I am cutting sections through point clouds to create plan and elevation drawings. When I cut thin sections I get nice crisp detail on the point cloud where it is sliced, but of course I can only see what is in the slice. If I cut thicker sections I can see more but my slice is mushy due to out of plumb walls etc. Ideally I would like to cut a thin slice and move it up and down as I create my line work but the only way I've found to move my section is to select it and use the move tool to reposition it. When I do that the line work I've drawn is left at the location of the section at each move. Is there a way to keep the line work with the section as I move it? Alternatively, is there a way to change the thickness of the section while you are working in it so that you can get a clean cut through the walls with a thin section, but then open up the view to see a wider view that includes more details?
I'm working in Context Capture Editor Connect update 2.
Hi, in CCE, you can go to Analyse tab and chose "quick section" tool or "section". after you have differents options as shown in the picture bilow :
Yes, I've been in that tool, but I can't find the way to change the thickness of the section once I've created it. Is there a way to do that? Or is there a way to move the section and keep drawing on the same plane? Thanks.
ho yes sorry, if you select the section, you go to properties, and you will have the possibility to change the thickness, width, ...
and after you can go to extract tab, reality model, model by section, and you will find tools to move back, forward the section
but the drawing will follow the section, so after, if you want to have the drawings on the same plane, you will have to select all the drawings after, and move them on the plane you chose.
Fabrice, you've made my day! Thank you very much. One last question. How do you move them to the same plane?
Hi Scott, i didn't find the tool in the ribbon, but you can find it easily with the search toolbox. the name is : move to contact
That's fantastic. Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
