GEM4D Version 1.6.1.0 available for download

Updated: Dec 15, 2019


Version 1.6.1.0 is a major upgrade with many new features such as drill hole design, mesh rotation and scaling (to place photogrammetry results), highlight of specified joint set across a triangulation, measuring angles, scene interaction with measurements, markers and mapping data.

New functionality

  • Design drill holes with right toolbar yellow ruler icon "Create design lines with 1 point" and "Create design cylinders with 1 point". Pressing the button creates a popup form with the line properties such as length, dip, azimuth, diameter and colour. These lines/cylinders are then created at any mouse pick point.

  • Measure angles by picking three points with right toolbar yellow ruler icon after pressing "Measure angles with 3 points".

  • Support for Autodesk 123DCatch that allows free photogrammetry of photos from any camera without lens corrections.

- Add tab "Complex actions => Scale".

- Add tab "Complex actions => Rotate".

"Complex actions => Move" already existed, so the combination now allows any 123DCatch mesh to be scaled, rotated, and moved to the correct location. See images below for a demonstration.

  • Highlight polygons within a specified orientation range with right toolbar palette icon "Colour on orientation range". Press the button brings up a popup form requesting dip, dip range, dip-direction, and dip-direction range This functionality is also shown in the images at the bottom of the post.

  • Scene interaction is now available for all objects in the scene:

- Measurement line and cylinders can be individually deleted by picking after pressing the right toolbar yellow ruler icon and "Delete a measurement".

- Map discs can be individually deleted by picking after pressing the right toolbar coloured discs icon and "Delete a disc".

- Marker data loaded with the top toolbar "Marker => Add markers from text file" can now be individually selected in the scene when displayed as anything else than "Points".

- Mapping data loaded with the top toolbar "Map => Add mapping from text file" can now be individually selected in the scene when displayed as anything else than "Points".

Changes

  • The right toolbar toolbox icon "Scale meshes" was replaced with a "Complex actions => Scale"-tab to allow more flexibility and to fit in with the "Move" and "Rotate" tabs.

Bug fixes

  • Selecting planes by three points did not update correctly to the stereonet and information text box - fixed.

  • Selecting "Complex actions => Move => Pick off-set in scene" sometimes crashed the program - fixed.

  • Under certain conditions, the "Clipping Mode" did not transfer scalars colours correctly to line clippings - fixed.

Please continue with the feedback and best wishes, Frans.
