    Hi!

    You need to use the Filtering Tool in Reconstruction.

    Otherwise, Search and/or FAQ are your friends!  ;-)

    I realized I was too late!  :D

    Anyway, thanks for elaborating.

    By "clipping box" you mean the reconstruction region, right?

    No the clipping box.

    It's an hidden option: click on the little Arrow poiting to the bottom at the very top of RC -> "more commands" :)

    Ok, firstly thank you very much for pointing the menu out - I need to rummage around in that a bit.

    I don't think there is anything secret in there though. The clipping box is also available via the Scene ribbon (I remember now). Clipping is a display thing only, that means the rest of the geometry is still there. Not sure how it works with export though - did you try if it only exports the content of the clipping box?

    Ah, ok. That works as well with the reconstruction region. I think the clipping box is just a pimped up reconstruction region, which would explain why it also works. Can you confirm that it is gone in the exported file as well though?
