Restoring deleted scan points

Post by ST79lsf »

Hi All

Apologies if this has already been covered, although I can't find any info on this. When trimming data I have inadvertently deleted information that I require, then saved it and compacted the project. :roll:

Is there any way of replacing the scan data without deleting them and reimporting the raw scans and re-registering them?

Currently using Scene 2023.1.0

Many Thanks

Classic mistake ;) I requested in the past that Faro include some functionality to restore the raw scans, still not implemented though.

In the meantime you can do this: go to the project folder/Revisions, and identify in which revision your scan is (search in the "Scans" folders). Then simply copy/replace your raw fls scan. Then reprocess, make sure to uncheck "Skip fully processed scans", as Scene still thinks it has the already processed scan.

You will still have to clean the scan again of course, but no re-registration is needed.

It has just occured to me that Scene will simply take the latest available FLS in all the revisions, so there's no need to identify in which revision your scan is. You can just put the raw scan in the second to last revision (if you haven't closed the project. The last one otherwise).
