Volumes are easily calculated in the Cyclone software. The three different volume calculations available are Enclosed Modeled Objects, TIN to a Plane, and TIN to TIN.

User Coordinate Systems (UCS)

The UCS tools are important for manipulating the point cloud. UCS can be Set to Up Direction, Set to an Object, Set from Points, Set to X, Y, Z Axes.

Unify vs. Merge

The Unify and Merge commands combine points into one cloud to improve performance of large point clouds. The point cloud may be decimated through the Unify command. Merge combines points but allows the individual clouds to be turned on and off.

ScanWorld Explorer

ScanWorld Explorer is a menu where you can re-load the point cloud after you have modeled, erased, or segmented the cloud. Users can colorize scans position by separate colors.

Removing Noise

Removing Noise is an easy way to remove tons of noise on the surface of a point cloud from traffic or other interference.

Registration Techniques

This section covers other registration techniques other than targets and point clouds to register scans together. It covers techniques such as creating calculated vertexes between planes, and using modeled objects such as pipes and patches.
