Global Mapper v25.0

Crop a mesh (obj format)

scr Global Mapper UserTrusted User
I have a mesh in the obj format (exported from Pix4D). I would like to crop that mesh with the help of a area drawn with the editor tool.

Unfortunately I can't find a way to do it.

Does anyone have an idea how to do it?

Thanks, Rainer

    Hi Rainer,

    Unfortunately, we don't have a way to do that in Global Mapper  currently, so I've added a new feature request (#26496), that would implement this functionality. As usual, it needs to be added to our current lit of things to do and prioritized, so I can't say when it might be implemented, but we'll get back to you here when it's completed.

    Best regards,

    OK. - Yes this would help me a lot. 

    Unfortunately I can't find a tool to do it without loosing the surface material (picture).

    Thanks Jeff

    I just tried Pixels to Point to create a mesh from pictures.
    I was hoping that I could edit the generated point cloud (removing objects) and than create a mesh again to have the surface from the pictures.
    But as Pix4D - you can't do that.
