Displaying color information in ply file

I have a ply file which has point data in it. It also contains colour information. I am new to Rhino. Can you give guidance on how to plot the colour data please?

Are you just looking to see the vertex color data? If so, the Rendered display mode should show it.

Yes just the vertex color data. Here’s a bit of the ply file I was looking at.

ply
format ascii 1.0
element vertex 36
property float x
property float y
property float z
property float nx
property float ny
property float nz
property float intensity
property uchar diffuse_red
property uchar diffuse_green
property uchar diffuse_blue
end_header
13.32 12.84 3.06 -0.352745 -0.230493 0.906887 1 255 0 0

When I open the file, I get a yellow hue to each point and I don’t seem to progress from there despite which display I select. Help!

Dear Brian

Thanks for this. I asked a follow up question, but I think I am OK now. I just took the diffuse_ out of the ply and everything started working. Thanks again
