Undet Clipping Box block

Clipping box block

Use the Clipping Box to navigate between point clouds. Undet loads all points in the Clipping Box when the point count is less than the maximum point count. The maximum point count can be set manually in the Undet Density toolbar according to your system hardware parameters. If your clipping box is too big to load all points you will only see the preview points.

[On/Off] – Enabled / disabled Undet Clipping box.
[Toggle viewsection] – Hide/Show viewsection boundaries.
[Reset] – Resets clipping box to the full extent of the project.
[Clip by Line] – Creates new Clipping box by defining a line and its thickness.
[Clip by Rectangle] – Creates new Clipping box by defining a rectangle (note: use top or side view, to create a new clipping box).
[Switch Grips] – Activates Clipping Box grips to resize and change the orientation of grips.
(Tips & Tricks: use CTRL+SHIFT+1 shortcut to activate tools to move an active Clipping Box using grips.)

The clipping box can be moved to any area of a point cloud to see a more detailed view by using the arrows attached to the sides of the clipping box.
