How can a Faro *.fls file be opened by MicroStation
The Faro *.fls file format is a point cloud format that will not open directly in MicroStation, instead it needs to be converted to a format that is supported by the 'Point Tools' tool.
Open the Point Clouds dialog ( File > Point Clouds )
From the Point Clouds dialog select File > Convert and change the Files of Type: to *.fls or all files. Browse to and select the *.fls file to be opened ( Converted )
Select Open and change any settings required ensuring under the Action heading to choose Yes to Attach to the opened file.
Select OK and the file will be converted to a *.pod file and attached to the dgn as a Point Cloud.
