DotProduct Announces Phi.3D 2.1 to Feature Direct Integration with Z+F LaserControl Scout

This partnership allows DotProduct and Z+F customers to perform wireless, in-field registration.

Houston, TX, USA, 13 April, 2016 – Today on the showroom floor at SPAR 3D, DotProduct is announcing the release of Phi.3D 2.1, to be released this May. This update will bring direct integration with the Z+F IMAGER® 5010X and Z+F LaserControl® Scout to every DotProduct tablet. 

Phi.3D 2.1: DotProduct partners with Z+F to provide in field registration from DPI-8 to 5010X
After several months of beta testing, DotProduct is today announcing that direct Z+F compatibility will be built into the upcoming release of Phi.3D 2.1. This highly effective workflow will allow users to register DotProduct scan data directly to Z+F IMAGER® 5010X tripod scan data, wirelessly in the field with Z+F LaserControl® Scout operating on a Windows tablet.

With LaserControl® Scout recognizing DotProduct’s highly compressed .DP format, the wireless data transfer is very fast and seamless in the field. “The use of our data in conjunction with tripod laser scanners has always been of great value to our customers, and it has never been easier than it is today with Z+F and the Z+F IMAGER® 5010X” said Tom Greaves, chief marketing officer, DotProduct LLC. With this workflow, DPI-8 and Z+F IMAGER® 5010X users will have the unique ability to add detail and fill in gaps in tripod scan data in the field, and register it all together wirelessly before leaving the job site. 

Phi.3D 2.1 is also improving integration with several other powerful workflows, including reference bar targeting and Elysium InfiPoints. Additional improvements will include core enhancements to the tracking stability, optimization, and accuracy at depth, as well as a direct link to open data in Dot3D, a new multi-platform point cloud editor from DotProduct, set for beta release this May. 

“We are very proud of this solution as this direct communication to the DotProduct devices perfectly fits the concept of our blue workflow, to leave the site with a complete and registered dataset.”, says Christoph Fröhlich, CEO Z+F GmbH.
