I have imported a PLY file sent to me into a new Blender file. There is a Vert count and all the rest displayed at the top of the window, but I don't see anything. Do I need to adjust display options or something?
I think most .PLY object come very big. The object is here but you need to scale it down a lot and center it. This is my process with this sample file : http://people.sc.fsu.edu/~jburkardt/data/ply/airplane.ply
