Importing 3D meshes from ContextCapture

Hello Everyone!

Does anyone have experience with importing georeferenced 3D models into cesium from Bentley ContextCapture, and have it placed in the correct location?

If so, can you please outline the workflow?

I have tried both OBJ and FBX, but it seems both of them wants me to put the tileset in the correct location by hand, seems like it does not get the georeferencing part.

What reference system are you exporting the data in?


You are correct that georeferenced 3D models coming out of ContextCapture are not supported at this time.

The good news is that we have a major tiler update coming out later this year that will support georeferenced models in a variety of reference systems.

We don’t have a formal announcement yet, but will share details when we are ready.

Hi Matt,

I was told about a method of exporting in local ECEF system, and then add the offset somewhere?

I have the origin in a separate XML file:
