The Registration and Alignment commands are both located under the Alignment tab inside the application.
Registration is the process of finding common areas of curvature and orienting the overlapping portions of the scans together. Typically 10% of overlap is required to successfully register scans together.
Alignment moves one object into alignment with another object so that they both share the same coordinate system. Alignment orients two objects by pairing corresponding data. The data may be curvature of the parts, Features (for example, cylinders, circles, planes, etc.), or XYZ coordinates. Typically 90% of common data is required to successfully align objects together.
