Leica Geosystems introduces the Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 app.
As part of the Leica Geosystems Reality Capture Solution, the Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 app links the 3D data acquisition in the field with the RTC360 laser scanner or with the BLK360 imaging laser scanner and data registration with Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 post-processing office software.
On-site the user can automatically capture, register and examine scan and image data. The user interface combines easy handling of complex calculations with a graphical user guidance which offers a remarkable user experience also for novice users.
The high-performance Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 mobile-device app is the perfect field companion for the Leica RTC360 3D laser scanner, as well as for the Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner. With its intuitive user interface, remote scanner control and on-site point cloud display, navigation is a breeze - even for novice users – with full imagery and point cloud data delivered directly to a tablet using edge-computing technology.
Direct data access and visualisation are the foundation for quality control in the field; with Cyclone FIELD 360, automatically pre-registered point cloud data enables users to quickly conduct on-site quality control checks, improves productivity, and makes for better-informed decisions in the field.
For improved interpretation in Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 post-processing, and to add extra value and information to 3D data, Cyclone FIELD 360 enables on-site tagging of measurements, videos, images, text or voice files to the point cloud geometry simply by using a tablet.
Cyclone FIELD 360 now contains the Quick Plan module. Features include:
- Creating rooms by swiping along walls on the display
- Defining doors and windows in the 360 View
- Inspecting the created model in the 3D View
- Export the 3D model as DXF or IFC
Other new features:
- Area measurements
- Unit settings
- Display of scanner battery status percentage
- Label devices during login to Cyclone Cloud
- Several bug fixes and stability improvements
Ratings and Reviews
I’m happy there’s an app for the phone to control my BLK360, but it’s almost easier to not use the app. Very frequent crashes. If the app crashes during a scan I have to download the scan after because it doesn’t show under my project. I’ve been trying to download one scan to a project, but the app always crashes in the middle so I have to start over. I’ve tried about 10 times now to download it. It also appears there is a scan missing. Hopefully it will get better soon.
Very Good, Almost Great
Using this with the BLK360, it’s certainly better than Recap. Simultaneous scan and download is really a time saver. However, connectivity is sometimes spotty even at close proximity (and other times great). Not having transfer via USB is a major inconvenience.
Cheap App for Expensive Equipment
We’ve been using our Leica BLK360 scanner for years with lots of success. Following Autodesk’s decision to stop support Recap Mobile however has made our scanner nearly useless, solely due to this application’s constant crashing and lack of support.
The app crashes at almost every scan, cannot hold a connection to the scanner despite being 10ft away, and now I can’t even get the app to open on our iPad, losing two weeks of registration efforts.
Needs serious work.
