Export ReCap

Post by AdamLS » Wed Mar 06, 2019 8:47 pm

I've been working on exporting an LC project to a ReCap project file for the past seven hours. For the past hour the progress bar has shown it is finished but it has continued to add another 5GB or so into the support folder. Wondering if there's a way to know when this will actually be finished?

Yes finally, thanks. It said "finished" at 54 GB, then ran another two hours and totalled 61 GB.

so now you have a ReCap project built on structured point cloud (zfs file) with bubble view.
if you only need to use it to work in autodesk software you may want to have a lighter recap project. in this case better to use unstructured point cloud, lose bubble view but much smaller recap folder.

I don't see an option to export any different version of ReCap? I've tried e57 and las, but both export a file for each scan. The only unstructured option I see is PTS.

Edit: Nevermind, found the export unified option in ReCap. Thanks for the tip! In the past I did all of those types of edits in Cyclone, so never learned much about ReCap except import and use it in Civil3D or Revit

Although, when I tried to export the unified/unstructured from ReCap my support folder more than doubled in size?

My experience:

- save the regestration to every scan-station
- DONT export to recap-format
- instead: open Recap and IMPORT the ZFS

ZF Support told me that this is the best way, too.

I export scans as .PTX and index them in recap. works fine every time with bubble view and everything.

There is a way of reducing the point loud size without losing the bubble views in Recap

Essentially you need to unify the cloud and save it.
Open the project that contains the bubble views, select all the point cloud data and delete it.
Then import the unified dataset that was previously exported.

Recap will still have the bubble views, but non of the cloud
