Point Cloud for Hillside Topography

Recommended Posts

Hey There,


I wondering if there is a more automated workflow for turning a 3D scan of a hillside into a site object? The trick is the scan has lot's of trees, brush, cars, houses, etc. Besides cleaning those points off prior to import, am I stuck manually drawing the poly lines? With the clip cube not visible in plan view how can I even view a planar cut?


Thanks in advance,

You might more replies if you change your title to Topography - topology is something else - and put your version number and OS in your profile.

I ended up using the clip cube and manually drawing poly lines at each elevation step. Not fast, but it worked.
