Cyclone export .e57 structured point clouds as unstructured

Post by HDSilva »

Hello,
I have a problem exporting a structured point cloud from Cyclone to Recap.
I have some scans scanned the same way with photos and I want to export them to .e57 and then import them to recap.
When I import them into recap, only some of the scans are imported as structured (bubble view in recap), and the others are imported as unstructured (import only the cloudpoint). I.m puzzled with this, because each scan was measured the same way in the field.
Also, I made the exportation of the same scans as .PTX format and after imported this .PTX file into recap, I observed that all the scans were imported as a structured point clouds. The only problem is that it lost the RGB (imported as grey scale).
So I think the problem is in the Cyclone exportation into .e57 process, but I don't know where

Can anyone help me in this matter?

Thanks in advance,
Thomas Goodliffe

I have had this problem, I updated to the most recent version of recap and it has not happened since. Worth a go.

Hi,
try to open unstructured files (.e57) in to CloudComapre. If the file is structured you will be able to open in bubble view mode (click on the file in the tree and press "B" button on keyboard). These steps should help you locate the problem whether the file is badly exported or imported.
best,
Piotr

Thanks for all the support.
The issue was solved after installing the latest Cyclone version (2020.1)
