    Hi I work with a lot of 3D textured mesh from Pix4D Mapper. Until recently I haven't had the need to interact the 3D models with spatially gereferenced data (points, lines, surfaces). For some reason, the 3D textured meshes are displayed in arbitrary coordinate systems when I open them with other 3D model viewers. 

    Is there a way to have the 3D textured meshes generated in Pix4D Mapper display with their respective output coordinate system (processing in pix4dmapper) when viewed with other 3D model viewer software or programs?

    Hi Raphael, 


    Thanks for your interest in Pix4D software solutions.  

    We offer a support article, How to visualize the 3D textured mesh with georeference that can help.

    Please let me know if you have further questions about the * file.
