create sectional views from imported point cloud

oliver sadler


After opening a point cloud in Vectorworks 2017 (Mac) I was hoping to edit the viewable area by creating cut sections to see only the areas needed.

However when I try to adjust the point cloud framing box a note saying 'object has no editable behaviour' is shown.


How can sections of a point cloud be created in Vectorworks (2017 Mac) or is their another software available. The end goal is to input into sketch-up.

I have reported that there is a problem in VW2020 section viewports of pointclouds display as black.  This was replicated by the support team.   I have now upgraded to 2021 hoping it would be fixed, but alas the problem persists. 


EDIT - Just looked back through my emails and I think it was you that may have replied to my support query 😉
