You can proceed to Step 1 once you've inserted the point cloud into the drawing.
Step 1: Select the point cloud by clicking on it.
Step 2: Select Top View from Selection Plane.
Step 3: Change point cloud orientation with 3D Navigation Block.
Step 4: Click on Selection Plane.
Make sure Live Section is on.
Step 5: Create slice using blue arrows.
Step 6: Return orientation to Top View using the 3D Navigation Block.
Step 7: Start tracing.
Congratulations! You're ready to work with laser scanning data.
