Importing Point Clouds


Point clouds may be imported into an OpenVSP model from the Import… menu. The point cloud (PTS) format is a very simple X Y Z triad with each row corresponding to a new point, which makes these files very easy to read and write. Once imported, the point cloud may be used as a visual target for manual modeling or as Fit Model targets.

PTS Format

X1  Y1  Z1
X2  Y2  Z2
X3  Y3  Z3
