CAD drawing Point Clouds Display Settings 11

Enabling this mode only affects the speed of displaying clouds and navigation in the workspace. This mode does not affect the speed of clouds processing by commands of stitching (registration), classification, etc. To speed up cloud processing operations, make it sparse with the Thinning the Point Cloud command, which reduces not the displayed, but the actual number of points in cloud. It is also possible to reduce the number of cloud points that get into the document during the import operation by checking the Spacing box and specifying the sequence number of imported points.
