Feature Request - Point Cloud Break line Extraction

Question asked by Mike Kohler on Sep 4, 2019
Latest reply on Sep 5, 2019 by Alan Sharp

Is there any way we can create a break-line extraction tool for point clouds? I recently had a bridge scan that i needed to create top of deck surface as well as a bottom of slab surface and parapet walls to compute volumes. Having to go through and manually create the gutter lines and back of parapet walls was time consuming. I know there is the point cloud smart picking mode that somewhat works, but i think it needs to be refined as it did not seem to be any faster than drawing the 3D lines myself. Topodot has a break-line extraction command that works much better for this. Even if we could place vertices or points inside the cutting plane view i think would help out tremendously. Is there a command or workflow that TBC already has that can help with this? If so, please let me know.

 

Thanks!
