    Importing / Opening *.c3d files (Positional Data into Volumetric Data)

    Eujin Pei

      Hello Guys,

       

      I am using a Vicon motion capture device that tracks the position of retro-reflective nodes which are worn by actors.

      The native file from the Vicon system is in *.C3D.

       

      I was wondering if it is possible to convert positional data (*.c3d) into volumetric data (eg. STL, IGES or STEP) for modelling in  Solidworks?

       

      The Vicon capture device also exports positional data as a vfile (*.v); filmbox (*.fbx); camera calibrated file (*.CP); or as a threshold table (*.rtt).

      Of these, the *.fbx is recognised by Autodesk Maya but I have not tried this. The preference would be to convert directly from *.c3d into *.stl for modelling.

       

      Does anyone know of any plug-ins or convertors or third party software? Thank you.

       

      Yours sincerely,

      Eujin
