This action will save the file in the Echo file format. See below for more information on the Cyberware Echo file format.

Save As Echo...

This menu selection allows the user to save a scan in the Echo file format. The Echo file format is Cyberware's standard file format for single scan files. Sample I/O routines, as well as source code for some basic conversion utilities can be found at the Cyberware FTP site. Feel free to download and peruse the code.

To save a scan in this format, choose Save As Echo... from the menu, then enter the new file name in the File name field of the dialog box and press the Save button.

Save As Ply...

This menu selection allows the user to save an image in the RMap Ply file format. This type of Ply file is the most widely used by Cyberware. All recent Cyberware software uses this format, which is a tessellated triangle mesh type file. The Ply file format specification is available from Stanford University's Graphics Lab.

To save a scan in this format, choose this item from the menu, then enter the new file name in the File name field of the dialog box and press the Save button.

This menu selection is available only to DigiSize software developers. This selection is primarily used to test non-Cyberware scan data with the DigiSize segmentation and measurement functions.

Exit

Use this selection to quit the DigiSize program. Please note that any unsaved scans will be deleted. Ensure that you have saved the scans by selecting Save from the File menu. As an added protection, the software will prompt the user if there are unsaved scans loaded into the program.
