Point cloud to Catia v5- how?

Post by EPK3D »

Hello Everyone!

My customer would like to use point cloud in Catia V5 in huge project (power plant). Is it possible?
I read about two file formats for Catia V5 - .igs and .pts ( https://laserscanningforum.com/forum/vi ... ilit=CATIA ).
How can I get it IGES format from point cloud? We use ZF Laser Control and it is not export the format (.igs).
Will it be in RGB or BW point cloud?
How big point clouds can I import to Catia V5?
Does anyone have experience in this topic?

I will be grateful for any information.

I have only seen videos of 10m cubes of laser data being accessed in CATIA, it would be interesting to seen if there has been any process on handling more data.
