Manual Rotation and Translation
Manual rotation and translation tool is used to translate and rotate a single point cloud file. Rotate and translate the point cloud file in the user-interface, and the software will automatically calculate the transform matrix. After applying this transformation, the transformed result will be generated.
Note: To activate this function, there are at least one window other than profile window, and at least one point cloud file being opened in the software.
Create a new window, and input the point cloud to be transformed and the reference point cloud (if there are any) in that window. Click the manual rotation and translation tool, and the following dialog window will popup.
In the popup window, select the point cloud to be transformed. If there is a reference point cloud, please specify it in the same window. And then the following table window will popup. For the detailed information of the tool listed in the window, please refer to Settings below.
If there is a reference point cloud, please match the center first.
In the table window, from left to right, each button is: open matrix, save matrix, start rotation and translation transformation, match data center, pause, resume to initial state, display transformation matrix, data transformation.
