Does anyone know if there's a way in Vectorworks to adjust the point display size on imported point clouds, such as LAS files. At present I find that point clouds display well at a distance, see attached image 1, but when I zoom in to inspect closely and snap a 3D locus/stake object to a point to confirm its coordinates, the point cloud becomes very difficult to interpret due to the sparsity of points against the surrounding background, see attached image 2. I've tried adjusting the pen thickness of the point cloud object in the attributes pallette / class settings, and searched in Vectorworks Preferences for any relevant settings, but had no luck so far. I've discovered a very useful open source program called CloudCompare for the inspection of point clouds. This program allows the user to adjust point display size which really helps with interpretation at close range, see attached images 3-5. Note the 'default point size' adjustment buttons in the top left. If similar control over point size display could be added to Vectorworks I believe it would greatly improve the point cloud workflow.
I have a point cloud imported from an .e57 file that is actually 7 point cloud objects. They overlay each other and together describe the building very well. I've trimmed away excess points and now I'm wondering if it's possible to turn all the points into a single point cloud object? Cris
John Whyte posted a topic in General DiscussionIve been sent a XYZ point cloud file by a surveyor that im having trouble working with in VWX Architect 2017. When i open it up it seems like its just a flat panoramic image rather than a 3d point cloud, is there some view / rendering setting i need to toggle on to get it to work properly ? Ive attached 2 screenshots of what im getting with this file below.
John Whyte posted a topic in General DiscussionOur surveyor is about to send us a .RCP point cloud file which he advises is openable in Autocad ReCap. We run VWX 2014 Designer and are all on OSX (a mixture of 10.10.5 and 10.8.5 across different machines). Can a .RCP file be opened in VWX 2014 Designer ? If not can we upgrade to a newer version of VWX which will allow us to, if so which version would we need : 2015,16,17 ?
