Microsurvey CAD 2016 - Standard version

Post by sean2me » Sat Jul 23, 2016 8:59 pm


I appear to have the standard version of 2016. I can read and adjust my MS50 scan data but am not sure how to write it out? Actually I would really like to edit it. I did a bunch of scans in a rock quarry an need to remove lots of vegetation.

Can this only be done in Microsurvey Ultimate or some such thing?

Is there a way to write out my scan data using the standard version so I can edit it in Cyclone?

Thanks a bunch!

Yes nearly all point cloud functionality, including the various point clipping commands, is available only with an Ultimate or Studio license. The only exceptions that do not require a license for the point cloud module are that point clouds can be imported via the Captivate Import (DBXIN command) or FieldGenius Import (SYNCWIZARD command), and the imported clouds can be displayed and regenerated via the CWREGEN command.

Note that the Imported scans do get automatically imported into Cyclone, and are located within the database called "TSScanDatabase"
