That's definitely a great workaround, thanks for the tip! Fingers still crossed it's possible without a workaround though :)

No, but the 'filter by selection' mesh tool might be a good workaround?

Sounds like the Tools -> Mesh -> Filter by selection tool might help here.

You make a selection, then apply the filter, and can then reorient the view to make a further selection and filter and repeat as necessary. Then make your measurements unimpeded and reset the filter when you want to see the full model again.
General / Selection Mode
« Last post by KBL on September 27, 2020, 11:09:05 PM »
Is anyone aware of a way to make it so that a selection does not "shoot through" the model? An example of this is Blender's "Limit selection to visible" mode.
Python and Java API / Change vertical CS

Hello all,

I want to be able to export a DEM in the local EPSG and in EPSG:4326 but with the same heights. Is it possible to create a projection like EPSG:4326 but where I set the vertical EPSG to the one used in the local EPSG?

Many thanks
General / Trouble aligning chunks with cameras
« Last post by William Ringle on September 27, 2020, 05:27:54 PM »
Because of the number of cameras (c. 1000) and the limited capacity of my computer, I am building a model of a stone building in chunks. I have successfully aligned chunks of several portions of the structure using camera positions, however I am having difficulty aligning one room interior. To connect the room with the exterior, I included 14 photos from the exterior around the doorway to the room in the room chunk. Alignment etc. went fine, all aligned properly. However, when I then attempt to align this chunk using cameras, nothing happens.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong? Why might the align fail technically?
Bug Reports / Re: "Analyzing mesh..." takes very long

Hello wojtek,

You can check the pre-release version of 1.6.5 (build 11175) available by the links below:

The problem with the long time for the mesh analysis should be fixed now.

Hello Alexey,

I've tested this on a few of the problematic projects and it does work properly now. Thanks for getting this fixed!

Thanks Arie,

It's been very helpful. I wasn't aware of the depth maps reconstruction at all. I am reprocessing some older jobs to see what's the difference now. Depth maps are giving nicer results.

So the UAV problem is solved. I just aligned with "high" and adaptive camera fitting model and it's all good now.


I still have problems with my lumix fz300. Same error margin of 20 to 30 cm with some scans. I disabled the OIS but that doesn't seem to be the problem.

All pictures are taken with the same focal so I don't understand what's going on...
