Organized PointCloud, e57 or ptx standard

Is it possible to generate an organized point cloud and export it in a format that is similar to e57. Currently, that option is not available. Does "Sort Poorly Organized Point Clouds for Faster Display" attempt to satisfy the standard?

Thanks

    The option to 'Sort Poorly Organized Point Clouds' will re-organize a point cloud spatially so that points that are close to each other spatially are close to each other in the file. If you change your Lidar draw mode to 'Color Lidar by Point Index' you can visualize the sort.

    You can also force the sort of any loaded point cloud by right-clicking on it in the Control Center, then selecting the Layer -> Sort Point Clouds option to spatially sort it.

    You can then export the sorted cloud to any supported format, like LAS, LAZ, etc. Export to e57 is not currently supported, but is on our todo list (item GM-3867) and will likely be in an upcoming release.
