V6 pointcloud display issue

I keep encountering a display issue with point clouds in Rhino 6. If I try to setup a view that is perfectly horizontal and looking along the X or Y axis the density of the point cloud gets destroyed. If you adjust the view so that its slightly rotated about the Z axis it looks fine. Its also fine if you use a top or bottom view.

This image was captured looking in the x direction:

And this 1 rotated about Z by 45 degrees:

The actual data is fine if I spin around and look from other locations or different directions as demonstrated above. Its also fine in other software. I’m using Rhino 6 version 6.3.18090.471

I haven’t seen this effect before. Is there a model you can share with me to try and repeat the bug?

Steve, I have some data and test commands I can share that demonstrate the issue but don’t want to post it publicly. How can I share it just with you?

I’m assuming the files are big. You can use https://www.rhino3d.com/upload for this and have steve@mcneel.com as who to send the files to.


I’ve just uploaded the file for you. Its not too big as I cut out a fairly small area of the cloud.

I did get your file thanks. I’m heading out on vacation tomorrow so may not have an answer for you right away.

No worries Steve.

Steve (or anyone else at McNeel), have you had chance to look at this?

Any update on this issue?

Always good to @-mention, like so: @stevebaer
