Manchester, UK – 2 April 2013: LFM Software, an AVEVA Group company, announced today that it is launching new laser software products at SPAR International 2013, taking place 15-18 April in Colorado Springs, USA. The new release of LFM Server has enhanced functionality to enable offline data reviews and overall project time savings. The new 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.

“SPAR International 2013 is the perfect place at which to launch our exciting new laser scanning software products,” said Bruce Douglas, Senior VP Marketing & Product Strategy, AVEVA. “By listening to customer feedback we have designed the new LFM Operating Modes to offer an unrivalled user experience. 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 direct integration with AVEVA Everything3D for the plant market, the new 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. This new module complements existing links to AutoDesk and Bentley products.

SPAR International takes place at The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. Entering its 10th year, SPAR International is focused on best practices for using 3D imaging and positioning for the design, construction and operation of process, power and offshore facilities.
