3D point cloud visualization on the cloud

Conditions for visualization

The 3D Model view can load and render the point cloud of a project. This allows to inspect the model with more precision than with the textured mesh. The point cloud can only be visualized if a .las file is generated during the processing on our servers, or if a .las file is provided using the result upload feature. For more information: 115005434163.

Warning: If the project is uploaded from Pix4D Desktop for processing, ensure the point cloud is exported with the .las format. Check the box in the Processing Options before uploading to Pix4D Cloud. For more information: 202557799.
Information: Projects that were uploaded before March 14h, 2018 (date of this feature release) do not have the visualization activated.

Display and 3D measurements

Point clouds make use of LoD (Level-of-Detail) for fast and efficient loading in web browsers. It is possible to change the visualization settings, size and number of points, by clicking ic_settings_black.png. The rendering relies on an adaptive point size that reflects the LoD level (not the precision). This can create disparities among the points where some appear larger than others.

If the project is processed on the cloud servers, the point cloud allows to export 3D measurements and annotations that are georeferenced. For more information: 360000252583.
