Importing and Exporting Using the Command Line

In addition to the format conversions supported from TerraExplorer user interface, additional conversions can be performed from the SLMeshConverter command line tool:

§  3D Tiles to: 3D Tiles, I3S/SLPK, 3MX, and o3DML

§  OSGB to: 3D Tiles, I3S/SLPK, 3MX, and o3DML

§  o3DML to o3DML

§  3DML to o3DML

To convert, construct a single command line that includes all the following:

1.    Run SLMeshConverter

"c:\program files\Skyline\TerraExplorer Pro\SLMeshConverter.exe" -cmd convert

2.      Define the input layer:

§  For 3DML/o3DML – Full path to the file

§  For 3D Tiles – Full path to the tileset.json

§  For OSGB – Full path to the root OSGB file

-in "FullPathToFile"

3.      -Define the output format:

§  For 3D Tiles

-f "b3dm"

§  For o3DML

-f "o3dml"

§  For 3DML

-f "3dml"

§  For I3S/SLPK

-f "i3s"

§  For 3MX

-f "3mxb"

4.      Define the output file/folder:

§  For 3MX/3D Tiles – Full path to the output folder

§  For 3DML/o3DML – Full path to the output file

§  For I3S/SLPK – Full path to the output file (e.g., "N:/Output Files/OutputFile.slpk")

§  For OSGB – Full path to the root OSGB file

 

Examples:

Convert 3D Tiles to SLPK

"C:\Program Files\Skyline\TerraExplorer Pro\SLMeshConverter.exe" -cmd convert -in "C:\LayersToConvert\tileset.json" -out "N:\Output Files\OutputFile.slpk" -f i3s

 

Convert OSGB to o3DML

"C:\Program Files\Skyline\TerraExplorer Pro\SLMeshConverter.exe" -cmd convert -in "C:\LayersToConvert\Tile_000106_000090.osgb" -out "C:\ConvertedFiles\ConvertedFile.o3dml" -f o3dml

Conversion Methods

§  GUI - Direct conversion via GUI

§  Command Line - Direct conversion (via SLMeshConverter command line tool)

§  Indirect – Indirect conversion – first convert to 3DML and from 3DML to the required format
