Use case: I’m using some point cloud scans of buildings in VR Sketch and the orientation of their walls is about 20 degrees off the default red axis. With the point cloud tool, I’d like to “hide” the points of certain walls, or cut sections at specific angles. Because the point cloud tool selection box is always oriented to the global axes within the program, this becomes prohibitively difficult.
It’d be great to have a menu option to “set orientation of selection box” just for the point cloud tool. An easier to implement solution might be to have the selection box orient itself to the user-defined axis, which will usually be set parallel to building walls anyway.
I just thought of something else: An option to “unhide” specific points in the cloud. You could click that menu option, then VR Sketch would display only the hidden points, then you could use a selection box to pick the ones you want to bring back into the model. This would be very useful for working with large clouds where you want different things hidden at different times. Having to “unhide all” and then re-hide everything you didn’t want just to, say, get a single tree back, is a bit cumbersome.
Thanks as always. Loving VR Sketch more every day.
