Leica Cyclone

3D Point Cloud Processing Software
 
 
Leica Geosystems HDS Cyclone — software modules provide point cloud users with the widest set of work process options for 3D laser scanning projects in engineering, surveying, construction and related applications.
Cyclone lets users take advantage of traverse, back-sight, and resection capabilities of the new Leica ScanStation C10 laser scanner for more cost-effective as-built and topographic surveys and lets users create plant as-built models more efficiently from laser scans.

Unique, Efficient Foundation
The inherent completeness of 3D point clouds represents one of their major advantages over other sources of geometric information. Cyclone's unique Object Database Client/Server software architecture provides the highest performance environment for laser scanning projects. Cyclone software makes it easy for users to manage data efficiently in databases. Users can work concurrently on databases, thereby reducing the need to copy and/or transmit large point cloud project files.

Cyclone Modules for Flexible Configuration
Leica Cyclone is comprised of individual software modules for different needs and for flexible product customization.

Cyclone-IMPORTER
Many organizations find the need to utilize scanners from other providers but would prefer to process this data with Leica's software solutions.
Through direct agreements with many of the other scanner manufactures, Cyclone IMPORTER  provides direct importing of the native point cloud formats from these manufacturers.

Supported Third-Party 3D Scanner Manufacturers:

  • Faro
  • Riegl
  • Optech
  • Z+F
  • DotProduct

Cyclone-BASIC

Features and Benefits

  • Operate and Control time-of-flight and phase-based Leica Geosystems scanners
  • Field geo-reference, traverse, resection, and known point setup for automated registration
  • Fly Mode for smooth, 3D fly-through navigation, including 3D mouse support
  • Measurements between scan points and/or modelled surfaces
  • Markup scan images with redline tools

Cyclone-SERVER
Cyclone-SERVER enables individual members of workgroups to simultaneously access 3D point cloud data sets and/or models. This provides a powerful environment for collaborative design on large, complex projects, and can significantly reduce project execution time. Cyclone- SERVER supports the simultaneous connection of one through ten 'client' users to the same data server in a network environment. These clients can be licensees of Cyclone-REGISTER, MODEL, SURVEY, VIEWER, or Cyclone CloudWorx for AutoCAD and for MicroStation.
