ReCap Index Faro.fls file import problem

I'm trying to import a Faro FLS file (.fls) in ReCap. The file loads, but the import fails on start - returning a big red cross!

 

Am i missing something? Is there a setting or process i need to follow when importing Faro.fls raw format?

 

Thanks

Alex

Hi Alex,

 

Based on your description, it looks like you are using ReCap 1.0 (which was bundled with AutoCAD).  There have been several updates since then, including support for the latest FLS format (including raw folders).

 

Please try the latest version, available at autodesk.com/recap

 

Thanks,

Ryan

I found that once you try and import a file that was touched with Scene 5.2, Recap fails to import. I have reverted to doing all of my reduction within RECAP from the scanner as a work around.

The latest version of ReCap (1.2) supports the latest Faro firmware and format.  You can download it at autodesk.com/recap.

Thank You Ryan. I learned this last night when I was frantically looking for a solution and found the latest Recap release.

Thanks for getting back to me, but this to download the trial version. I need to use recap in a commercial environment, on project work. Currently we're using the recap version bundled with our licensed 2014 version of AutoCAD/Civil3D. Will the trial version accept our current licence agreement, and be available for long term use in a commercial environment? Thanks

I believe the answer is yes.

 

The current version of ReCap has standard and professional features. The version of ReCap bundled in 2014 Suites is just the standard features. So, if you download and install from the web, the features you are using now will work without another license.

 

The professional features of ReCap, which include registration and the ability to incorporate survey control, require the purchase of another license. Note the professional features can be rented by the month, 3-months or year.
