Below is a step-by-step workflow to display point clouds and referenced CAD files in the same scene.
By referenced, we mean that the CAD drawing and point cloud are in the same coordinate system.
- Open point cloud. Choose Origin as the Offset parameter value. This will prevent GPU artifacts if the point cloud has large coordinates.
- NUBIGON’s default working units are meters. Change the unit of your drawing to meters in third-party software before importing it into NUBIGON. Import your CAD file by choosing the reference point cloud from the Offset dropdown menu.
TIP: Verify that the box Import as reference is checked. Otherwise, rendering might slow down for large drawing files.
