    Hi Van,

    Thanks for the feedback! We will put this down on our current wish list request board with our devs. to directly import .img formats into the 3D environment. 

    As a workaround, did you know you can incorporate a .pdf with high resolution raster image and upload to Revizto? 

    Here you would navigate to "2D" > "import file" > Select the Arial photo .pdf > Import to 2D > and setup a manual 3D overlay to fit with your Revizto model. 

    As you gather site updates through Ariel images, all you would do is continue to overwrite the Ariel .pdf to maintain its current progress and still be able to refer back to is past versioning/history.

    Let us know if you're interested in viewing a demonstration on this with us!

    Hope this helps!

     

    Thanks,

    My current work around is;

    Using Infraworks;

    1. Import georeferenced imagery (or use the standard infraworks imagery)
    2. Import DEM from our lidar (Or you could probably use the standard infraworks surface, it just won't be as accurate as any survey you have)
    3. Export as .fbx

    You can then directly import the .fbx into Revizto, this gives you a 3d surface with imagery (similar to google earth). You can cut sections through it, or make it transparent so you can see your design underneath if it's in cut. We are lucky enough on my current project to be getting monthly lidar & imagery from site, so we are building a library of historical surfaces in revizto. You can then cut a section at an area of interest and see how excavation is progressing.

    It would be extra useful if there was a way in revizto to calculate the excavation volumes between two surfaces!

  • In response to David - thanks for the answer. Assume this is for Revizto 5.5? Or already available via integration-feature in 5.4?

    - If importing .pdf with raster-image is possible , then importing separate file-types for images is not really necessary anymore.

    - Assume 2D overlay cannot be combined for multiple layers (among other shortcomings), I am thinking more of a permanent solution like georeferenced imagery as Kevin Golding states. This may be put on a flat, dummy, surface because 3D-data of topography is not available in each project.

    Van - .pdf raster image import has been available has been available since 5.0 beta. So this feature should be available to you! However both suggestions of flat .pdf  raster images (manually transformed to the model) or geo-located topos from Infraworks are both excellent and proven Revizto exercises. 

     

    Kevin - Thanks for your supporting comments!

    I am currently using PDF raster for our drone overlay, but it seems to cause major graphical clipping which is quite annoying. Can you please look into what is causing this?

    What you are seeing is due to the Visibility Distance. Just like in a video game we don't always need or want to render the far away environment.

    This can be adjusted under Preferences > Camera > Visibility Distance.
