Scene 7 ptx export

Post by graham.watson » Thu Sep 14, 2017 12:06 am

We’ve done a small scan job and processed the scans in Scene 7.0. Targets were used, measured with total station and manually registered.
Only two scans were done , the job processed and looks good in scene. Accuracy reports all ok.

The issue is when exporting as a single ptx and importing to Recap. The two scans are approx. ~1m apart horizontally.
If we export the two scans individually they both import fine.

Is this a scene issue or a Recap one?

What version of ReCap? The only past issue I can think of is one about single-file PTX transforms and large coordinates (ReCap would cut digits/precision inadvertently). That was well over a year ago though.

If you aren't on a large coordinate offset (like more than 10km), or you're on a recent (4.0+) version of ReCap, this wouldn't affect you. In which case I don't think this is about ReCap, but would be happy to take a look.

I've got this problem also. I had 24 stations, all registered with a good result in SCENE 7 but when I import the project to RECAP, they mess with each other. I had to re-registered again in Recap :( Don't know that's Recap or Scene 7 issue :(

All

Have you tried exporting E57 format.

When importing the E57 to Recap skip the registration process and then index to RCS/RCP

This is a process we use on every project and never fails whether it is 2 scans or 3000 scans

Have you tried just exporting to ReCAP format? Does that come out okay?
