How to import a volume into Volumes

  • In order to import a volume into Volumes, the dense point cloud and the digital surface model (DSM) should be computed.
  • A volume should contain 3D surfaces to be imported as a shapefile (.shp).
  • The shapefile coordinate system and Pix4Dmapper project's output coordinate system should agree.

To import a volume into the Volumes:

1. On the Menu bar, click View > Volumes.
2. On the sidebar, in the Objects section, click .
3. The Import Volume pop-up appears to navigate to the desired shapefile Volume_ToImport_surface.shp. It could be for example, a volume previously created with Pix4Dmapper of the same study area.

4. Select the file and click Open. 

The volume is now imported and selected to be displayed in Volumes.
By default, the volume is called Volume 1 but it can be renamed by double clicking on the name and typing the new name.
