looking for ALL file extensions output from Scene, version 5.0 to 2018.0/7.2

Post by SAttaya » Thu Nov 29, 2018 7:11 pm

I'm looking for a list of ALL file extensions for files created by SCENE starting with 5.0:

* FLS - scan files input and outputted (ordered) - 5.0 to present
* F3S - scan point clouds prior to 6.0 (or was it 7.0)
* FPC - scan point clouds starting with 6.0 (or was it 7.0) (was FPC used for something else prior to 6/7, like project point clouds

* PPC + others - project point clouds since 6.0 (or was it 7.0)
* ??? - project point clouds prior to 6.0 (or was it 7.0)

Version 5.4.10 outputs:
e57, xyz, pts, ptx, wrl, dxf, xyb, igs, pod. I don't recall the ability to export FLS until 6.0, and I don't have a project point cloud so I can't comment as to what formats it would export as.

My immediate need is for extensions for two (2) file types and at which version (or versions, starting with 5.0) did they change:
* scan point clouds - I think used to be F3S thru some 5 or 6 version, and now is FPC
* project proint coulds - maybe it used to be FPC, but is now PPC, plus some other extensions that are supporting/index files

My guess is someone in FARO Scene development group or Tech Support has this information ready at their fingertips. :lol:

The file extensions I'm looking for are used internally by SCENE, not for export.

I created a project point cloud, it created .dat files within a folder called pointdatasets. When I created a scan point cloud a .f3s file was created. Again, in version 5.4.10
