What is the best way to import *.LAS files?

I've found lots of ways, but they're all pretty dated;)

I've confirmed that my *.LAS files import correctly in Revit.

When I played around with Lidar data previously I wrote myself this little hint sheet. Might help you out:

  • Open LAS files using 3DEM

  • Export via File

    • / Save Map Image
    • / Export GeoTIFF DEM
  • Use BlenderGIS

    • File / Import / Georeferenced Raster
    • Use options in bottom left of import window. Import first On Plane using Map - Image from 3DEM
    • Then import again As DEM / Use Existing Mesh. Turn off subsurf option (use Mesh). Seems to give best results.
    • May crash/fail multiple times, so persevere with options a bit.

Use CloudCompare to convert to a PLY and import that in Blender w built-in ply importer
