Autodesk Slicer for Fusion 360

autodesk slicerI’d venture to guess that all of you know that design is just small part of producing real products. I’d also guess that most of you don’t have a CNC in your garage…except for Curt of course. More likely, you’ll find a bandsaw, jigsaw, or even a hand saw. These, when teamed with Slicer for Fusion 360, will allow you to make incredible and complex designs. Built upon the 123D Make technology, this tool enables you to produce 3D products by slicing the models in a plethora of ways. Step 1 is to get this tool to work seamlessly with Fusion 360. First, you’ll need to get and install it from the App Store. Once that’s done, you can then add it as a “custom” selection from within the 3D print command. From there, to take your models from Fusion to Slicer, all you’ll need to do is hit the 3D Print button… Read More

Design Rainfalls to Aid Water Infrastructure Design

australia 3d waterWe’ve recently expanded the range of design rainfall estimates to assist water infrastructure design around Australia. This means users can now go to a single web page to access design rainfalls for probabilities ranging from 12 exceedances per year to a 1-in-2000 chance of being exceeded annually, for any location in Australia. Very frequent design rainfalls have not previously been available. These estimates extend the range of the design rainfalls to cover water-sensitive urban design purposes. The rare design rainfalls replace the existing CRC-FORGE estimates and provide estimates derived using a consistent database and method across Australia. Rare design rainfalls are used in the design of bridges and are also an integral part of the spillway adequacy assessment of existing dams. Read More

High-precision, Underground Visualisation For Infrastructure Works

3dcityThe LARA device promise is to provide field workers with the ability to ‘see beneath the ground’. Concretely, the device combines GNSS technology, 3D GIS technology and geospatial databases with computer graphics and Augmented Reality in order to render complex 3D models of underground networks — be it sewage pipes, gas conduits or electricity cables. The potential impact of this technology is tremendous: according to a 2006 report (McMahon et all, 2006), utility companies from the UK alone create over 1.5 million street holes each year, often causing damage to third-party assets. All in all, these maintenance operations cost some EUR 5.8 billion to British society, and LARA hopes to brings these costs down significantly. Read More

Alberta 3D Mountain Mapping Aimed At Flood Management

3d mappingAn abandoned chairlift marks what once was a developed ski run that is now a destination for scientists who hope this site will lead to better forecasting of floods, drought and other weather patterns. At 2,100 metres' elevation, Fortress Ridge in Kananaskis, Alta., boasts deep snow and an expansive view of the surrounding mountains. "This is a good place for us to really understand how the snow is moving around and how fast it is melting on different slopes," says John Pomeroy, the director of the Centre for Hydrology at the University of Saskatchewan.

Mitsubishi Electric Automated 3D Mapping Technologies For Traffic

mitsubishi 3d mapA unit with three GPS antennas, an IMU, cameras and laser scanners is mounted on the roof. All equipment has been configured at our manufacturing plant, so no complicated installation procedures are needed. Three GPS antennas arranged in a triangular configuration capture vehicle position precisely, enabling the three-dimensional space of the road surface and roadside to be measured when satellites are visible to the GPS receivers. Highly precise measurements are possible; absolute and relative accuracy are within 10cm and 1cm, respectively. Read more

DataMapper Now Supports Micasense RedEdge and Parrot Sequoia Sensors

precisionhawk imageryToday, we are excited to announce that DataMapper now offers processing and analysis for Micasense RedEdge and Parrot Sequoia multispectral payloads. Users simply upload their aerial imagery and allow DataMapper to help find the solution. Multi-camera payloads use discrete bands of light to capture unique characteristics that are often undetectable by the human eye. The drone industry has been hungry for this technology to capture more comprehensive and valuable aerial data. DataMapper now ingests this type of raw data, automatically stitches the images into a 2D or 3D orthomosaic then offers an app store to analyze the maps. Available apps include vegetative indices like NDVI, VARI and SAVI as well as advanced, crop-specific algorithms. For a full of complete list of analysis apps with multispectral payload support, check out our Algorithm Marketplace. Read more
