Pointools & PointCAB .FLS to .POD

Post by boxel0 » Mon Jul 14, 2014 6:06 pm

I am basically trying to import about 25 scans into Pointools so i can create a rendered video.

I have tried converting my .fls files within FARO Scene 5.3 to .POD but i throws up an error 18

I have saved off the .fls files into a separate folder and added them to PointCAD which brings up an error about it not finding any points?

I have also tried just opening the .fls files directly into Pointools but it doesnt seem to do anything.

Maybe im missing a step with FARO Scene 5.3, i have registered them and created a point cloud file

Please help

Hi Lewis,

It might be best to export the data as a .PTX file and index it that way.

I did try that once, but maybe I will try again. Should I try and convert them with pointcab or straight into pointools?

No just export from Scene as .PTX and use the POD creator to convert the data.
