Establishes a connection to an existing ModelSpace View or to a JetStream project. After establishing the connection, the software loads the contained point clouds and displays the data in the Smart 3D workspace. The result is a CloudWorx project.

You can save this data to a session file so you do not need to import it again.

Point Cloud Source

Specifies the type of point cloud data that you are importing.

  • ModelSpace View

Select this option to load the Cyclone ModelSpace View as point cloud data. For more information, see Import ModelSpace View data.

  • JetStream

Select this option to load the JetStream project as point cloud data. For more information, see Import JetStream data.

Point Source Details

Specify the required point source information as needed.

Distance Units

By default, Meters is selected as units.

  • When you load point cloud data using JetStream, the point cloud rendering performance has been increased for better visualization, faster loading, and higher density of points.

  • When compared to Cyclone, JetStream performs two times faster when using the clipping commands and ten times faster when doing the view manipulation.

The diagram below shows the recommended workflow for importing the point cloud data to Smart 3D.
