I have developed a 3D scanner, this is a relatively fast scan of a big space.


The scanner works great. it Provides text files in X; Y; Z format

The only program I have succeeded to import this is Meshlab. Now trying to import to Blender via Meshlab in .ply format. Something gets imported but it appears as a sphere, I just can not find a way to get this right, any help would be appreciated.

Here are the files https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B7y_Hbr29sx8WFppMjhZUm5ZR1k .TXT directly from scanner and .PLY converted with Meshlab. both open ok on Meshlab, but not on Blender, see the Image.

ply file imported. Scaled as indicated in image below.

  • $\begingroup$ I see now it was just misreadings around the sensor I was viewing originally. Must remove those. $\endgroup$ Mar 5 '16 at 6:34

    $\begingroup$ Would there be a easy way to import X; Y; Z ASCII format directly without going trough Meshlab, Or maybe I should look into making the scanner to generate a PLY directly... $\endgroup$ Mar 5 '16 at 6:36
