Decrease E57 file size

Post by Ioannis »

I have exported a pointcloud of a building from cyclone and i have not use unify command to decrease the file size, unfortunately the project has been deleted so i have only the E57 file that is 36 Gb.
How can i decrease the file size in order to work with it properly for floor plans?

Cloud compare > subsample may work, depending on needs.

36GB is a smallish project. Maybe just re-import it to Cyclone and do whatever you wanted to then?

Can ingest to Recap (including decimate on ingest), export unified/decimated Recap and/or E57.

Firstly, you should always double back up your raw data for exactly this scenario. Is the job still on the scanner, if so, I would download it and store it. I wouldn't decimate the point cloud, particularly if you need to extract data from it and it is an ornate building etc. If it is all coordinated, just segment up the point cloud into quarters and bring it in that way but like some else mentioned, 36Gb isn't a particularly big cloud.

What Software are you using to create the floor plans?
