First Launch

Installation & Launch

  1. Double-click the “NUBIGON-{version}-windows-installer.exe” file. Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages will be installed as part of the installation. These auxiliary installations might require a restart.
  2. Double-click the NUBIGON desktop shortcut.
  3. Enter your license key, and click OK to continue.
  1. Click OK to verify that you have an active internet connection.
  1. Enter your name, company name, and email address. Click OK to continue.
  1. Click OK in the window below, go to your inbox, and open the email from Copyminder Verification. Click the link in the email to verify your email address.
  1. Run NUBIGON, and confirm again that you have an active internet connection.
  2. After a brief moment, NUBIGON will launch automatically.
TIP: If you encounter any issues throughout this process, this will most likely be due to your anti-virus software. To resolve this, please first uninstall, then reinstall NUBIGON, and whitelist NUBIGON.exe in your anti-virus software settings before starting NUBIGON again.

General Tips

  • If you use a laptop with an integrated graphics card, make sure that NUBIGON uses your dedicated NVIDIA graphics card. The Console window of NUBIGON shows which card is currently in use. We try to force NUBIGON to run on NVIDIA cards. If NUBIGON is not using the dedicated graphics card, then please manually adjust your GPU settings to force the use of the dedicated GPU. See here for tips on how to do that.
  • For the best user experience, use File > Open Point Cloud(s) to open your point clouds.
  • We recommend keeping your project folder on an SSD drive. Otherwise, opening large point clouds for the first time (conversion to octree) will be slow.
  • Under Edit > Preferences, you can adjust GPU cache size. It controls the number of points to be rendered. Increasing GPU cache size will improve visual quality, but beyond a certain threshold, it may decrease rendering performance. So increase GPU cache size cautiously.
