3D scanning to archicad

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello!
Hope this is the right place to ask and that someone here is familiar with 3D scanners and Archicad.
I have a laserscanner (Leica RTC 360) wich i use to draw existing buildings with. Now with the program Cyclone 3DR i can makes meshes with texture(like the building attached), and i want to place those objects into archicad. Is there a way to import these 3D structures into archicad? i want to have texturized meshes of buildings and terrain wich surrounds my drawing in 3D.

Thanks

You can import point clouds in Archicad (format's either .xyz, or .e57)

Cylone exports into many different formats, most which Archicad can import.

Just try it out and let us know! 🙂

I think John is trying to import the mesh into Archicad and not the point cloud. Which makes sense, because point clouds are not that useful when it comes to producing drawings.

John, you can import meshes into Archicad, for example in 3ds format. I've previously done this with a landscape mesh, including the texture. Importing the mesh was easy, however getting the texture to align to the object was a huge pain. It also heavily slowed down the viewport. You might be able to use hotlinks to attach the file and maybe this will make the process easier.
