Problem with converting PLY to STL using integrated MeshLab
I have the fabscan already for about a year and never get a good scan, I got PLY files but every program I uses (cura, 3dbuilder, enz.) gives errors on that type of file. I must admit that I also had little time for troubleshooting.
But this the latest situation.
I have downloaded the last image (0.8.0) and put it on the pi3. With the calibration I get heat problems so I add a fan to the pi3. Calibration done (take while). Then I run the first scan and again I get a PLY (not readable as before). The I run the meshlab to convert to an STL file, I get only a popup which shows the start of meshlab, but I get never (even after a very long waiting time) a finished popup.
When I restart the fabscan the file folder (there is no option menu) don't show any scanned files, only when I start a new scan after when the option menu is available again, I can see all the scans I have made, but still no working meshlab.
I have retried different SD cards (al 16Gb), I have expand the space (raspi-config), I have now a PI4 with the same problems.
I have tried to install the fabscan completely on the latest raspbian versions (lite and full) but then I get to many (and for me not understandable) errors. So I went back to to the image.
use meshlab extern... In the Fabscamsoftware the Meshfunktion will not works. When you get the Message """the teperature is 86.2 Grad""-- this is ok, no issue. And you can download the files with ftp-program.
