Estimating the areas and volumes

Unleash live lets you measure stockpile volumes and areas.

Areas can be measured by creating a polygon surface in the point cloud view.

  • Go to your model library
  • Select the point cloud
  • Select the 'Area Measurement' icon on the top right menu or the left menu
  • Select at least 3 points on the point cloud surface
  • You can then view the resulting area and point coordinates 
  • The detailed values can be exported to JSON or DXF files

Volumes can be measured by creating a Volume object from the side menu.

  • Go to your model library
  • Select the point cloud
  • Select the 'Smart Volume' icon on the top right menu or the left menu (below)
  • Select at least 3 points on the cloud surface, and make sure the point cloud does not include any outlier points which may distort the volume estimation
  • You can review the resulting cubic ft or meters directly on the point cloud. The smart volume measurement casts a blanket over all the points within the polygon selection
  • To mark the vertices more accurately, on the point cloud, select the desired point and move it with the mouse
  • The detailed values can be exported to JSON or DXF files
