Are You Able to Change Units in Photoscan?
« on: November 06, 2017, 11:33:57 PM »
Hey all,

I am working on putting Photoscan models into Stratovan Checkpoint. I have posted previously about having trouble with the scale of the object in Checkpoint. Someone has suggested that there is an issue with the file format I am using. My Photoscan models are exported as PLY files. I just learned that these files don't actually carry information regarding units with them. Or at least something of that nature--not too great with this stuff.

So my question is twofold:
1.) Is there a way to change the units of the exported Photoscan model (preferably in millimeters)?


2.) Is there another file format I can export my Photoscan Models in that DOES carry unit information, and that I can also use in Checkpoint?

Thanks for your time!
