I demonstrate the process of importing a Point Cloud into Blender 2.80 from Autodesk Recap. Starting in Autodesk Recap we export the decimated point cloud into a .pts file, and taking it into Meshlab we convert it into .ply format. This allows us to import the Point Cloud into Blender 2.80.
One of the first tutorials I ever created was for the opensource mind mapping program, Freemind. Freemind helped me with my university studies and is still available to this day. Considering that this tutorialis now over eight years old, I think I have not aged that badly.
