Hello, First time on the forum, looking to confirm the workflow for exporting textured mesh files (from imported ply files) to textured obj files. Thanks
Hi scedarleaf - are the texture/image files coming with the ply files?
Hi Pascal, No. Here’s the workflow, I export textured ptx files and import textured ptx to meshlab then export textured ply and then import textured ply to Rhino.
Hi scedarleaf - can you send us one of these? (firstname.lastname@example.org), If the ply comes in with texture maps, that’s one thing but if it’s got vertex colors, that’s a different thing…
I’ll upload in the morning. I texture map the point clouds in Cyclone and
export the ptx and the process mentioned earlier. The textures hold all the
way into Rhino.
Hi Scott - the mesh has vertex colors, not a texture as a texture map - V6/WIP supports exporting vertex colors to obj (under the Mesh tab in the export settings dialog) - I’d try that.
