Merging a Point Cloud

Post by CaptureRI »

Wondering why when I go to merge a point cloud (65 scans) together it then reduces the clarity of the cloud? Thanks. Pictures attached.

Hi Ashley,

When merging 2 point clouds in 3dreshaper, all the points from all the point cloud are kept for sure.
However, all the points of a point cloud are not displayed!

When zooming in an area where you expect more points, these should appear.
You can also increase the number of points shown at each display. Just hit the small coloured icon next to the name in the tree view.
Usually, 5 million points are enough.

Note that, after merging 65 scans, it takes some time to 3dreshaper to create an optimal structure which then allows to display optimally the points (More points when zooming...)

Hi Gilles,

Thanks for all of your quick replies!

One more question for you as I'm receiving an error notification when trying to export a point cloud out of 3Dreshaper; picture attached "An error occurred during export". I've closed 3DReshaper and restarted the program but I'm still getting the same error. Do you know what could be setting this off?

Thanks,

hm...
Can you please contact 3DReshaper support (support [a] 3dreshaper.com) so that we understand what is going on?
Or any chance you are in Vegas for HxGNLive?

Hi Giles,

I'll send through an email to support now.

I'm unfortunately not coming to Vegas this year.

Thank you,
