Wrapping up inspection in 2021: what changed & what’s new

In 2021 PIX4Dinspect & PIX4Dscan got even better offering you a variety of new functionalities to improve your daily work.

The past year we’ve been busy improving both PIX4Dinspect and PIX4Dscan, so we want to show you the most impactful changes. Read on and learn more about what we have been working on.


Automatic detection of ancillary boxes

Thanks to the AI algorithms in PIX4Dinspect, ancillary boxes are now automatically detected and added to the Asset Inventory where users can customize specific fields such as the model name and dimensions.

Streamlining reports

  • Simplified report generation - you can generate reports directly from the user interface, making it easier to download and share reports with team members and stakeholders. To generate your report, simply click “Report PDF” on the top right corner of the user interface.
  • Measurements on the report - all measurements and metadata are displayed in the report, including the description, to make sure your reporting is complete.

New asset type - transmission tower

Now you can select transmission tower as an asset type when creating a new asset or a new project. This will give you more flexibility and allow you to better organize your inspections. To improve the quality of your intelligent digital twins, our processing is now optimized for transmission towers.

Inspecting transmission towers is critical for ensuring the safety and reliability of the transmission lines. With PIX4Dinspect you can maintain your powerlines by easily checking the status of individual powerlines for faults and defects. PIX4Dinspect can also help you comply with different regulations such as environmental or governmental regulations, and offer you a digital inventory of your existing assets.

Manual inventory items: colineal antenna, yagi antenna and mount

To allow for better categorization of your inspection items, colineal antenna, yagi antenna and mount can be manually added to the inventory items. The different types of inventory items are displayed on the left panel showing only existing inventory categories.

Image info bar displayed under every image

To make your inspection even more effective, under every image captured, you can now see the additional image information such as:

  • Camera model ;
  • Gimbal pitch of the camera;
  • Azimuth - especially useful for the new line of sight orbit which PIX4Dscan produces, to easily identify the direction at which an image is pointing;
  • Date - the date the capture was done. And more parameters are to come.

  • 3 attempts to upload a project in the first 15 days - Data Data capture with PIX4Dscan ensures the best results after processing in PIX4Dinspect. To support trial users, we provide 3 attempts to upload the data per project without affecting the data allowance limit. (Read our policy conditions for more information). Remember to select which of the three projects will be your main as others are not shown in the main menu, although still accessible.
  • UX improvement for better usability and productivity - in the past year, we have worked on different UX improvements to make your user experience better and smoother, leading to improved efficiency and productivity.
