Accepted file types

In this article, you will get to know every file type you can use on our platform.

file type

You can add many file types divided in two categories, you have sources and resources, sources are basically your point clouds and resources are 3d models or secondary point clouds, the difference between the two is pretty simple, you will be able to move a resource when a source will be fixed into the viewer.

Please note that depending on your subscription, by default the maximum size per file is up to 200GB, if you have a file greater than 200GB please contact support to increase that limit. For the moment being, it can go up to 1.4TB per file and even more if it is needed.

Sources file type :

Point clouds:

  • RCP, RCS (via ZIP) 
  • LAS
  • LAZ
  • E57
  • BPF
  • XYZ

Shape files:

  • Shape File (zip format) : The zip should contain at least 3 files, the SHP, the SHX and the DBF. Make sure those 3 files all have the same name.

Resources file type :

  Point Clouds :

  • RCP, RCS (via ZIP) 
  • LAS
  • LAZ
  • E57
  • BPF
  • XYZ

  3D Models (from CAD only):

  • GLB
  • GLTF
  • PLY
  • FBX (2012 or newer)
  • OBJ
  • STEP (AP203, 214, 242)
  • IFC (2x3)
  • DXF
  • IGES
  • JT (v8.0-v10.x)
  • STL
  • VRML (v1 / 1995, v2 / 1997)
  • 3DS 
  • Collada
  • X3D

Please note that every other file format will not be working as source or resource, it will be saved as "other file" and you will therefore not be able to see it in the viewer.


If you have any problem or difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact the platform's team.
