Steps to Convert FBX to PLY via Python
Python programmers can easily load & convert FBX files to PLY in just a few lines of code.
- Load FBX file via the from_file of Scene class
- Create an instance of PlySaveOptions
- Set PLY specific properties for advanced conversion
- Call the Scene.save method
- Pass the output path with PLY file extension & object of PlySaveOptions
- Check resultant PLY file at specified path
Before running the Python conversion code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- Microsoft Windows or Linux based OS.
