3D structure of pipe systems
PipeCommander allows by utilizing the data of the CCTV inspection to present the routing of the lines in a 3-dimensional model. In this way manhole positions, main lines and house connections can be pictured. Provided a respective satellite system is available, even additional house connections within house connections can be presented (arbitrarily cascadable).
During the inspection of house connections manifolds and bends can be measured by a special bow measurement system. The results will be correctly presented in the 3D view, too. The bow measurement system works as an optical gauging system to assign the angle within the live video image.
If previously unknown pipes are detected during the inspection, then these new pipes will be integrated into the existing network. Through an export function the data can subsequently be easily transferred to an existing data base (including the updated DXF file).
