Orient point cloud to plane - project orientation

hi folks, rather then using a vector, sometimes there aren’t any items that are 100% perpendicular to an axis. however there are often times “planes” or “surfaces” 

I think it would be helpful to provide us with a tool that will allow us (users) to define a “plane” (similar to the area tool?) and then use that plane to project a vector to align the project to. 

 

Hi Cesar,

 

Yes indeed, at the moment this is not available in our software. But, have you tried to add constraints as if it would be a plane (see my screenshot below)
