Points appears again after cleaning

Post by geodezja3d_pl » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:17 pm

I created project point cloud than made some cleaning which was of course time consuming.
After cleaning up the project all the points I deleted appared again...
I tried another time, cleaned and saved and after opening project point cloud every single point I cleaned is still there.

Other issue. After updating point cloud almost all disapear (big cubes instead of points on the screen).

Any solution to avoid this problems?

Big cubes happens to me if the project point cloud creation gets interrupted or the scratch drive or destination drive gets full during creating.

You have to delete the points out of the clouds themselves using 3D or planar view if you want them gone for good. If you delete them out of the project point cloud only they just come back the next time you update the project point cloud.

Cleaned points should not appear unless updating project point cloud.
I can't imagine why they came back after saving or compacting project.

The project point cloud is an entirely separate entity and once you have deleted points, you must choose to Update by using the drop down icons under the project point cloud button in the Explore tab. Once you update, changes will be permanent. If you just save the project by hitting the save button in the top left, that does not save the edits to the project point cloud. It will save changes to raw scans and scan point clouds though...

Yes, that's sounds logical. But SCENE is not...

If I update point cloud after deleting points everything appears again or the cloud becomes several cubes instead.

Another issue (with scene 2018 if that matters):
I run function Clipping box -> Export 3D selection
It does not work property for the Scene export the whole cloud, not the selection! I wonder it's 2018 version issue only.

I get mad with this software almost every time I open it.

There is either a bug or you are not updating the project point cloud directly. Just to conifrm, make sure you are not "saving" and updating from the "Project Point Cloud" icon in the Explore tab. That should fix it. Should that not be the case, then there is clearly something wrong.

With respect to the export, if you select a clipping box, right click and then choose Active Clipping Boxes, you can export what is inside the box from there.
