You are here: Point Cloud > PointCloudFilter


Filters a point-cloud feature into one or more parts, output via separate ports, based on evaluating expressions.

One point cloud will be output for each expression, containing all the points that matched that expression (that is, the expression resulted in a non-zero value).

Each point will only be filtered into a single point cloud. For example, if a point matches both the first and second expression, the point will only be placed in the point cloud for the first expression. An additional point cloud will be output that contains all the points that did not match any expression.

Note: Empty point clouds will not be output.
