Parents Comment
  • Hi Marc,

    It should be included as an advanced viewing/measurement tool.

    Being able to indicate a line or a box through an object and display a cross-section would be a valuable tool to be able to give a client.

    Some of our projects include comparisons between modelled and observed (Point cloud) data and the ability to slice through any point of an object to view differences with an x-section would be very handy.
