To Create a Clipping Box in SCENE 5.3, follow these steps:
First, Open a 3D view and navigate to the area of interest.
There are various ways to create a clipping box:
Automatically (default) – Click the Create a new clipping box button in the 3D view toolbar. A clipping box will be created close to the center of the current 3D view. The created clipping box will be scaled so that it covers roughly two thirds of the screen.
Attached to a selected surface - Select this option from the drop down menu of the Create a new clipping box button in the 3D view toolbar , and then select three points in the view in order to determine a surface. A clipping box will then be created with one of its faces being coplanar to the surface defined by the three picked points. The clipping box will be scaled in such a way as it exactly encloses the picked points.
Aligned to a limited or unlimited plane object – Select New Aligned Clipping Box in the context menu of a plane object to align a clipping box to the object:
3.1 - Unlimited plane: The new clipping box will be created as a unit cube centered on the reference point of the plane. Its faces will be parallel to the selected plane.
3.2 - Limited plane: The new clipping box will tightly enclose the boundary polygon of the limited plane.
The created clipping boxes are saved to the workspace for later use and will be added to the folder ClippingBoxes in the structure view.
Once created, you can reposition and resize the clipping box.
1-Once created, the rotation point of the view will be set to the center of the clipping box.
2-Creating clipping boxes does not delete any points from the point cloud. The points outside or within the clipping box are simply hidden and may be displayed again at any time.
