Export Formats Supported by SCENE

FARO SCENE Screen and Box

Overview

These are the export formats you can use to share FARO SCENE data with other software packages. For more information about export file formats, see the SCENE User Manuals.

Format Notes
CPE: Format created by FARO CPE is a new file format for point data developed by FARO that combines
minimal file size with flexible quality settings.
DXF: Format created by AutoDesk Most common CAD format, nearly all CAD software should be able to read this format. SCENE exports scan points and 3D objects, with the limitations that 3D objects are not exported as solids, and textures of meshes are not supported.
E57: Standard format defined by ASTM This format is only for scan points, not for objects. SCENE can import and export scan points in E57 format.
IGES: CAD format most used in the Industry This format can handle solid objects, where as DXF can not. Some CAD software, such as DELMIA products and others can read this format, but in fact do not support all IGES objects. All SCENE objects and point clouds can be stored in this format, except the texture of meshes. This format should not be used for point clouds because the file size becomes large.
POD: Pointools Pointools is a third-party application that provides an environment for viewing,
analyzing, editing and producing visual content from a range of 3D data types.
PTC: Point cloud format This format is used by PointCloud and FARO Cloud from kubit.

This format option was removed in SCENE 5.2 and later, as PointCloud can read native FARO FLS scan files.

PTS: Point cloud format This format is used with various software packages, for example Leica Cyclone.
PTX: Point cloud format This format is used with various software packages, for example Leica Cyclone.
RCS: ReCap When exporting scans to the RCS file format, the xyz-coordinate and RGB or intensity values will be stored in the exported file for each scan point. Multiple scans can be exported as multiple RCS files, or as one, merged scan.
VRML: 3D file format invented for the Internet Most 3D CAD and design software can handle this format, but some of them ignore point data. Use this format if you want to import CAD data into SCENE.
XYZ Ascii: point cloud format This general file format is a simple text file with one point per line. Any software that can handle points can read this format.
XYZ Binary: same as XYZ Ascii Binary format  that is not a readable text file and has a small file size.
