[Plugin] Cloud (update)

Postby Didier Bur » Fri Jan 16, 2009 9:07 pm

Hi,
Below is an update of my script to import 3D "points cloud".
It now skips blank lines, wrong lines (not returning 3 valid coordinates) and invalid data (non-digit data).
Enjoy,
;)

Cool update, thanks! Spares a lot of manual editing of messy data files. :thumb:

Dear Didier,
Just wanted to say thank you so much for your revised script - I had the same problem described - but your enhanced '09 version solves it and is much improved - the auto line drawing is particularly good. I'm using your script to allow me to work with complex geometry within Sketch-up which I've calculated within Excel.
Sterling work old chap!

Thanks for the update!

Also, this observation might help people with unexplainable "nothing happens"-errors:

Hi I am currently trying to open point cloud data using this plug-in, however, the data I am using is in .ptsb format which will not work, any ideas how I can convert it to .csv?

Hi,
No need to convert it to CSV.
Here is what Autode$k says about ptsb format:
Pointcount
X Y Z Intensity R G B
(Intensity is a float value 0-1)

Example:
2
0 0 0 .5 128 128 128
1 1 0 .5 128 128 128


Quite simple isn't it :D
So open your file in a text editor, erase first line (number of points), save it to 'somefilename.txt' and it should work. Just set the points cloud reader first dialog to use a space delimiter, and second dialog to set X,Y,and Z coordinates as the first, second and third datum of each line (see below).
I've tried this example and it works.
