Point cloud to CAD Problems2636

I have reached out to Veriscian support four times over the past few days and have yet to receive a response.

My unaddressed issue is the following: we have a project site with Veriscian and have uploaded a few of our models for PTS and CAD conversions. Upon the conversion of a point cloud file into ReCap and then trying to open the converted file in AutoCAD, the drawing file is missing and cannot open the file in CAD.

Thinking that it may be on Veriscian's end, I ordered a point cloud from the MP Beta and I'm experiencing the same issue.

Any advice is VERY much appreciated - at this point we have some very unhappy clients. Thank you!

I made a downloader tool that would allow you to directly download the generated point cloud that is now offline

Hi Stephen

Sincere apologies for taking so long to reply.

The process for importing the point cloud does vary depending on what version you have, but will attempt to troubleshoot as best I can. Judging by the error message, it sounds to me like you are trying to open the point cloud directly within AutoCad. For most AutoCad versions, the point cloud still needs to be imported (even though it's in the .rcs Autodesk format) while the drawing (.dwg) is the base file type for AutoCad. The best way to use the point cloud is to first open AutoCad, create a new drawing (.dwg), then import/insert the point cloud into your drawing. There are a few step guides I found from Googling this that might be helpful.

Unfortunately Autodesk don't make it easy. Even though you have a proprietary Autodesk point cloud format, it's still necessary to perform all of the steps to make it work with other Autodesk products.

I hope this helps a little. Apologies again for the delay in response

Best Regards

Josh
