  5. Select the workspace to create a Sphere copy of the HoloBuilder project in, that will synchronize automatically.

  6. Select your Point Cloud from the panel on the right.
    Make sure to select the correct floor plan on the left.

  7. Align the Point Cloud using 2 points.

    Note:

    This does not change the Point Cloud scaling, this 2 - point alignment method scales the floor plan t the point cloud.

  8. Set the height of the Point Cloud relative to the floor plan.
