Best software to import captures into

See our Workflows section for full tutorials. For free software, we recommend the following:

  • If you are just looking to open the mesh data you can use MeshLab, a free program for Mac, Windows and Linux that opens most data formats Polycam exports, including .obj.
  • For opening point cloud data we recommend CloudCompare, a free program that opens most point cloud formats -- CloudCompare comes with a Viewer app which is a nice lightweight point cloud viewer.
  • For editing the exported data, or composing scenes Blender is a free and very powerful tool for working with 3D data on Mac, Windows and Linux.
  • If you are looking for a differnet use-case or more sophisticated tool then chances are you already have a better idea of what you need than we do ;)
