Undet 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.
