Vizard supports point clouds models with .3dc, .asc, and .ply file extensions and the DotProduct3D scanner cloud format (.dp).

If you have a text file with a different extension and the data is in XYZ format, rename the extension to .3dc and then load it in Inspector or Vizard. XYZ data is required while RGB and XYZ normal data are optional. The data should be space separated and RGB values must be in the 0-255 range.

For other file types that can’t be renamed and loaded, try converting them to a Vizard compatible format using CloudCompare. CloudCompare is an open source point cloud and mesh processing application that imports/exports to many different formats.
