Access: On the Menu bar, click View > Volumes to open the Volumes view. The 3D View is displayed in the center of the main window.

The 3D Volumes view is a simplified version of the rayCloud view to facilitate the volume measurements. The different layers that are displayed in the 3D View (also visible in the rayCloud) are:

  • Point Clouds: This layer contains the Densified Point Cloud generated during step 2. Point Cloud and Mesh and the drag-and-dropped external point clouds. It is the background for drawing the volumes. 
  • Triangle Meshes: This layer groups the 3D Textured Mesh and triangle meshes generated by triangulating a point cloud that is loaded as a triangle mesh.
  • Volumes: This layer contains the volumes defined by the user. 
  • Clipping Box: This tool allows to visualize only the points included in the Clipping Box. This tool is not visible in the Layers section of the sidebar.

 

 
Important: It is possible to change the Points Density by Press "Alt" + "+" or "AltGr" + "- " in order to increase or decrease the density, "Alt" + "0" reset the Points Density to default values.
 
Important: The navigation in the 3D Volumes View (how the 3D view reacts when using the mouse or keyboard) depends on the Navigation Mode selected. For more information and full description of all the possible actions to navigate in the 3D View using the mouse or keyboard: 205360675.
 
Important: Several predefined viewpoints exist such as top view, front view, etc. These predefined viewpoints are accessible using the keyboard and are using the Menu bar Volumes > Viewpoint. For more information about the available viewpoints: 202558069.  

Point Clouds

The Display Properties selected in the rayCloud are inherited to the Volumes. The Display Properties of the Point Cloud can be selected in the rayCloud or in the Layers section of the sidebar of the Volumes view. For more information about the Display Properties: 202558049.

Triangle Meshes

The Triangle Meshes are not displayed by default. The Display Properties selected in the rayCloud are inherited to the Volumes. The Display Properties of the Triangle Meshes can be selected in the rayCloud or in the Layers section of the sidebar of the Volumes view. For more information about the Display Properties: 202558079.

Volumes

By default, the volumes defined in the Volumes view appear in the 3D View as:

  • Green sphere: Volume vertices.
  • Green surface: Base surface the volumes.
  • Green lines: Lines between vertices/waypoints of the same volume. 
  • Red Terrain: Triangles between the base surface and the terrain defined by the DSM.
