Exporting an RGB textured Mesh

Post by Terrence_SA » Mon Jul 09, 2018 4:06 pm

I am trying to export Mesh Surfaces created in RiScan Pro into Microstation.

The surfaces come in fine - but without the coloured Texture.
I have tried all the various formats and combinations - including using MeshLab and Cloudcompare as intermediaries.

I am now at my wits end and considering using paint to color in the mesh manually :lol:

My feelings are that the MTL file exported with the OBJ export format is not exporting the RGB colour.
I had some luck with the PLY format into Cloudcompare - but couldnt get any further after that step (PLY also seems to downgrade the mesh somewhat into pretty ugly blocks)

Has anybody had any luck with getting colored mesh surfaces out of RiScan Pro?
