Clip Point Clouds by 2 Points of Rectangle

Ribbon: Point Clouds – Clip and Section – Clip > Clip By 2 Points
Menu: Point Clouds – Clip > By Orthogonal Rectangle
Toolbar: Point Clouds > By Orthogonal Rectangle
Command line: NPC_CLIP_RECT

Create clip boundary by two opposite points of rectangle. Boundary is perpendicular to the view plane. Its sides are orthogonal to sides of the viewport. The cloud is clipped perpendicular to the plane of the viewport in the view direction.
A cloud can be clipped in one viewport (source), with the result displayed in another viewport (target), specified by the user. When the clip result is displayed in the target viewport, the same view will be set that was in the original viewport during clipping operation.

Command options:

Enter first point: Specify the first diagonal point of clip boundary.
Enter opposite corner: Specify the second diagonal point of clip boundary.
Select view: Specify needed view to display the clip. This request is displayed if there are several viewports in the model space.

Command clip only mapping of point cloud in the target view, the object cloud itself remains unchanged. The cloud remains unchanged in the rest of viewports.
