Michael Cone explains the concept behind the DCP (Diameter Cut Plane) feature and demonstrates how it works. This is a new innovation added in version 2.6.

This video shows what you can do with the DCP (Diameter Cut Plane) feature added in version 2.6. With DCP, even if the laser stripe is crosses multiple straights at the same time, it finds and keeps the closest one - on-the-fly. It even filters out non-diameter objects that are behind the top diameter.
