Well that´s becoming kind of frustrating. I think the customer´s demands are virtually impossible and at least I don´t think that Cheetah3d is the way to go when you invest in 3d-scanner software though.
One last thing come to my mind is the GLC-Player which aims for displaying lots of different 3d file types and runs on Mac+Windows - maybe test this out before proceeding here.

Cheers
Frank

Yes, it's frustrating ...
It seems to me that you are trying to answer a customer need without fully understanding what's required to achieve it. Fine. No problem and if we can help, we will. But you need to answer all the questions we are asking. Otherwise you might be soon on your own.
Frank's solution ( using the .dae format ) is likely the best providing your "cloud point / Polygons" file out of the scanner is not "giant".
You should also check Meshlab which is also a PC and Mac app.

you can do that with the .dae format an there is a PC player for that as Frank indicated

Sorry, I do not know what cloud point is... I will have read that one.. I do not know how many poligons the scanning makes.. I normally just take VR Moves and Photos.. I am not a 3D modelling guru... I have just been given an opportunity to branch out since the company likes my VR Movies... So they have asked me to see if I can do as they need... Now I have to rely on experts.. to answer questions I do not necessarily know what I am asking.. Its just a matter of reading and leaning from those in the KNOW..

I am just a primary teaching trying very hard to get out of teaching to do things on my own for my little girls future... Teaching is not a good job...

My web site is only just beginning to be made...

Am I on my own NOW... But if you do not want to answer, then thats ok...

Have you tried the GLC-Player I mentioned? Could be a good solution.

may I ask where are you from, Destiny?

P.S.: writing from my brand new PC, first time I use a new toy that looks and feels ugly than the old one (my 3y old MBP)... don't say it, I *have* to (if only I could use all those cores with Cheetah...!)

Hi... That GLC player is 42meg so not sure about that.. most people will not want to download that size player.. unless I am downloading more than that... like software etc... Its downloading now...

I also downloaded the Strata Live 3D CX 2 software last night... It works on Java but oh man, its expensive and the viewing window is not that big.... and it will not import a obj file...

When I got my 3.1 3D Studio Max Teacher Licence I also downloaded the 3D Cult plugin.. that was a wonderful thing.. worked just like Mr Piggy... but not sure if that would work on a Mac.. I do not thinks so since the payer looks like it just Windows...

One would have thought in this 3D world that a simple thing like a cross-platform player would be available very easily... This is the only thing left stopping me from taking on the 3D contract... Nothing easy!...

I really appreciate all you help you guys have given... and your patience..

Destiny..
