    Status: Open => Answered

Bruno Chareyre proposed the following answer:
I think everything is correct.

cloud porosity

It is _not_ set back to the original. 
The original is 0.7402048362033036
The final is 0.8019192426223386

The reason why the final is not your target is because by removing some
spheres the apparent porosity is increased (it is always calculated with
reference to the same total volume of the box).

Also note that switchScene() is not needed, although it maybe works.
What you need really is O.reset() I guess.

You seem to be on the right track. :)

I hope it helps
