Yes, after some hours google-time looking for converters my boss decided:
We must buy Recap!
BTW: the scan was done by Deutsche Telekom. Experimental, scanning cell-phone towers
for CAD-usage. Nobody wants to climb up the tower for doing measurements
Lets see if Recap has export functions for 3D to load in FC.
The original rcs-file has a size of 615 MB because of scanning the complete forrest around the tower
Must be like this
Code: Select all
Mod |_ Trails |_ freecad_python_support |_ pivy_trackers
As mentioned in my first post Meshlab is afaik able to open pts-files. By the way column 4 to 6 is RGB. Sometimes you can find 7 columns. Then column 4 is intensity, a value for the quality of the reflected beam compared to the sent.thschrader wrote: ↑Sat Jun 20, 2020 8:43 amThe original rcs-file has a size of 615 MB because of scanning the complete forrest around the tower
In the end I could import the tower to FC.
The text-editor needs a while to replace points/commas in such a huge file.
My Excel decimates the txt-file, I cannot load more than approx. 1 mio lines
For a technical documentation the original scan is far too rough.
FC places the point-cloud kilometers away from the origin depending on drone-GPS.
As far as I understood some Youtube posts on Recap, there is the possibility to upload the point-cloud data to the Autodesk cloud (after creating a user-account). They can produce a mesh for downloading and using in CAD.
But is that good way for sensible data? (Often there are antennas from the government/military at the towers and this is classified data…)
Per @HakanSeven12 answer the below solutions are superfluous, but FWIW
Code: Select all
df = pd.read_csv(r'data.csv', decimal=',')
