OpenIndy version 0.8.0-17 online

Changelog OpenIndy - Version build_0.8.0_17 bugfixes fixed problem, that weighted alignment didnot load function parameters correctly fixed problems with fitting bundle stations This release includes a bugfix, that solves problems with saving and loading function parameters like actual temperature, material etc. Now all parameters are saved and loaded correctly. Additionally this version includes a fix to align stations in a bundle adjustment. The problem to align stations in bundle adjustment was only effected in big working areas of more than 25 meters. ...

OpenIndy version 0.6.0-14 online

Intro to bundle adjustment An open-source bundle adjustment is now implemented in the current version of OpenIndy. Here you can download OpenIndy version 0.6.0-14. The following blog will guide you through OpenIndy and how to use the bundle adjustment. To demonstrate a use-case where the bundle adjustment is useful, we will check if a tube is leveled. Preparation To check if the tube is leveled, we will measure a circle on both sides of the tube. To do so, we need to link our two lasertracker (LT) stations, one on each side. We solve this step by sticking 4 common... ...

layout with OpenIndy and Leica Lasertracker

Here is an example to mark up a layout with OpenIndy and a Leica Lasertracker AT402. Purpose of this task is to define your coordinate system for the production line, import the nominal points and mark their positions on the ground for later build up. To define the coordinate system, you may get the level information of your lasertracker first and then define the coordinate axis (e.g. in pillars of the factory). Workflow: import nominal points of the layout create geometries that define the coordinate system (level plane, points/ planes to define other coordinate axis (x or y axis on... ...

OpenIndy version 0.5.0-13 online

Version 0.5.0-13 is now online on github. The new released version includes all laser tracker types of the common manufacturers and supports their functionality (for Leica Lasertrackers, only AT401 /AT402 are supported). Additional to the implemented laser trackers this version also provides an amount of functionality to measure basic geometries, make three- dimensional analysis with this gathered data, and construct more geometries out of the measured ones. Also you can check angles and distances between geometries and measure / use level information of the laser tracker to use for adjustments and evaluations. You have different possibilities to transform your tracker... ...

OpenIndy version 0.2.1 online

The version 0.2.1 of OpenIndy is now available. It is an alpha version and is therefor not intended for productive use, yet. Nevertheless you may play around with it and maybe even give use feedback. OpenIndy is delivered with a default plugin which contains basic functionality for fitting geometries like planes, circles, spheres etc.. Furthermore there is a virtual laser tracker implementation available which simulates a real laser tracker. If you have got any questions please do not hesitate to send us a mail. You may download the source and the compiled binaries (Windows 7 32bit) here. ...
