This article will give insight on the workflow process of Stitch.
Below is the workflow:
Load one or more projects into Stitch. Multiple projects can be selected in the Load projects dialog.
Click the Load Project button located at the top left corner of the screen. Then select the project folder by clicking on it once. After that click on the Choose button.
NOTE: Copy the project folder to the computer before opening in Stitch. This will reduce the risk of corrupted data files if the USB drive fails.
Rotate floor data so that the main entrance faces toward the bottom of the screen and all floors have the same orientation.
Click on the Move/Rotate all button. Left-click and drag the mouse to move the data. Right-click and drag the mouse to rotate the data. Having the floors similarly aligned will make it easier to understand and align the laser measurement data.
Review and change (if needed) panorama data positioning on each floor.
Click on the Move/Rotate Pano button. Left-click and drag the mouse to move the data. Right-click and drag the mouse to rotate the data. The desired result is to have all laser measurement data overlapping and aligned. This way the data resembles the floorplan that will be drawn from it.
Review all panorama images for proper alignment and adjust color if desired.
Click on the Adjust Panoramas button. Adjust the appearance of the images using the sliders and disable panoramas. Disabled panoramas will not be visible on the final iGUIDE.
Export project to generate a Stitch data file.
Click the Export button to generate a file on the computer that can then be sent to Planitar. Clicking the Export button does not automatically send data to Planitar. The file can be found in the original project folder in a special folder called _Export. The file itself will have the project address as part of its name. Example: 123greenst.stitch.tar.
Upload Stitch data file to the iGUIDE Portal.
Log into the iGUIDE Portal (manage.youriguide.com) and click on the +Create iGUIDE button at the top of the page. This will bring up the Create New iGUIDE page. This page will allow the upload of the Stitch data and creation of the iGUIDE with any specific characteristics.
