David 5. How to extract raw data values

[ Edited ]

So to my understanding, during the 3D scanning process, the software creates a mesh grid of triangles in which I am assuming each intersection has x, y, and z coordinates. Is there any way to extract these values in David 5 so I can analyze the data of a specific surface? I noticed that the FAQs mentioned free software (meshlab) for measurements in millimeters, but what I need is measurements down to the micrometer scale.

If you export scan in .ply format you can open your file in text editor (Notepad). It looks like this:

Maybe that helps somehow.
