Check.jpg NEW: Fast UniScan Scanning Method

UniScan is a new measurement technique that makes measuring easier, faster, and more precise.


The new feature encourages a large stripe count in each straight by asking the operator to take a single sweep of the straight. If the operator wants to take multiple back-and-forth sweeps (like spray painting), then this is simple to do also.

Check.jpg NEW: Project Open QuickLoad Window

An alternative QuickLoad window makes loading project files easier. It increases the font size and reduces the number of clicks to get to a file. It also has a search box that allows you to drill down in file searches quickly.



Check.jpg NEW: Cylinder Laser Spike Filter

This filter automatically removes spikes in cylindrical laser stripes.

When measuring highly reflective tube, the points returned from the part of the diameter that is closest to the laser scanner on the FARO arm can spike away from the diameter. This filter recognizes that possibility and removed any data that spikes away from the curve before it is given to the math engine.

The filter options are in the bottom of the LASER tab in the Measure Setup menu.

Check.jpg NEW: Automatic Remeasure At Measure Error

Previous versions of VTube would always ask for the user to answer questions in a dialog when cylinder fit errors occur. This new version of VTube can automatically ask the user to remeasure if the new switch in System Options:Measure 2 menu is switched on
