Load a point cloud in Trimble Connect for web?

Is it possible to view in Trimble Connect for web environment a point cloud with a Sketchup model?

It should be:

Trimble Connect for Browser 3D Viewer User Guide - Viewing Point Clouds in 3D

But I just tried opening some and got a unsupported file format message (for .las). It shows point clouds in the saved views that I have (from desktop).

You can, but it’s a massive rigmarole.
You need to convert them via POTREE and host them externally to trimble conect.

The same thing happens to me with the e57 file format as well.

Even if I load them from Trimble Connect for desktop, I can’t see them either.

I just tested Desktop and everything seems fine.

Added some views:

Opened (.las) PC:

Separate issue but I’ve not always been able to move models and PCs to get them aligned in TC (desktop).

It works for me too, but if I upload the point cloud to Trimble Connect web, it’s imposible to view it in the browser.

Hmm: Trimble Connect Knowledge Center - Trimble Inc.

I don’t know if the fooling around is worth it ;^). I like the desktop more. But there are other features that seem to be added to the Web version more often (objects in model are tags/layers, groups and components).

Totally agree. Potree doesn’t have mac version :disappointed:
