Posted by on 25 September 2015 02:16 PM

The following is a list of critical bugs or important limitations that users should be aware of which affect IMS Map360. It is not intended as an exhaustive list of all issues.

Important Note: If you ever experience a crash when using IMS Map360, when you are asked if you would like to send an error report, please always select Yes to send the report. MicroSurvey and IntelliCAD programmers can use these error reports to help investigate and fix crashing problems that occur within the program, even if it is a problem that is not easily reproducible.


Reported: September 1, 2015

Problem: Loading a point cloud database may cause the program to stop responding.

Solution: IMS Map360 is designed for compatibility with Cyclone 9.1.1. This behaviour has been observed in some cases when running Cyclone 9.1.0, and updating to Cyclone 9.1.1 resolves this and other problems. A message has been added in the 1.0.4 update, which warns users running Cyclone 9.1.0 of potential issues.

Status: Closed (1.0)

Problem: Dynamic Orbit via Ctrl+mouse may cause the display to disappear from view. Note: you can use Undo, Zoom Previous, or Zoom Extents to get back to your previous view.

Workaround: Instead of a dynamic orbit (Ctrl+mouse), use the 3D Orbit command from your ribbon and select the Set option to snap to a nearby point which will be used as the center of rotation. Note, the Set point is not "sticky" and you will need to re-select a Set point every time you run the 3D Orbit command.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future update.

Status: Open (1.0)


Reported: September 1, 2015

Problem: Witness Viewpoints do not work within a paper space viewport.

Workaround: Set the Witness View in model space and export a BMP file from the ribbon, then attach that image into your paper space view.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future update.

Status: Open (1.0)


Reported: September 1, 2015

Problem: When using a perspective view (for example, when a view is set via the TruSpace or Witness Viewpoint commands), various anomolies may be observed with object selection, object snapping, grip editing, grid lines, and more.

Workaround: We recommend that perspective view be used only for viewing your scene, and that any diagramming be done in the default non-perspective (orthometric) view. A toggle to switch Perspective mode on/off is available on both the Sketch and Advanced ribbons.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future update.

Status: Open (1.0)


Reported: September 1, 2015

Problem: Animations cannot be created with point cloud data, the loaded point cloud does not display in the animation window.

Workaround: Until this is fixed, affected users are advised to use MapScenes Forensic CAD 2013 to create animations within a point cloud.

Solution: The animation system is being revamped to work within the main CAD display instead of the external animation window.  This will be included in the next major update.

Status: Open (1.0)


Reported: September 1, 2015

Problem: When producing an .AVI of an animation, in some cases the program may terminate unexpectedly.

Workaround: Until this is fixed, affected users are advised to use MapScenes Forensic CAD 2013 to produce an .AVI file from their animations.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future update.

Status: Open (1.0)
