Exporting a structured .e57 from Cyclone Register 360

In this article you are going to learn how to export a structured e57 file from Cyclone Register 360


Cyclone Register 360 is a point cloud processing and analysis software for 3D laser scanning professionals where you have automated tools and point cloud specific workflows which allow users to import point cloud data, then quickly process, analyze and create high-quality customer deliverables.


General information

The .e57 format can store point cloud data from laser scanners and other 3D imaging systems, as well as associated 2D imagery and core meta-data. To better understand the e57 format, please make sure to read the article "Better understand E57 files".

With Cyclone Register 360 you will be able to export :

  • a structured e57 with all the stations inside (recommended for the platform)
  • structured e57 for each station (unrecommended for the platform)
  • unified e57 (unrecommended, you will lose the structure, no bubble view possible)

In this article we are going to see how to export a structured e57 with all the stations inside.


Exporting a structured .e57 using Cyclone Register 360

1. Once you have finished the processing and registration process, open the "Report" by using the icon in the toolbar at the top right of the window

2. Form the window "Report" switch to the "Properties" of the project and from the "Publish Options" tick "E57 (as one file)". A new window will open where you choose the location of the export.

3. (Optional) Recommended settings for Register 360.

This process might take some time depending on the number of point clouds and on how many stations there are. 

Once this process is finished, you can share the e57 file via our platform by adding it to a project. 

To find out how to upload a file to a project, please read the article "Add files to project".

*Please note that for register 360 the e57 will have the 360° images stored inside. And when you will upload the project on the platform, you can be able to download them".
