What can I do to make my point clouds and surface models look better?
There several visualization techniques that will greatly improve model appearance. Since there is no area or volume associated with a given point, it is very important to set the Cloud Point Size button and algorithm appropriately for your data. This will make the individual points larger or smaller. For the surface models, the overall lighting is very important. Click the Set Lighting button on the tool bar and configure the lighting to desired intensity and angle. More oblique angles will increase the shadows and relief appearance while less angle will increase overall brightness.
