Dear Viviana, Have you tried geomagic? It has been a while since I last used this program so I forgot the details, but it is capable of importing obj files with textures and then exporting coloured ply files. Like I said, I forgot the exact steps you would have to take, but I have done it before, so it is certainly possible. I hope that somewhat helps you.

After, you can open and display the new mesh in Avizo (Display Open Inventor Scene). In this way you can acquire the landmark in Avizo. Best, Antonio 2016-09-01 13:31 GMT+02:00 M.
