Creating Mesh from LiDAR Point Cloud
« on: June 29, 2023, 02:29:12 AM »
I'm having problems trying to create a mesh from a LiDAR point cloud. The point cloud turned out great and is far better than any photogrammetry could create of these thin objects in the crane. When I create a mesh from this it isn't using majority of the points. What can I do to solve this? I've tried all 3 interpolation options.

Hello johnnokomis,

Please specify, what Metashape version you are using and what source option is selected in Build Mesh dialog?

Also specify, what file format is used to import the point cloud? Looking on the screenshot of the point cloud it seems to me, that the problem is related to the incorrect orientation of the point normals in quite a lot of areas.
