Opening Scan Data

  1. Click Open and select one of the following types of scan data files in Files of type:
    • Mesh Files (*.3ds; *.obj; *.stl; *.wrl; *.ply; *.ply2)
    • PointCloud Files (*.xyz; *.txt; *.asc; *.vda; *.igs; *.ibl)
    ScanTo3D automatically imports textures from 3D Studio .3ds, .obj, and .wrl files provided the textures are clearly linked to the mesh file. Otherwise, the mesh imports with no textures. You can specify the location of texture files in the Import Options dialog box.
  2. Browse to a file for File name.
  3. Click Options, set the import options, then click OK.
  4. Click Open.
