Scanning monitoring surface change workflow?

  • 1.  Scanning monitoring surface change workflow?

    I'm scanning with the SX10 a surface multiple times to monitor change over time but not certain about the workflow for processing and creating a cut/fill map (or shade map).

    Day 1: I have a single setup with 2 scans (1.the initial/reference and 2.after change). The changes are on a scale of cm.

    Day 2: similar setup location with one scan (3.after change)


    I imported everything in TBC and want to create a surface from the initial scan. But when creating a surface from the scan it's taking all the scan, not just the initial(individual one). How would you create a surface from just the first scan? and create 2 other surfaces for individual change.

    After this, I would want to create a cut/fill map to compare it.

    Not sure. But this could be a solution. For creating each surface select

    points by going to Project Explorer >highlight / right click on the

    imported file>select members. Your surfaces must now be independent of one

    another. To do this, each scan must be a separate file and must be imported

    separately. Hope it works.


    Please let me know if it does or not.


    Enjoy TBC.
