Hi,

 

Relatively new to the 3D scanning thing so was wondering if there was a way of using point cloud data in inventor? I was looking at using the Faro Focus 3D which i think produces files in .fls format. Anybody with any info it would be greatly appreciated. I currently use Inventor professional 2011 but have access to 2012 and 2013 whenever i get round to upgrading the laptop.

 

Thanks!

Seems the answer to my question is no or at least needs user intervention. But this is still cool.
