Removing Noise From Point Clouds or Meshes

You can remove noise using the Noise Removal PropertyManager. Noise is defined as either points that are outside the average distribution, or separate mesh patches that are small in area.

To remove noise from point clouds or meshes:

  1. Under Remove Noise, move the slider to the right to increase the distance between points or the patch area.
    The PropertyManager reports the original and final size while the model updates dynamically.
  2. Observe the preview and adjust the noise as necessary.
  3. Click PM_next.gif.
