit) is supported by the
available Software Developer Kit (SDK).
In some cases, scans may contain misplaced data due to the
presence of highly reflecting surfaces, e.g. thermo-insulated windows, glass or
mirrors. In Z+F LaserControl 8.2, a Mirror Filter Tool is implemented, which
allows the relocation of these points onto the correct surface. It’s possible
by positioning the planar surface onto
the mirror, then associating the points to the projection with an optimized
selection tool for best data conserving of nearby components, e.g. window
Important information like resolution and scaling (m/pixel) can
now be saved to orthophotos for post-processing of the graphics in third-party
