./install.sh (installed without a hitch)
cd into sample imaged folder
ran the command python /home/owner/Downloads/OpenDroneMap/run.py (instead of ./run.py)
imported resultant point cloud, odm-mesh-0000.ply into Meshlab v1.3.2_64bit
exported as a couple of test formats (x3d, wrl, obj, stl)
all formats able to be imported into Blender 2.72 without incident
Thanks for the efforts of all OpenDroneMap community.
