Pix4DSSurvey error - not enough points found for stockpile

When trying to use the detect stock pile feature, I am getting “not enough points found for stockpile”. I am using the same point cloud generated from Pix4DMapper.

Hi Christopher,
I believe you will want to adjust the parameters for the stockpile detection tool. For example, you might need to look at the minimum slope and the radius. The article below discusses this in more detail.

Hello Mike. Yes, we tried adjusting the parameters. However, we didn’t run the terrain classification tool prior. Once we did that, the stockpile detection tool worked better. What is missing from Pix4DSurvey is the clipping box tool from Pix4DMapper.

Hi @Christopher_Haddad.

Thank you for your reply. I’m happy to hear that after the terrain classification, the stockpile detection performed better.

Depending what you need to achieve, you can use the selection tool in order to get similar results as PIX4Dmapper’s clipping box.

  1. Switch from perspective to orthographic view by pressing the 5 key.

  2. Move the view to your area of interest.

  3. Use the Rectangle selection (press D) and select the part you are interested into.

  4. Use the Invert selection tool (Ctrl+Shift+I)

  5. Delete the selected part (Delete key).

  6. Press 6 to return in Perspective view and inspect the result.

Please let me know if this helps you or if you need further support.
