shp file not visible in photoscan/metashape

if you import a shape file into photoscan/metashape and it’s not visible, but you really think it should be

good chance that it’s missing

a) a prj file

b) z values

if a) see other post, if b) you can see them in ortho/dem view still, and provided they relate to a coordinates system that matches an existing DEM (e.g. traced in GIS from a vertical DEM) you can project into 3D space. (might be messy). Other options include projecting into 3D in GIS or transforming using cloudcompare or CAD (see other post.. possibly)
