Cutting plane lack of points extracted

Post by andymcc » Fri Sep 13, 2019 2:48 am

I am using Version 11 and cannot get a decent cloud export from the cutting plane tool. Using the same procedure as in V10, select cloud, select front view, menu: Drawing>cutting plane. type in RL, and then the view in bottom window and subsequent 'create' cloud shows only a slight scattering of cloud points at that RL - not nearly enough for a decent slice for cad linework.
Anything i may be missing?

I dont have RW open in front of me, but i'm sure there's a "thickness" option where you specify the cut thickness. Maybe that was set low, and you could try bump up the thickness a bit?

thanks Jared,
Yes, I get more points when i bump this up, but still no way near enough. You should be able to get a good line of points at 20 to 30mm thickness.

Hmmm.
Have you tried resampling the points to allow more density?

Maybe if you could post a video or screenshots it might help figure the problem out.
