Lidar point cloud to generate 3mesh


I would like Pix4d mapper to be able to generate 3D mesh files from Lidar point cloud and imported pictures.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! At this moment you can import point cloud data source like LiDAR and use it to generate the DSM, orthomosaic, and other outputs but not the 3D Mesh. This would be a good feature to add. I will share your feedback to the developer team. 


Excuse me for bumping this old topic, but I didn’t want to open a new thread…
Can anyone point me to some documentation on how to import and external LAS file into pix4d using CLI?
I could only find this page but it doesn’t have what I’m looking for.

There is discussion on GUI implementation here but not CLI


Hi @gideon,

Unfortunately, importation of an external LAS file into Pix4Dmapper is not possible via Command-Line.


Tnx for the response. Any plans for such functionality in near future?

Hi Gideon,

Adding this feature is currently not on the roadmap. However, your suggestion might have more weight if a sufficient number of votes will be collected from other users.
