_PointCloud command might be further improved in V6. Using the option
_Add will destroy pointclouds having colors or normals or both, only points are added. I guess this is a bug.
ATM i am working with large pointclouds where noisy points need to be removed manually. In comparison to V5 subobject (cloud points) selection is much faster using CTRL + SHIFT, even deleting cloud points works almost instantly which i really really like, however, deleting cloud points that way, destroys color and normal information of the whole pointcloud.
One handy V6 feature would be to select cloud points with
_SelBrush, maybe while CTRL + SHIFT is pressed. I´ve found that i can use
_SelBrush when Rhino is in the prompt for cloud point removal using
_PointCloud _Remove, but this creates the cloud points as point objects and is extremely slow, it freezes V6 for minutes with pointclouds having around 500K points and having brush selected around 10K points.
Maybe an additional option “_DeletePoints” could be added to the
_PointCloud command ? Also the
_Remove option would be more handy if it allows to choose if the result is a new pointcloud instead of regular point objects.
