CloudWorx includes a set of tools to help define the User Coordinate System (UCS) and Workplane. These tools help the user to have better control over the Limit Box and Slice features and provide the ability to easily orientate the point cloud to the screen.


These tools use the vertical (walls) and horizontal (floor) point cloud features or individual points to change the UCS and set the Workplane to the UCS.

Refer to the Workplane page for more details.


These tools allow users to orientate the UCS to the plan or elevation view.

Refer to the Views page for more details.
