Alignment a cloud to other cloud in Build IT Construction

Post by reverseengineer » Thu May 17, 2018 3:26 am

Hi all,
My name is Duong. I am working for a 3D technology company in Vietnam.I encountered a problem when using Build IT Construction software. I want to align a cloud to cloud. I click on Measure>Alignment and Scaling>Cloud-to-Cloud Registration to align acloud to other cloud. However, this process is done automatically so it takes a lot of time. So I want to perform this process manually but I still have not found a tool to do this. I have found some tools such as Manual Alignment, Coordinate System… They only allow alignment a cloud to surface. I hope to receive feedback from everyone.

Best regards,
Duong Bui

Currently, you would need to fit corner points using Extract Corner in both scans that can be used in the Best Fit alignment tool. Then, use Cloud to Cloud registration with a higher sampling distance (default is for metrology levels, so use something larger to reduce time). Feel free to contact FARO support as well if you’re having trouble. support@farocom

Yes, the method mentioned by Josh is perfect!
Extract Corner + Best-Fit (or even better: Bundle Registration - Select all extracted corners)

As you mentioned in your initial post, you can also use Manual Alignment command, with the Click and Drag method, you can also move the cloud per device/scan by simply clicking in the view (without SHIFT key).

Let us know via Support if you have any questions, we will be glad to help you!
