New DAVID Version 2.2

DAVID Version 2.2 is available for download now! Here is a list of the main new features and improvements:

Easier Use, Especially for Beginners

The scanned data are now filtered automatically. When you change the filter settings, you will see their effect directly in 3D.
A magnifying glass in the live camera image helps you to adjust camera and laser focus (toggle with left mouse button).
DAVID now comes in a convenient Windows installer.

Multi-Language Interface
DAVID's user interface and user manual are available in Engish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and new: Polish!
Scan Without Background
Under certain conditions, DAVID can now scan without background planes! However, you will need a precisely repeatable laser motion, e.g. by using a motor-driven laser or by projecting a moving line with a video projector.
The basic procedure, pros and cons, and some important remarks about using this feature can be found in this user manual page (http://www.david-laserscanner.com/wiki/user_manual/scanning_without_background).
There are some more improvements and bugfixes included in the new version, so an update (both Free and Professional Edition) is definitely recommended! See the complete list of changes here (http://www.david-laserscanner.com/wiki/david-release-history).
