Previously when I used Rhino 5, I used the ‘Point Deviation’ command with a point cloud and a surface, and only the colored points/display hairs that were on the front side of the surface were displayed, and the points/display hairs behind the surface were not displayed. This was an extremely useful display option, as it allowed me to fit a surface to a point cloud, without interfering with the point cloud (resulting in a plane perfectly placed at the outer position).
With Rhino 6 however, the colored points/display hairs that are both in the front of the plane and behind the plane are displayed. This makes placing the plane at the closest outer position of the point cloud very difficult. You can see in the attached image that all points/display hairs are shown – the plane is placed about midway through the point cloud, so it is difficult to decipher how far the plane is from one side of the point cloud. (I understand you can figure this out by going in a plan view parallel to the plane, however working in an isometric view is much quicker and efficient). I am hoping to have ONLY the points in FRONT of the plane displayed.
Hope someone can help. Thanks!
