PLY will let you edit in meshmixer with Per-Vertex to edit in Meshmixer. OBJ will allow you to export jpg as a textureuv.
I usually use PLY as i can click the  PROCESS/External Edit/View Mesh in Explorer, edit then Reload Edited mesh from disk after overwriting the edit_me.ply

Hey Tobby,

Have you ever run into this error message on soanect?  No frames were recoded.  I get this when I try to watertight it .

I usually use the FILL HOLES, then select Watertight and Low (smoothing)

Yes.  I’m reloading the file into skanect from my desktop so I can edit and send it to shapeways from there. That’s my process and it works for every other single file except for this one .

have you checked the data in your *.skn folder to make sure it is all there?

Hey Tobby!

Thanks for the follwow up.  The assets are there in the .skn folder , it’s when I import the file and try to watertight that I get the error message.   These is a sequence of images of the process I follow.

I thought i replied to this, the Images older for the scans are not shown in your skn folder. these are the actual capture files and should be tons of them.
when computing a watertight, it refers to the images folders (aka captures) to procure a good watertight model. These are also used to make the meshes during recording and reconstruction.
you are missing the images folder and the lots of subfolders with the capture data.
