Frequently asked questions


Why is the pointcloud not at the same position as the scanned objects?

Make sure to set the scanning sensor as the active camera before scanning and deselect the Sensor coordinates checkbox

I want to edit a pointcloud but the points are not visible

Make sure to select vertex select mode in the 3D View, because the point cloud does not have faces or edges

I can not open COLLADA files

The binary releases use a very stripped down version of blender to run on as many systems as possible. You can import COLLADA files with the official Blender from ( and save them as .blend files. Once you have them as blender files you can simply open them in BlenSor. Another solution would be to compile BlenSor yourself and include the COLLADA support.
