I'm working on behalf of a DOT to get some 3D models from Pictometry. Here's a list of 3D file formats they list on some literature:
• ESRI ArcGlobe 9.2• Viewtec encrypted file format (*.ivc)• OpenFlight files (*.flt)• Autodesk 3D Studio files (*.3ds)• VRML 1.0/VRML97 files (*.wrl)• Wavefront files (*.obj)• LightWave Object files (*.lwo)• LightWave Scene files (*.lws)• Design Workshop files (*.dw)• Geo files (*.geo)• OSG files (*.osg)• IVE files (*.ive)
Does anyone have experience with this vendor or these file formats that can tell me what file format(s) are recommended for use within MicroStation V8i? Thank you!
I don't know much about Pictometry but If I were bringing in 3d models from this list I would start with OBJ.
Exactly what I was looking for - thanks Jerry. I really appreciate your time and expertise.
