    Looking for updated version for iOS platform.

  • Tihomir Todorov

    Hello guys,

    I am in a period of evaluation between couple of photogrammetry software. 

    My point is to calculate volume of raw material piles.

    In your trial version of the Mapper the Volume menu and optionality is not active. 

    Please advice how to proceed in order to test the volume calculation in Pix4D mapper.

    Also I had my second license expired and now it is not possible to continue with a third one. 

    If possible send your answer to my mail:

    Best Regards,

  • Beata (Pix4D)

    Hi all,

    Pavel, please check out our post regarding Pix4Dmapper on macOS. This link will also lead to the latest installation file. 

    For Pix4Dcapture iOS reach here

    Tihomir, since your trial has expired, you can only use now the Pix4D Discovery mode where the 3 step is disabled.

    My advice is to go at the bottom of this page and try now our Pix4Dbim free trial. 



  • Tihomir Todorov

    Hi again and thank you about the prompt response!

    When I go to the page for trying the Pix4Dbim free trial the system says that I dont have a valid license or something like this.

    Please confirm that the volume measurement is not included in the trial of the Mapper.

    Advice how to proceed further

  • Beata (Pix4D)

    Hi Tihomir, 

    I checked in our system. The Pix4Dbim trial is ready for you. You have 30 days to try this software.

    The volume tab IS included in the trial of Pix4Dmapper, but not in Pix4D Discovery mode.
