Import Point Cloud
In this dialog, you can import an ASCII file containing scanner data.
In this part you can open an ASCII file of different formats:
Different vendors have different formats on their ASCII files for scanner data. In order to easily support a wide variety of these formats, it is possible to create and use scripts. A script is used on a file, interprets the file, and extracts the XYZ coordinates for each scanner point.
The user can use the Script Editor to create their own scripts.
In this section, the output of the file can be viewed after a script has been applied to the input file. The input file itself is NOT changed. The end result is used as input for the triangulation.
Preview Top Lines. Select if, and how many, of the first lines of the file you want to preview.
Preview Bottom Lines. Select if, and how many, of the last lines of the file you want to preview.
Click on OK to save the data and close the dialog.
Click on Cancel to close the dialog without saving the data.
