    Point cloud files: pcg file situated differently in Revit and Autocad

    Anybody noticed similar things:

    I have a metric PTX point cloud file, which is indexed and converted to PCG by Revit RAC 2012 sp1.

    When inserting the PCG file to Revit with "origin to origin" option, the point cloud is situated in wrong position: about 40 m below real z-coordinates and around the same distance away from real coordinates in xy-plane. No warnings massages given. When adding next ones with "previous point" option all point clouds are situated nicely together but all are in the wrong coordinates.

    When adding the same PCG-file to Autocad 2012 the point cloud is in the right position, level is right and x,y coordinates are right.

    How come Revit can't handle the PCG file converted with Revit, but Acad can?

    Did you set the shared coordinates and project base point before importing?

      That's a problem we've found in Revit using a variety of point cloud files types. They can be set on the correct coordinate system in ACAD but bust when brought into Revit. We've established a work-around but it consists of manipulating the data in the point cloud file so it contains info Revit is looking for.

        Seeing this as well, can you elaborate on how you are manipulating the point cloud file? Before or after indexing...with what software/reader? Thanks!

            Has there been any kind of solution to this? Response from Autodesk?

              A little birdie told me that my (and others) incessant whining about it has possibly advanced the priority of this issue. Hoping to see a resolution in the next update, when they get to doing that. Vague as I can be...

                    If Texan...they'd be BIG too... then again little birdies die first in the mine. I'm hoping this birdie is both correct and sturdy! Texan would probably help. Guess we'll really see once the next update is made available. Fingers, toes and legs crossed.
