Importing data captured with Pix4D into FARO Scene

Post by Sjsmith » Fri Jun 16, 2017 2:48 pm

I'm new to the group an am sure this topic has been covered. Is there a method to import pix 4D point data into Scene, and align the imported data.

I have not worked with Pix4D, but if you are trying to import a point cloud, Scene allows the import of .ptx, .pts, .xyz and e57 files. These will import, and you will be able to do registration. I've only used the older version of Scene (5.4), and in this version you need to jump through some hoops before you can register faro scans with external point clouds.

as of 6.2.4.30, not PTS, maybe you meant PTZ.
