This section discusses how to start the software after it has been installed successfully and begin performing the various tasks in the software environment.
Reference a Point Cloud
From the tree view hierarchy in the left pane, right-click the Plant icon, and then select New Point Cloud Model Reference.
In the Point Cloud Model Reference dialog box, select the required point cloud vendor you want to reference, and click Register.
For more information, refer to Using Reference Models > Point Cloud Model Reference > Reference a Point Cloud topic in the Project Management User's Guide.
When defining the workspace, the Point Cloud Graphics and Point Cloud project names appear on the New Filter Properties dialog box on the System tab and Point Cloud tab respectively. When the point cloud is defined, it appears in Smart 3D on the Workspace Explorer view.
You can use the CloudWorx features using the CloudWorx menu in Smart 3D. Most CloudWorx commands require that a CloudWorx project be open. Otherwise, you should:
Use Configure Databases in Project Management to configure databases.
Add a filter using Define Workspace. The filter should have Point Cloud Graphics and Point Cloud project name selected. The software loads the point cloud model that is being selected in Project Management.
You need to open a Smart 3D session file first. The session file should have a filter containing Point Cloud Graphics and Point Cloud project names displayed.
Refer to the Project Management User's Guide to know how to configure the databases and import the model space data.
