Point Clouds in 2014

Postby nealmac » Tue Jan 07, 2014 12:44 pm

I'm having serious issues with Revit crawling at a snail's pace whenever I bring a point cloud into it. Can Anyone help me? I've done all the usual setting up plan views and sections with minimal view range to minimise background noise, but still no joy.

1: I've read that I need to break the point cloud file into smaller pieces. If this is true, how do I go about doing it? It's in RCP format.

2: I've used Recap to get my RCS files (3 in total) into RCP format, as I believe this is the correct way to do it in 2014.

3: What is "indexing" files? I'm unser the impression that it's the process of making a point cloud "workable" in Revit. I may be wrong on this.

I think what I need, is a proper step by step tutorial on how to bring the point cloud file into Revit, in the correct manner, in the correct format that doesn't slow Revit down.

Thanks.
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Let's us know how you get on Neal :)

I'm no point-cloud expert, so I'll have to look to others to hopefully answer your query.

I'll have more time after March to get into point-clouds and everything Revit- because I'm going full time BIM/Revit for myself :) expect a LOT more articles / tutorials in the near future! :) :) :)

Haha, cheers Ian. Nah, it was a 36th birthday. Not enough of a landmark to go out and get pissed.
