align and merge e57 point cloud files

Recommended Posts



I was sent a point cloud scan of a venue where I will be doing a theatrical installation. The trouble is that the scan came to in 55 separate e57 files. I'm interested in advice on how I can align and merge these files into one.


Thanks, Nick

I don’t believe it is possible to accurately align / combine point cloud files inside Vw, so you’ll have to align / combine them prior to importing into Vw.
Take a look at this thread referring to the third-party open source app CloudCompare, which can align / combine different point cloud files. CloudCompare documentation — Align
