How to visualize a Point Cloud in the rayCloud

Pix4Dmapper can be used to visualize:


External Point Clouds

It is possible to import an external Point Cloud in the rayCloud to visualize it. The external Point Cloud that will be imported with this workflow cannot be used for measurements and further processing (step 3. DSM, Orthomosaic and Index) and cannot be edited using the rayCloud. It will only be displayed in the rayCloud for visualization purposes. To use the external Point Cloud for processing: 202560049.

 
Important:
  • The Point Cloud has to be in one of these formats: .ply, .xyz, .las or .laz.
  • To open a georeferenced .las or .laz Point Cloud, the project needs to have a known coordinate system, not an arbitrary one.
  • The georeferenced .las and .laz Point Clouds need to have a known coordinate system.
  • The .ply, .xyz and the non georeferenced .las and .laz Point Clouds need to be centered around zero and have the same units as the project.

To visualize an external Point Cloud in the rayCloud:

1. Open the project.
2. On the Menu bar, click View > rayCloud.
3. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the external Point Cloud.
4. Drag and drop the Point Cloud file into the left sidebar, in the section Layers, in the layer Point Clouds.

 
Warning:
  • DO NOT drag and drop the Point Cloud while a project is processing: Processing may stop.
  • DO NOT use Pix4Dmapper as an administrator.
