Then i found a old forum: http://forum.david-3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=1335 with exact the same file so i guest its a david-laserscanner file. And so i came out here because the said its embadded in here.

 

My question is can you anybody help me out to convert this point cloud to something i can open in Cinema 4D r20. The file is 1.4 MB small so i can post it also.

Hi Simon

 

Unfortunately the cad file you describe is not, to the best of my knowledge, created using the david laser software,  and is not a format that the software can read nor write.  It appears to be some form of g-code like data structure with instructions that tell the machine how and where to move.

 

I see that you've posted this question in a few forums on the web - I hope that someone out there can help you find a suitable converter.

 

Cheers!
