Manchester, U.K. LFM Software, an AVEVA Group company, announced that it is launching new laser software products at SPAR International 2013, taking place April 15-18 in Colorado Springs, Colo. The release of LFM Server has enhanced functionality to enable offline data reviews and project time savings. The LFM Operating Modes covers scan preparation, registration, LFM Server dataset and LFM NetView project generation. LFM software can now integrate the upfront laser scan data preparation tasks into a simple workflow that enables maximum productivity and flexibility.

“By listening to customer feedback we have designed the new LFM Operating Modes to offer an unrivalled user experience,” said Bruce Douglas, senior VP marketing and product strategy, AVEVA. “It has greatly simplified what was previously a complicated laser scan data preparation task. The Modes can be used stand-alone or as part of a seamlessly integrated workflow within LFM Server.

“LFM Server now has even more powerful measurement capabilities and can import data from hand-held and mobile devices, giving greater flexibility and savings across a laser scan project. As laser scanning becomes ever more affordable, new industries will start to see the benefits of accurate as-built information.”

Alongside the integration with AVEVA Everything3D for the plant market, the LFM Server also includes a completely redesigned optional CAD link module for AEC and BIM projects. The connection to Autodesk’s Revit 2013 allows designers to work with massive laser scan datasets in their familiar design package. It supports rapid volume selection and the ability to look at the BIM model in the 3D BubbleView.
