Shapefile import : trick

Postby Remi-C » Tue Apr 01, 2014 2:49 pm

I saw that the importing of shapefile .shp is in feature request.

So here is a trick to emulate it :
in QGis, or using OGR : export the shapefile as dxf (autocad).

Then simply import into cloud compare !

Hi Remi-C,
would you please give a short guide how to import DXF to CC? I searched through the guides and software options and found that I am only able to create a shape in CC and cannot import anything "external" into DB.

Well, to import DXF to CC you just have to load the file (with 'File > Open' or drop the file on the 3D view). But it may not work on all versions (at least I'm sure it works on the Windows version ;).
