DJI recently announced their new model editing software, DJI Modify, which is designed to integrate seamlessly with their range of enterprise drones and 3D modelling and mapping software, DJI Terra. The combined solution is designed to serve the needs of a range of industries, including surveying, transportation, and emergency response. 

DJI touts the interoperability of their new solution, with Modify being designed to quickly and easily import and export complex files like ply, obj, and b3dm, enabling compatibility with both Terra and other software solutions. If combined with Terra, Modify can be launched using one click in any project, immediately creating Terra models for editing, including pre-identified objects and pre-processing of the model. This allows for easy repairs on common 3D model defects, streamlining workflows.

DJI Modify Drone Model EditingModify’s intelligent auto-repair function supports flattening, editing textures, repairing water surfaces, removing floating parts, and filling holes. The smoother function displays both high and low-quality models and is capable of editing both via a single interface which can be previewed immediately. For customers seeking more control, the repair function can also be controlled manually by selecting custom polygons, areas, or meshes. 

“Complex model processing work has been a challenge for the aerial survey industry for a long time. As DJI‘s first intelligent 3D model editing software, DJI Modify has completed the last piece of the puzzle in DJI’s entire enterprise solution from data collection, data processing, to model editing,” said Christina Zhang, Senior Director of Corporate Strategy at DJI. “We believe this will lead the editing of live 3D models to a more intelligent new realm, empowering surveyors, transportation operators, and first responders to improve their workflow.”
