3D Vision Basic Toolkit, Feeback And Requests

Go to solution


National Instruments is introducing an experimental version of the 3D Vision Toolkit. By allowing for 3D Image processing in LabVIEW, NI is taking the first step to address requirements in plane surface defect inspection and 3D metrology applications. The 3D Vision Toolkit contains a set of APIs that can help create simple 3D Machine Vision analysis. We encourage users to actively give feedback and feature requests so that we can address these as quickly as possible and push new updates to the toolkit.



The 3D Vision Toolkit provides basic 3D file I/O capabilities, point cloud processing, visualization, and basic metrology capabilities. The 3D Vision Toolkit also provides capabilities to load point clouds from a depth image or set data directly to a point cloud.


Software requirements

  • LabVIEW 2015/16/17 or 18 (32/64 bit)
  • Vision Development Module 2016/17/18 (32/64 bit)
  • Windows 10 (Not tested on other windows' versions)
  • VI PackageManager


Download Instructions:

  • Download the VI Packages appropriately from NI Labs 3D Vision Toolkit.
  • Administrator rights are required to install the 3D Vision Toolkit
  • LabVIEW will restart once at the end of installation.

Please ask questions and provide feedback to NI R&D here.

Any further development plan? Basic 3D tool and Stereo can not fulfill our need. Can you intergrate more function of PCL library?Such like point smooth,sparseness, remove outliner point and so on. 3D data process demand explosive increase this year.

niadvvision.dll is installed as a part of the toolkit and APIs will pick it up directly.

Were you able to install the toolkit as an adminstrator?

Which windows version? the toolkit was tested only for Windows 10.

Can you see if niadvvision.dll is available @ C:\Windows\System32\ and as c:\Windows\SysWOW64 folders?
