You are here: Point Cloud > PointCloudMerger


Merges component values from one point cloud to another. Features that contain the desired components are connected through the Supplier port, and the features that will receive the components are connected through the Requestor port.

Requestor points are joined to Supplier points when the components specified in the Join On parameter ALL have the same value for both the Requestor and Supplier.

When a Requestor finds a Supplier, the components from the Supplier are merged on to the Requestor. If the Requestor already had a component with the same name, the Conflict Resolution option may be used to control which value is preferred for the merged point cloud.

Each Requestor point cloud will be split into two parts: Points that found a Supplier (Merged) and points that did not find a Supplier (NotMerged).

Each Supplier point cloud will be split into three parts: Points that were found by at least one Requestor (Referenced), points that were not found by any Requestor (Unreferenced), and duplicate points (DuplicateSupplier).

If you want to combine or accumulate point clouds together, as opposed to merging their components, you should use the PointCloudCombiner.
