Save Scan Files

If you have imported scan data from one of your OKM Detectors or changed any existing scan file, you may want to save those changes to your harddisk.

Click Save File in the Main Toolbar or File › Save via Main Menu to open the Save Scan File dialog which is shown in figure 1.

Save Dialog
Figure 1: Software dialog "Save Scan File" with several saving options

First, select your designated folder and filename. Then, you need to adjust several options to save your scan file:

  • Scan Field Overlay
    Check this option to embed the Scan Field Overlay image that is projected onto your scan field (* only available in Professional Edition). Depending on the file size of this image, also your resulting scan file will become proportionally larger. Please read section Scan Information / Characteristics to learn more about adding a Scan Field Overlay!

  • Soil Type
    Check this option to embed the soil type information into your scan file. If you check Soil Type Images as well, the appropriate soil textures will be saved along with your scan data. Be aware, that your resulting scan file will become proportionally larger.

  • Transformations
    Check this option to embed your current transformations (rotation, move, scale) along with your scan data. If you have positioned your scan image in an individual way, checking this option makes sure, that the same orientation is applied when opening the file on a different computer or at a later time again.

  • Visualization
    Check this option to embed all current visualization adjustments (wireframe, resolution, texture settings, etc.) along with your scan data.
