How to use 3rd party normal vectors

Modified on Tue, 23 Jan at 6:41 PM

NUBIGON can calculate normal vectors for your point clouds while opening them. But if your ASCII file (XYZ, PTS, TXT) already contains normal vectors, NUBIGON can also read this information. 

Step 1: File > Open point cloud(s) and specify normal channels

When opening point clouds with normal vectors, specify the channels containing the normal information in the ASCII file dialogue.

Step 2: Configure octree generation settings

Uncheck Compute normals in the Octree Generation Settings dialogue to avoid an override and press OK to generate the octree.
