Spatial offers several possibilities for High end real time online rendering. Let’s see how to prepare our 3D files to get the best of it. As it is trans software, we will use at least 4 of them in parallel to get the same results. Let’s remember, it’s not the software but the workflow that is taken into account.
We will start from this tutorial on the Spatial web page that helped us to start. https://support.spatial.io/hc/en-us/articles/4418819002004
Basic geometry to start.
Let’s set up a basic scene for our tests : a wall, a floor, a cube, sphere, and Nefertiti (why not) downloaded here : https://www.openculture.com/2019/11/download-stunning-3d-scans-of-the-bust-of-nefertiti.html

With this tiny tuto, we will compare 4 automatic retopology methods with Meshlab, Instant Meshes, Rhino and 3DsMax 2023. Meshlab and Instant Meshes are Free, Rhino, not too expensive and Max…well…it’s pro software. There are many other solutions, they will be compared later.
For this test, I’ll use the Nefertiti bust which can be found here: https://www.openculture.com/2019/11/download-stunning-3d-scans-of-the-bust-of-nefertiti.html or here https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/nefertiti-c2f7a55a51fa495eb1d284c0fb8fdcee
Remember that Retopology is not simple decimation, it’s really a way to reorganize the mesh to make it work better for further use.
The file is 6.421.620 polygones. Continuer la lecture de Easy Retopology
Tree to PLY
It can be useful to use cloudpoints in Grasshopper and therefore having a way import PLY files.
The Binari format is fully readable, meaning that it’s possible to read, filter, and extract any useful information. Let’s dive.
We will start from the photogrammetry from a tree. To test we will use a light version of the cloud point.
