Importing *.xyz files to Sketchfab

(Petzk) #1

Im about to get some bathymetric seabed charts in XYZ format. I wolder if it is possible to import them to Sketchfab?

We don't support XYZ files, but it seems it's quite easy to convert them to STL using the free MeshLab software:

Please let me know if that worked for you!

Thanx, I will let you know how it worked after trying


Looks like that converts it to a mesh. You could also maintain a point cloud, but use a different format (like PLY)

Hey @petzk, did it work?

I did never have to try, The software I use was able to save as *.obj, and other nice formats.. but thanks a ton for the suggestions. I might try it later just out of curiosity. Will let you know then!

Hey that's great, you should introduce that to the Cultural Heritage group on the forum, I'm sure they'd love to give it a try:

Could you post it there?
