The Job Editor has the same structure for all three SpaceWarp tools. The individual categories are explained in more detail in this tutorial-chapter, using the example of the curved section.
The section parameters can be adjusted in the Job Editor. The control points (i.e. the points that have been set to define the section) and the length of the section are automatically computed and given in the Section Parameters. In addition, the intersection area can be defined numerically here.
The “Clipping” defines the used area of the point cloud to created the Section. It can either be adjusted graphically in the Standard Views, or its values can be changed in the clipping box. The red dotted line in the center of the section represents the projection surface. By default, the upper and lower bounds are set to a distance of 0.5 m. The values can be changed accordingly, in order to narrow the relevant area:
The viewing direction of the section is indicated by the red arrow in the marked area. This can be reversed in the Section Parameters.

The settings for image resolution, reflectivity, color and scan radius can be adjusted in the Processing Parameters. These settings are already known from other PointCab tools.
Using a color scale, the deviations from the projection plane are displayed in color in the PDF document.
On the right side of the color map is an arrow-button, with which a drop-down menu can be opened.
Options of the color map
In this drop-down menu, you can set a discrete flow (hard gradient):
The gaps between the colors can be set manually by moving the colored arrows. The colors can be adjusted individually. With a double click on the single arrows, a color palette appears:
Set colors with a double click on the color arrows
Fluous color arrows can be removed with the left mouse click.
The project name, the acquisition date, acquisition team, as well as additional annotations can be typed in the PDF Settings. The PDF report can be personalized by importing the company logo as well.
The scan positions that shall be used in the calculation can be easily and quickly chosen. There is the possibility to activate or deactivate entire clusters or individual scans.
Specify the scan positions
In the CAD output options, the export unit, background color, image format, and projection of orthophotos can be customized.
Options of the CAD output files
In the File options the location of the PDF report and the created orthophotos can be changed, as well as the output format of the orthophotos. The DWG, DXF and DAE files are available as export formats.
