After months of speculation and waiting it has finally arrived. Native point cloud support for Revit 2012. Like previous versions of AutoCAD revit has adopted the same .pcg file system for point clouds. However unlike AutoCAD, the Revit environment is much more intuitive to use with the use of its scope box to chop through and view the point data. This means that modelling from point clouds is now a relativity and will greatly improve the scan to BIM workflow for retrofit projects.
We were also surprised at the data handling abilities of this format, with file imports of up to 50gb possible!
With other point cloud plugins releasing imminently (Pointools for Revit) point clouds are finally being recognised as a key technology for the civil sector.
