Synopsis:

The world of Reality Capture software is always changing. It has recently been announced that the addition of new features to Leica Cyclone Core will be discontinued in 2023. New features will soon only be added to Cyclone Register 360. Leica’s aim is to make Leica Cyclone Register 360 a one stop shop for all point cloud processing needs. Considering this, migrating across may provide your business many benefits. This training allows the trainer to go through a workflow comparison and help you make the transition.

What you'll learn:

Review of your Cyclone Core Workflow Overview
Cyclone Register 360 - Leica Cyclone Core Workflow comparison
Cyclone Register 360 functionality
Cyclone Register 360 processing
Converting your Cyclone Core QAQC workflow to Cyclone Register 360

Duration:

1 Day

Cost:

$1,500

Experience level: 

Professionals proficient in Leica Cyclone Core wanting to transition to Register 360
