    Hi henry_mountain

    It is NOT possible as the PTS format is UNORDERED point cloud (dumb point cloud ) and PTX or E57 are ORDERED point clouds ( point clouds with scanner positions and transformation stuff. So in principle, you can create PTS from PTX or E57 but not the opposite way. The data is just NOT there.
    So the only way is to use Cyclone and export it in a proper format that RC can process ( PTX or E57 )

    Your "conversion" is not good for many reasons and can and will cause issues if you use the workflow like with PTS files, you have NO information on occlusion etc.

    Thanks for the quick response, I thought that might be the case, we're now going through the process in Cyclone to export the proper format (PTX or E57)

    Thanks again for your help
