C# code to Compress PLY


//The source file that needs to be compressed and the output file after saving
string file = "template.ply";
string output =System.IO.Path.GetTempPath() + Guid.NewGuid().ToString() + ".fbx";

// create an instance of Scene
Scene scene = new Scene(file);

// create an instance of AmfSaveOptions 
var options = new Aspose.ThreeD.Formats.FbxSaveOptions(FileFormat.FBX7400ASCII);

//Save the file in the format you want
scene.Save(output, options);
