Transfer FARO Scene point clouds into an Autodesk RECAP project

In this user report, we discuss how to convert point clouds from FARO Scene to an Autodesk RECAP project *.rcp so that you can import these point clouds in AutoCAD.

There are three different ways to transfer data processed in FARO Scene into an Autodesk RECAP project.

A| Use *.rcp export function directly in FARO Scene

  1. We start with a Scene project that has already been registered.
  2. In the workflow bar just look for "Export".
  3. Use the tool "Export as project".
  4. Switch export format to "Recap Project (*.rcp)" and select output folder.
  5. Click on "Export" to start the export. Note that it will take a little time to export your project, depending on your project size.

B | Use Autodesk RECAP and import the FARO Scene project

  1. We start with a Scene project that has already been registered.
  2. Open RECAP and launch a new project.
  3. IMPORT: Click on "Select files to import" and navigate to the Scene project you would convert into *.rcp format.
  4. Import the ".lsproj" file of your Scene project.
  5. Before you start importing the scan data, please adjust the filter options given by RECAP.
  6. Start the import. It will take a little time to import all scans.
  7. Index the scans.
  8. You can review the point cloud in RECAP before you save the project.

C | Use the E57 export option in FARO Scene and the import option in Autodesk RECAP

  1. We start with a Scene project that has already been registered.
  2. In the workflow bar just look for "Export".
  3. Use the tool "Export Scan Points" and then "Export Scans - Ordered".
  4. Select E57 format and make sure that you enter the check box to export every scan in a separate file.
  5. Adjust the other export options if you like and start the export. Note that it will take a little time to export all the scans into E57 format.
  6. Open RECAP and launch a new project.
  7. IMPORT: Click on "Select files to import" and navigate to the folder where you saved all .e57 files and select them.
  8. Before you start importing the scan data, please adjust the filter options given by RECAP.
  9. Start the import. It will take a little time to import all the scans.
  10. Index the scans.
  11. You can review the point cloud in RECAP before you save the project.
