Colour on Mesh issue

Post by dineshkimraj » Fri May 17, 2019 7:29 pm

Good day all,

I am new to using 3DReshaper. I created a mesh from point cloud and with the colour coming from the scanner. I exported it as a .stl file.

I imported the mesh into Autodesk 3DS max but the mesh came in without the colour.

Can anyone help me with this issue?

Can you import a PLY or OBJ into 3DS Max? Both of those come in with color maps.

I tried the .obj but it still does not come in with the colour.

Hi everyone,

In order to export the color of deviation maps into OBJ, you have to create a textured mesh from the inspected mesh.
There is a dedicated tool for that in the Image menu: conveŕt to textured mesh.

Once the mesh is textured (and not only inspected), the exported OBJ will contain a nice image showing the deviations.

Hope this helps
