3D Analysis: Visualization
All options regarding the visual representation of the scan images can be found in the Visualization Panel of the Right Sidebar as shown in figure 1. By clicking the button of the sidebar you can toggle the panel accordingly.
The toolbar of the Visualization Panel consists of the following four buttons:
Push this button to copy the Visualization settings from the current scan image into the clipboard.
Push this button to apply the Visualization settings from the clipboard to the current scan image.
Push this button to reset the Visualization settings of the current scan image to factory defaults (please refer to section Visualization Settings to define the defaults).
Push this button to refresh the current scan image by applying all Visualization settings.
The content of the Visualization Panel is categorized in three groups that will be described in the following subsections.
Check this option to enable the axes of the scan image, whereas each axis has a different color:
- Red = Length of the scan field (impulses)
- Green = Width of the scan field (scan lines)
Blue = Depth of the scan field
Check this option to enable the Bounding Box (cubic border) of the scan image.
Check this option to show all active bookmarks within the scan image.
The slider can be used to decrease (move slider left) or to increase (move slider right) the size of the displayed bookmark icons.
The slider is used to decrease (move slider left) or to increase (move slider right) the opacity of the crosshairs (3D cursor).
Check this option to enable the Depth-Plane (blue plane) of the crosshairs.
Check this option to enable an extra scan image plane that is on top of the scan image. Thus you can see the depth information in any perspective view as well as information from the top view at the same time.
Check this option to visualize the scan image in a high resolution. Uncheck the option to improve performance of the display instead.
Check this option to smooth the graphical data (suppresses hard edges). This option is available for certain render views only, otherwise disabled.
Check this option to visualize the scan image as wireframe, otherwise the scan image is displayed in solid mode.
Move the slider to the right to make the actual scan values visible as data points. This can be useful after applying modifiers that generate additional data points (e.g. Subdivision). The slider can be used to decrease (move slider left) or to increase (move slider right) the size of the data points.
Choose your prefered color schema from this list to visualize the scan image in different colors. Depending on the selected color schema certain anomalies and details may become visible.
Increase Anomaly Threshold
Push this button to bring more anomalies into view within the scan image. This might be helpful to see also hidden anomalies that are hidden by stronger ones.
Reduce Anomaly Threshold
Push this button to draw back anomalies from the scan image to focus the core of the large anomalies.
This slider regulates how many data values and corresponding colors are visible/hidden in the Volumetric render view.
Scan Field Overlay
This slider regulates the opacity of the Scan Field Overlay (image of the scan field) to visualize the surface of the actual scan area and to ease the localisation of potential anomalies. Pressing allows to set and change the scan field overlay image.
Soil Type Surface
This slider regulates the opacity of the surface texture of the selected Soil Type.
This number can be changed to adapt the scaling of the soil type texture. Normally you just keep this number as it is!
Soil Type Cross Section
This slider regulates the opacity of the cross section texture of the selected Soil Type.
