MacCAD: Interstudio releases DigiCad 3D version 7

Interstudio of Italy has announced version 7 of their popular DigiCad 3D software application for architects, engineers, surveyors and photogrammetry professionals. DigiCAD 3D is used to transform a perspective, distorted photo image in a front measurable image of the building and to digitize architectural drawings or photos. The user imports a photo image—for example, of a building facade—and transforms it or traces over.

DigiCad 3D can also be used for mapping, to snap together pieces of a site map at the correct scale or to digitize aerial photos. This makes it useful to architects, engineers, or anyone involved in building surveys or site analysis. Version 7 has new interesting and specialized functions.

 

New Features in Version 7

Some of the new features in version 7 of DigiCad include:

• It is possible to transform just a part of an image, delimited by a polygon, drawn either on the original image or where it is to be transformed. This function, along with the new possibilities for transparency described below, enables you to select relevant details from the original images or photos - construction details, decoration, frescoes, special materials, damaged elements, etc.

• Resulting images can be transparent or opaque. A transparent image can be superimposed on drawings or other images and is totally see-through. For example, you could superimpose a particular construction detail over a technical drawing or one map over another. An opaque image obviously covers whatever is beneath it.

• Mosaic work is easy with DIGICAD 3D 7.0. You can join confining or superimposed images such as construction details within a building facade, or two maps scanned to different scales. The accuracy of the mosaic is guaranteed by the common origin of the fixed measurements, by the transparency of the images and by their delimitation. DIGICAD 3D 7.0 can also join a number of images with missing parts.

• Four attach points are not always necessary to transform an image. If a part of the original photo is perfectly rectangular, then the two extremes of the diagonal are sufficient as attach points

• Even without precise or detailed measurements, it is possible to make an attempt at transformation, using those elements held to be vertical or horizontal.
