Best file type for Rhino?


#1

What is the best file format to export a 3D scanned object to preserve the most detail when opening it in Rhino?

Specifically, I’m using FlexScan software, which can export files as:

  • .3d3
  • .obj
  • .ply
  • .stl
  • .fbx
  • .raw

Hi Natalie- all should be fine, assuming you meant 3ds for the first one. The format itself will not be the determining factor - any of these formats will accurately transfer the mesh faces into Rhino.
