large pointcloud

Post by sss » Fri May 19, 2017 3:55 pm

i have a job in cyclone with around 8 scans on a high quality, resulting in lots of overlapping data, is there a way to filter this data at say 1mm to reduce the size of the export file?

i tried unifiying the model but when i try to export an .E57 it says no pointcloud data?

thanks in advance

You can unify (try 3-6mm) and export in PTS instead if needed: where is the data going?

I'd say 8 scans on high-resolution is quite a small job to be fair.

You can reduce each ScanWorld's point cloud without unifying the data. This will then allow you to export the structured data as an e57. :ugeek:

Let me if you would like a remote login sesssion to show you how? ;)

with 8 scans, you're better off just individually reducing each one and then exporting from the registered modelspace

Where is the data going, such that you need an E57 file, specifically?
