3DChain :
SimpPS :
  • Thinning out 3D Points
  • Please refer to the page, Thinning out Points for further information.

EdgePS :
  • Edge Detection
  • Please refer to the page, Edge Detection for further information.

  • This is a dedicated program calculating narrow interval contours from broad interval one. Using together with NfDesign makes it possible to process geographic features widely.
  • Please refer here for further information.

Plug-in modules for NfDesign are as follows;

(a) :Find polyline contours on a section of point-clouds
  • Define section planes of point-clouds, find points on the plane and change points to polyline
  • Repeated sections are defined.

(b) :Connect points in point-clouds

  • Points are connected each other.
  • Connecting threshold can be defined.
(c) :Point-clouds with RGB and intensity can be accessed.
  • NfDesign can read and display point-clouds with RGB and intensity.
(d) :Points without overhang are connected with triangles.
  • Other than 3DChain , this program connects 3D points without overhanging in Z direction.
(e) Intesection 1 :
  • Finding intersection lines when slicing triangles repeatedly with X-Y, Y-Z or Z-X plane.
    Repeated time/interval and stating position can be defined.
(f) Intersection 2 :
  • Finding intersection lines when cutting triangles with a plane defined by 2 positions on the triangles and viewpoint.
    Length data can be output into csv file.
    This is suitabler for interactive operation.
(g) Intersection by Polyline(s) :
  • Finding intersection lines when cutting triangles with plane(s) generated by moving polyline (s) in Z direction.
(h) Mesh-points Generation :
  • Generating mesh points on 2 and a half triangles.
    Meshes are defined by X, Y interval and starting position.
    These mesh-points can be changed to triangles by (d) :Points without overhang are connected with triangles.
(i) Generating Level Points from Digital Elevation Map :
  • Generating level points from Digital Elevation Map issued by National Geographical Research Institute.
    (d) :Points without overhang are connected with triangles. can be used to change points into triangles.
(j) Generating Lateral Lines from Longitudinal Polyline :
  • Generating 2/3D lateral lines from 2/3D longitudinal polyline. Usually generates lateral lines on 2D polyline. If 3D lines are needed, (g) :Intersection by polyline is applicable.
(k) Converting 3D Polylines to 2D Drawing Data :
  • After projecting 3D polyline on X-Y plane, moving projected data as the line from start to end is parallel to X axis. This function is useful when the user only accepts 2D drawings.
(l) Classifying Triangles on each Inclination :
  • Classifying triangles on each inclination and sorting them by inclination range.
(m) Mapping Photo on Objects by Perspective View Method :
  • After setting camera position, vertical and horizontal angles of photo, and capturing direction, this program makes the photo mapped on the objects.
