Some scans are far from view origin...

Post by vesipruul »

Hello! I got some issues with FARO SCENE. After i try to register a cluster message pops out and no matter which button i click pointcloud topview appears as lines. However Left-Right view looks normal. Any ideas how to deal with this problem?

Are you using a coordinate system with large numbers? If so, try truncating the coordinates to move the project closer to 0,0,0. I expect that will solve the problem.

From one of my recent projects the top set of numbers are in state plane coordinates. The bottom set are truncated for Scene. When I deliver the point cloud to the user I give them the insertion point to use which in this case was : 1166000,662000,0
