Need to change scale of imported .xyz file in RealWorks?

Post by Kelasa »

I scanned a building, using a BLK 360 and a Matterport (to capture the inside of a large crawl space). In Realworks I have registered the BLK 360 9.e57) scans together. I imported the Matterport/Matterpak data as an .xyz (ASCII)file. The Matterport pointcloud has come in really small compared to the BLK scans.

Is there a way to change the scale of an .xyz file, so it could be resized to match the size of the pointclouds in my RealWorks project?

I appreciate your help. Thank you for your time.

Is it a simple mm / metres problem ?
Can you change the Matterport export to metres ?

I was just about to suggest the same thing, you can also set/change units when importing the ascii file to TRW.

Thank you both!

I got it. I was able to change the units from mm to feet, to solve the size issue.

I appreciate your guys' help!
