I think it's important for VW to upgrade it's pointcloud visualisation machine. Lidar scanning increasingly becomes necessary for complex projects and renovations and it would be great if VW received larger files - perhaps deploying a LOD logic (don't know how unreal engine/Autocad/Recap does it, but large files run smoothly without downgrades). At the same time it's important to allow users to see pointcloud data well. The only usable mode is true colour at the moment - so one is limited by the quality of the lidar machine's camera. Autocad is extremely well made to receive and present pointcloud data and it would be a game changer for VW to allow the same level of visual performance. I am attaching a video of some scan data we made in Nicosia, Cyprus which are being shown in a preset Autocad colourscheme. I believe it shows how clear the depth is communicated - assisting the architect to model/draw efficiently around the data. Compared to the VW custom gre yscale colour-scheme that takes away all depth data:
Does anyone (in the USA) work with anyone who can deliver a native Vectorworks model from laser scanning? I've read many of you who do your own, but I'm looking for a third-party or consultant that offers to Vectorworks users with a true VW model (walls, doors, windows). @LudovicChoquette If so, who are they, have you used them, what were the results? I just got off the phone from a company making cold call sales, but they offer to larger firms with that "other" BIM software. (https://www.roboticimaging.com/) What about us in small or solo-practitioner firms (like me)?
Using point cloud in Vectorworks
Neelambari Shukla posted a topic in General DiscussionHi, I am trying to learn point cloud data import into Vectorworks for buildings. Could some one point out to me articles or videos, tutorials for getting started on this. Which point cloud format works best with Vectorworks Are there any third party plugins needed to accomplish this. Can I get point cloud data for few single family homes to practice. I have VSS membership. Does it have any special offering for point cloud data processing. thanks Neelambari
Our surveyor is about to send us a .RCP point cloud file which he advises is openable in Autocad ReCap. We run VWX 2014 Designer and are all on OSX (a mixture of 10.10.5 and 10.8.5 across different machines). Can a .RCP file be opened in VWX 2014 Designer ? If not can we upgrade to a newer version of VWX which will allow us to, if so which version would we need : 2015,16,17 ?
