We are pleased to announce the release of Earth Volumetric Studio 2019.7.1. This release features two new modules that provide new capabilities that offer exciting capabilities to customers who strive to achieve photo-realistic representations of their sites. The read_wavefront_obj module reads single image Wavefront OBJ files which can represent photo-realistic 3D textured buildings drawn in software like 3D Studio Max or reconstructed LIDAR data and drone aerial photos like the model shown below.
The other new module is read_geometry. The read_geometry module will read STL, PLY, OBJ and .G files containing object geometries. It doesn’t read (include) the textures, but it gives you access to the surface data as fields so it can be used for subsetting or model creation.
The release also includes numerous enhancements and bug fixes to improve usability.
We encourage all users to download and upgrade to Earth Volumetric Studio 2019.7.1.
