3D Scanning Software Data Interoperability Gives Users More Choices for Design Software
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 2, 2011 Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today Trimble RealWorks version 7.0, the first commercially available software suite that incorporates the newly approved ASTM International E57 E2807 data exchange standard for 3D imaging systems. Trimble RealWorks version 7.0 allows 3D laser scanning professionals to use their design software of choice, depending on their applications and workflow.
Trimble RealWorks is a stand-alone solution for the interpretation and 3D rendering of scan point cloud data. Trimble RealWorks version 7.0 supports the new ASTM E57 E2807 data exchange standard, which was approved in April of 2011 (www.astmnewsroom.org/default.aspx?pageid=2455).
The ASTM Committee E57 E2807 standard is a major enhancement for 3D scanning customers across a variety of applications, said David Fitzpatrick, general manager of Trimble’s Power, Process and Plant Division. It gives the users a standard way to utilize 3D scanning data in their office software of choice. Support of the new standard demonstrates Trimbles continued commitment to enhance the productivity of our customers by supporting their common workflows and represents the next step in Trimbles long line of innovation for the 3D scanning industry.
Trimble was the first manufacturer to introduce standard surveying workflows in 3D scanning instruments and the first to make a hybrid scanner/total station commercially available with the Trimble VX spatial station.
Trimble RealWorks version 7.0 is available now from Trimbles worldwide distribution network and direct sales teams.
