I would like to use Plotly in an ipython notebook to visualize a model and/or points cloud created from from Photoscan.
Here is the problem:
Photoscan exports its points cloud in these formats:
Point cloud format in [PointsFormatOBJ, PointsFormatPLY, PointsFormatXYZ, PointsFormatLAS, PointsFormatExpe,
PointsFormatU3D, PointsFormatPDF, PointsFormatE57, PointsFormatOC3, PointsFormatPotree,
PointsFormatLAZ, PointsFormatCL3, PointsFormatPTS, PointsFormatDXF]
Photoscan exports its models in these formats:
Model format in [ModelFormatOBJ, ModelFormat3DS, ModelFormatVRML, ModelFormatPLY, ModelFormatCOLLADA,
ModelFormatU3D, ModelFormatPDF, ModelFormatDXF, ModelFormatFBX, ModelFormatKMZ,
ModelFormatCTM, ModelFormatSTL, ModelFormatDXF_3DF, ModelFormatTLS]
I have not been able to find a way to convert any of these (ideally one PointsFormat and one ModelFormat) into something that plotly will load via the python API.
I do not have deep experience with these formats so am reaching out to the community to see if anyone else has experience with them. I did find one plotly user who imported the PLY format into plotly via the R api ( geomorph::read.ply() ).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
