Registering 2 Separate Projects Together

Post by TByers » Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:48 pm

Hi there,

My team and I have broken up a massive work package into areas. 14 of them to be exact. We are registering each area 1 by 1, as individual SCENE files. Is there a way that we can bring one project (Area), into the other and register them together to make one big file?

Thanks in advance

You can do this in a few different ways.

1. You can import registered projects into a master project file. This retains the cluster structure.

2. You can export ordered fls scans into a directory, and then import them into a master project file. The scans will come in registered but without a cluster structure. You can also use this technique to batch rename them.

3. I believe there is a third way involving importing workspaces but I've always just used the first two techniques.

THANK YOU for the quick response, Tommy. Would you have any tips to execute the first method? Thanks

Create a new project, title it appropriately.

Once you have registered each respective area or group, go into the master project, navigate to the import tab and import projects. You're looking to pick the .lsproj file for each respective area/group project.

You can then register them together, treating them like large clusters.

Note that each scan needs to have a unique name or it will not be imported. If you have 14 separate projects where each scan starts with something generic like "FARO_Scan000" you will want to use the second method instead.
