Learn about raw scans, folders, referenced files, relocating files, renaming scans, and duplicating an RCP file to create a variation.
- [Instructor] In this video I want to…focus on understanding the file structure…of ReCap projects and also managing file size.…I'm looking at a Windows Explorer window here…of our exercise files folder, and I want to talk about…the file structure first.…If you watched the video where we imported scans…and performed the auto registration, then at that time…we were bringing in these scan files right here.…These are the raw files generated by the scanning device,…and in my case that was a Faro scanner,…so it has an FLS extension here,…but if you're using another piece of hardware,…then it might have a slightly different extension…or a different naming convention.…
But these are the raw files, the raw data.…And I'm gonna right click on one of these,…and go to properties, and that file there…is just shy of 200 megs.…So if we assume that they're all about 200 megs…then I've got a little bit more than a gig worth…of raw data there.…Now if you go out and you do a large scan project,…you take 50, 60 scans, you can imagine…
