    All extensions, procedures, tools and other functionalities are bundled into one product: Orbit 3DM Manage and Extract. Extensions are divided in a list for Manage Data and Extract Data.
  • Asset Resource
    • Asset Inventory 2.0 has been removed from Beta functionalities. The legacy asset inventory can be enabled via the dedicated start-up preferences.
    • Auto-Add Generated Point Cloud Selection
      If the used measurement for the asset object generates a point cloud selection, this is automatically added to the asset object. The 3D Point Cloud Selection tool can be directly used to edit the selection. Auto-save is applied.
    • Shortkeys for Operational Actions
      Mnemonics have been added to the orbit.language.ini for all actions in the Create and Verify Asset Objects procedure.

    • Direct Search
      It's no longer required to hit 'Enter' when filtering the catalog table on a specific value. Direct search/filter is applied.

    When opening a mapping resource via the catalog, the import & process procedure is triggered (if applicable). If creating trajectory_simplified is the only step for Import & Process Resource, the procedure is no longer triggered.
