In this article, you will find out what clipping tools are available in the viewer and how to use them.


Click the scissors icon to open the clipping menu and add a new box to start cropping.



To play with the box you have a dot at the end of each axis, grab and drag these dots to change the boxe's size, you can also see 3 quarter of circles, grab and drag these to rotate the box. Getting good at manipulating this tool will definitly get some time so don't be afraid to try things with it to get used to it.

Onto the good practices, the first thing you will want to do is place the box's bottom correctly, orientation and pitch in the order that you like, once this is done you can get to the next step, placing the bottom the way you want it, the right size, where you want it. When this is done just make it the right height and there you go, your box is set. Obviously depending on what you are planning to do with the clipping this procedure might change but you should always try to keep this 3 step process in your mind.

Once your clipping zone has been set, use the different options to get the result you want.

First you have the none option, with this one you will be seeing the point cloud with it's default display.


Then you will find the highlight option, this allows you to make every point within the clipping box to glow.


The next option is the inside option, this will hide every point that is not contained within the clipping box.


Finally you can do the opposite thing of what we just did with the inside option, this is the outside option, it hides every point contained within the clipping box.


You can find more information about the box in the right menu


Finaly, to delete all boxes, click the trash icon in the clipping menu.


In case of any problem or difficulty, please do not hesitate to contact the platform's team.
