    Hi Mackenzie,

    what do you mean by "cleaned"?

    Have you read this post? https://support.capturingreality.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002941171-e57-crash-on-import

    Hello Gotz,

    I was referring to removing noise points and unnecessary artefacts from the point cloud. I have read that thread but it doesn't mention anything about editing or "cleaning" the original point cloud. FARO scene's "cleaning" capabilities are limited and difficult so I am looking to see if I can use Cloud Compare or some other software for point editing ("cleaning"). 

    I export the "cleaned" points from Cloud compare in .E57 format then I load them into FARO scene to export as a .PTX. Unfortunately the .PTX file wont load in CR. I've also tried to export an ordered .E57 from FARO but it doesn't work properly and creates a file with no points in it.

    Hi Mackenzie,

    ah, sorry, I thought the PTX works for you.

    e57 seems to have some issues, that's why I mentioned the other thread - there are more...

    What you mean by cleaning should be ok, but I never worked with laserscans myself - I only get them from a colleague.

    If you are confident that you did everything right, I would get in touch with support directly - it is mentioned somewhere that there are many different types of e57 and not all are supported yet...
