Hey Faro, where is the OBJ import? Textures please its 2019

Hey Faro, where is the OBJ import?

I'm too lazy to post an image, but its in the manual for three versions now. It says you can do it. The mysterious page 153 with the details.

Anybody have any luck importing textures in any way?

There is something in the manual too about 24 bit images but nothing worked for me.

Anyone have any luck?

I don't know if this obj import works but what i can say that the manual is crap. I've learned everything from youtube videos and this forum.

Do you mean this section of the manual?

I just tested the OBJ import in the latest SCENE 2019.1 release and it works for me like expected. I can just drop OBJ files in the structure view or do Import -> Import Objects in the new UI.

Tested four different OBJ files and all worked. A textured one exported from SCENE itself, a textured one written with Meshlab, a textured example from the internet (http://paulbourke.net/dataformats/obj/minobj.html) and another untextured example from the internet.

It works with JPEG textures or 24/32 bit PNG textures. VR should even support partially transparent textures.

Can you share an example file that does not work? Please keep in mind that textured OBJ files are actually always three files, the OBJ itself, a material (MTL) file and the image with the texture.

Hello everyone

I am looking to do the following, I have a CAD model that is done around a pointcloud, I wanted to bring both into Faro Scene and eventually into VR. The CAD model is done in Cadworx. is there a way to get both the CAD and the Pointcloud into VR, I love the VR produced by Faro Scene but Faro no longer sells the VR app.

At the moment you can import models into SCENE or As-Built Modeler via OBJ or VRML. See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF6_NwYjNKk

The VR viewing is integrated directly in the software so you don't need a seperate app to do this.

We are also working on some improved workflows. For more info I would appreciate to contact me via mail: [email protected]
