Export Point Data
Note: Export Point Data is a Pro feature.
Follow the steps below to define the data you want to export, the type of export file you want, and to start the export process.
 
 Data Type
Select Point Data.
 
 Define Area
In this step you define the part of the project that you want to export. This can be either the entire scan project, or a portion of it.
Figure 47 Entire project selected
Figure 48 Partial project selected
1. Define the x-axis of the area to export by clicking in the overview map to select two points. (After you select these points, a rectangle will appear with one side defined by the points. You can change the size and position of the rectangle in the next step.) You can change the position of the two points by clicking on the pencil icon () for each point.
2. Click a third time (on either side of the line defined by the first two points), to define the position and length of the y-axis (and thus the area of the rectangle). You can adjust the length with the pencil icon, or by entering a number directly in the y-axis field.
 
 Set Elevation Range
Define the top and the bottom of the volume that you want to export. By default, the height is very large. If you want to export everything in the area you defined above, you need not change the default. If you want to limit the export (for example, to only show a particular floor of a building) click the 3D button to open the 3D view, then click the pencil icon () for the top or bottom elevation and select a scan point in the 3D view. Note that you must click on a point, you cannot click on the sky. You can make further adjustments to the elevation by adjusting the numbers in the two input fields.
 
 Select Sources
Select the point sources for the export.
 
 Choose Export Format
Select the file format to which you want to export.
 
 Set Resolution
Select the point resolution to be used for the points. Smaller resolutions create larger files and require longer to export, but provide finer detail. Original is typically 1 mm.
Select Custom to enter a value between 1 mm and 100 mm.
 
 Enter Name
Enter the file name (without file extension) for the exported file. (Special characters are not allowed and will be replaced when the file is saved.)
Click OK to start the export. When the file is ready, you will receive an email with a link to download the file. You can also check the status in the Job Queue Page. The status of running jobs is shown with a progress bar:
Completed files can also be downloaded from the Job Queue page.
