It is possible to download or create a structured point cloud?

I understand that VLX create an unestructured point cloud, but I need the structured point cloud to be able to create a mesh and textures in Agisoft Metashape.
Faro Scene have an option to create Virtual Scans positions inside a unstructured point cloud, but I'm asking if this is possible without using a third party software, is there any option inside IVION or Desktop Indoor Viewer?

Hi Christian,

thanks for using our forum to put up questions.
We've also discussed the same question with our developers, so far from our mapping device natively it's not easy to have a structured pointcloud, as the scan position is constantly varying. Our current software is also not supporting the conversion.

But I've also emphasized your request with our developers again, it's good to know on how universal and the impact of the use cases, we'd also provide the information to our devs and see if it could be developed into a new feature.

Best, Youlin

I can't believe this is not being requested more. There is a huge need to be able to get structured data from NavVis VLX datasets.<br> <br> OR, build a superb mesh option into Ivion!<br> <br> NavVis could also buy Prevu3D. Just saying...<br> <br> &nbsp;

Hello Scott,<br> can you explain more the "huge need" of structured pointcloud from VLX? Is it just for meshing purpose?&nbsp;<br> A lot of customers love the small size of our data and the corresponding coverage. Modelling with our pointclouds works perfectly fine.<br> <br> Also thank you for your business proposal, i will forward to our management ;-)<br> <br> <br> Regards<br> Veit
