I am working on a project that requires me to use PLY files. I think it’s a format from Stanford. The scripts are NOT robust, and only work on models that I tested, and I’m sure they won’t work on plenty of PLY files without modification, for example: all vertices must consist of the three coordinates, followed by the normal, otherwise it will not work. The script could definetely use lots of improvement.
Not to discourage you to continue working on these scripts, but there are already some import/export scripts for the PLY-file format:
and I wrote an import script myself a couple of months ago:
Heh, no problem.
