Importing .fls and .fws laser scan files

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble appending or merging .FLS and .FWS files created from the latest version of FARO software, SCENE 4.8.1.24613. I've seen this thread and am wondering if this is a related issue. 

 

When I attempt to append or merge the files into Navisworks Simulate (2011 x64),  I get an error dialog:

 

File [scan file name] does not exist or can’t be opened

 

Failed to load file via NoW64 (hr = 0x80004005)

Error code: 32771

 

[Path to file]

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

 

-Jason

Hi Jsaon,

 

Thanks for your query. Unfortunately Faro 4.8 isn't currently supported, we hope to have support in a future release.Please see the File Formats document for more information on which versions we support

I have downloaded the service pack for navis 2012. When I try to install it , it cancels the install and says that the file is not found. I have repeated the process several times . tried saving the file and running it straight from autodesk. I get the same response both ways. My goal is to be able to bring in FLS files into Navis Manage. Any advice?

I am now able to open the Faro files in Navis Manage, but when the files come in they are not correct on the z axis. Do you have any information on this?

If you append another file in before the .fls, it will come in correctly. I'm not sure why, but if you append the fls alone it comes in incorrectly.
