Shp files and Cloud compare

If wanting to export shape files from cloud compare (useful for tracing features) and use shapefiles in other programs, you will need a .prj file (projection file).

You can get one by saving a shp file from one of the other programs (e.g. QGIS, photoscan/metashape) and copy and rename it to match your cloud compare shapefile.

Make sure it is the correct coordinate system.
