Is there a way to remove vehicles from my point cloud?

Yes, you can use the Easy Surface Builder to trim away unwanted points from your point cloud. The technique for doing this was introduced in this post: https://www.vcrashusa.com/kb-vc-article71

Here we see a blue SUV in our scene. Let’s remove these points from our point cloud.


Using the Easy Surface Builder, we carefully enclose the vehicle volume with the bounding box. Enable “remove points” and press “create”, as shown in the image below.


Now you’ll see the mesh object in the left-side control panel. Simply delete the mesh and you’re done.

Using the technique shown in https://www.vcrashusa.com/kb-vc-article62, we can also conceal the image of the SUV displayed on the road surface.
