Realworks 11.3 fails to remove points from TZF scans

Post by mikajahkola »

I was not able to remove unwanted points from TZF scans in the latest version of TRW.
Removing points is a lengthy process in Realworks but once you learn it it works reliably, until now.

I registered an outdoor scene consisting of ca 30 scans, then I wanted to remove part of the points.
The workflow is like this:
In Registration mode, make sampled scans, sample by step, step size 1.
Then switch to Production mode. Select Project Cloud and segment out the sub-cloud you want to remove.
Select the segmented point cloud and click "Remove points from TZF Scans"
After the program is finished, (could take some time) , switch back to Registration mode.
Use Find tool to list all your sampled scans, delete them, and generate new sampled scans, spatial or stepwise sampling.
Now the removed parts should be gone from your scans.

In 11.3 "Remove points from TZF scans" produces an error message listingthe names of part of your TZF scans and complains that the scans cannot be modified, because the scans don't exist or they are read-only.

I repeated this with two separate projects, same result. This is serious. Hurry up Trimble to fix it.

---update:
I was not able to download an older version of TRW from Trimble website (!) but I found a previous download file on my computer.
Uninstalled TRW and installed version 11.2.2. I opened my problem project with this TRW 11.2.2 and I was able to remove points normally.
I think I will skip version 11.3 and wait for a new release.
