Post by laser_navis_123 »

hello all,

I have a new project .rcs (55) scan files and a all together model (.rcp) file to open up in Autodesk Recap pro.

I am just curious to know how to import the scan files into E3D, please help.


Thank you and have a nice day.!

AVEVA software usually use LFM to handle the point cloud. As far as I remember (we have used it a couple time few years ago) you`d need to index your point cloud to .zfc
Let me know if you need any assistance.

You need the LFM software license, without it you can`t do the conversion.

To access point cloud data within AVEVA E3D or PDMS a service provider will need to supply a LFD dataset to the AVEVA user. A LFD dataset is generated using the AVEVA Point Cloud Manager (previously known as LFM Server), this can load an exhaustive list of scan, las and e57 files.
Running the generate action will spatial index the scans as a point cloud and generate the LFD dataset.

The E3D users does not require Point Cloud Manager licenses to access the LFD dataset as this is managed by the E3D software. As E3D is a modelling and drawing product the user can render, clash measure and fit to the point cloud. Actions such as loading scan data and generating point cloud dataset are considered back office actions and are covered by the AVEVA Point cloud software only.

E3D users can access point cloud data on the local network and via AVEVA Connect in which case the point cloud data is managed in the cloud, for more information on this I recommend speaking directly with AVEVA.
