Export as a Stanford PLY with normals, vertex colors and texture coordinates

Parameters:
  • filepath (string, (optional, never None)) – File Path, Filepath used for exporting the file
  • check_existing (boolean, (optional)) – Check Existing, Check and warn on overwriting existing files
  • filter_glob (string, (optional, never None)) – filter_glob
  • use_selection (boolean, (optional)) – Selection Only, Export selected objects only
  • use_mesh_modifiers (boolean, (optional)) – Apply Modifiers, Apply Modifiers to the exported mesh
  • use_normals (boolean, (optional)) – Normals, Export Normals for smooth and hard shaded faces (hard shaded faces will be exported as individual faces)
  • use_uv_coords (boolean, (optional)) – UVs, Export the active UV layer
  • use_colors (boolean, (optional)) – Vertex Colors, Export the active vertex color layer
  • global_scale (float in [0.01, 1000], (optional)) – Scale
  • axis_forward (enum in ['X', 'Y', 'Z', '-X', '-Y', '-Z'], (optional)) – Forward
  • axis_up (enum in ['X', 'Y', 'Z', '-X', '-Y', '-Z'], (optional)) – Up
