Importing, using the Pre-registered option, will import each setup without moving or registering the data in any way. The setups positions WILL NOT change using this option. The links created are only to show the user the existing error between links that are created upon import. All setups must be connected to be part of the same bundle in Cyclone REGISTER 360. Cyclone REGISTER 360 connects all the setups imported by the minimum amount of links, also call a Minimum Spanning Tree. These links do not come from the registration information in the setups. Blue links created indicate that there was no cloud overlap to calculate the error.
Pre-Registered is defined as:
A group of setups that have been registered together by a registration program such as Cyclone REGISTER 360 or Cyclone REGISTER. The registration has been verified by a user by visually inspecting the registration and confirming the registration errors.
Or the user accepts the position of the setups as defined in the scan data.
The Pre-Registered option will be used when the project has already been aligned/registered. Cyclone REGISTER 360 will then use this registration and create links to allow the user to assess the quality of, and improve, the existing registration.
Cyclone FIELD 360 links are not pre-Registered. Cyclone FIELD 360 projects should be imported as described in RTC360 and BLK360 import sections.
E57 projects imported into Cyclone REGISTER 360 that have been registered to control must use the Pre-Registered option to import and view the control coordinate system
Scan data file formats that support multiple setups in one file (i.e. PTX, PTG, e57), must use the Pre-Registered option in order to see the registration results. Choosing Auto Cloud and or Auto Target will force the program to try and re-register the data.
