3DR Meteor® provides you a various range of tools to align every kind of data (clouds, polylines, meshes, ...) from particular points or global shapes.

Thanks to these tools, you can face many situations as for example:

  • Align your scans on a reference model to do 3D inspection, analysis and reporting.
  • Build a coherent coordinate system to have main axis according to given geometrical features.
  • Use local coordinate systems to have different coherent coordinate systems for complex cases.
  • Align your scan passes after an acquisition so that the hardware intrinsic movement error is minimized.
A few commands to answer a lot of needs.

The command "N Points Registration" allows you to click couple of points to find the best solution so that each point clicked on the first object matches the corresponding point on the second object. This process can be improved thanks to a best fit on the complete object and some constraints that can defined.

The command "Best Fit" analyses overlapping areas to find the best position of each individual object according to the others in order to minimize registration errors, or to automatically align your scans on a reference model.

The command "Geometric Registration" to define a coordinate systems according to your needs.
