point cloud import

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I dont see import support for simple .txt point cloud files with only "x y z x y z x..." coorrinates?! Is meshlab also capable of meshing those?

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      This is the functionality that I really need for the application use I have in mind. I am talking about fairly structured point clouds where each line of text represents one complete loop.

    No, you cannot mesh them.

    You can import .asc files. Trouble is, Meshlab will stupidly treat it as just
    a bunch of vertices.

    There is no option whatsoever anywhere in the software to treat it as a non-
    indexed mesh. Or to index it.

    I only really wanted to use Meshlab to generate a face-vertex mesh from a
    point cloud wherein the mesh was defined as in a triangulated ASCII .ply file,
    without the header.

    You'd think such basic, fundamental functionality would be cared for.


    Look further, Meshlab isn't the tool for us.

    @nobody, it is possible to mesh a simple xyz pointcloud in .txt format. Simply
    rename the .txt file to .asc, compute normals and mesh it with the appropriate
    reconstruction algorithm.

    @accounts, good luck finding a free tool as powerful as meshlab...
