I am trying to mesh and thicken point cloud data into a solid in order to 3D print it, but I am unable to thicken the complex surface. I attached my .xyz point cloud data, I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me with it.
I used Mesh Lab to import your points and create a surface, then export as STL and import into SW
Your point data file was pretty 'dirty' and seemed to have 1000's of lines just reading 0,0,0 so I simply deleted most of it.
It also seemed to have UNIX end lines.
Mesh Lab is brilliant and free. The help is pretty limited but here's a link that will help
How to Create an STL file from a XYZ file in MeshLab
Thank you very much for the help. I will look at the mesh lab you are talking about. But the thing is, I need the shape to be exactly the same as what I have in the data file. I am wondering if it is possible? I tried multiple times but had no luck..
