Tip #195 - Extract Geometry Enhancement [TBC v5.80]

By Vyom Kaushik posted 11-22-2022 16:34

Hey TBC’ers! Welcome to another tip.

Today we will focus on the Extract Geometry command which can be found as part of the TBC 5.80 Point Cloud Deliverables Enhancements.
To get started, ensure that your project is created and point cloud data successfully loaded.
Need demo datasets? Visit

1) Point Clouds > Deliverables > Extract Geometry

2) Create a Shape

3) Assign a name and specify properties such as layers and elevations.

4) Left click on the data layer and drag to create the desired block

5) TBC will automatically select similar block sets, from here you can click on the center of other identifiable geometries. Following which they will highlight blue; you can also adjust the intensity of the selection items to ensure the maximum accuracy view.

 6) Select the desired feature by clicking and extract to confirm your geometry selection
Use the Extract Geometry command to draw or select an existing 2D closed CAD object whose shape and size you want to use as template to locate and extract features of the same shape and size (for example, painted arrows on a roadway). You can select whether or not "found" features may be rotated or mirrored (flipped) from the selected shape's orientation.
