Lidar data import method


Recommended Posts

What would be the best method to import tree lidar data for shading? Is there an easier way to create the shading objects from a CAD file or data file? It seems very difficult to get an accurate shading scene if you have multiple trees or objects at various heights.

Dear Hrira,

Please avoid adding too many details to the 3D scene as it makes the simulation more complex and increases the calculation time.

For trees, you can easily incorporate a template that we provide into the 3D scene in PVsyst.

Here, I'll demonstrate how to do it:

In 3D scene, click on : 

- Create
- Elementary shading object
- And then select Tree in shape type

Then you can modify the dimensions of the tree as you desire. Additionally, after adding it to your 3D scene, you can copy and paste it as many times as needed.

If you require further assistance with this topic, please feel free to reach out to me.
