Viewing & Updating Point Clouds

Viewing Point Clouds

It is possible to hide/show the model using the visibility icon next to it, like in any other tab.

It is possible to fit the point cloud to view by selecting the point cloud in the list, press space bar, or double clicking the point cloud.

The context menu (opened by right clicking) allows you to

  • Edit the Point Cloud

  • Remove a point cloud from the project

  • Fit the point cloud to view

To access point clouds added by other users

To access point clouds added by other users, you need to:

  • Have access to the folder where the point clouds are stored. This means that the point cloud files and folders need to be uploaded to the server.

  • Download the files from the server to your local computer.

Updating Point Clouds

If you modify point clouds in the project detail view, the changes are not automatically updated to the 3D view.

To update point clouds

  1. Open your project in Trimble Connect for Windows.

  2. Navigate to the 3D Viewer.

  3. Open the Point Clouds panel.

  4. Click Refresh.
