How to line up the remainder cloud with the exported Pipe model

Post by benzilliox » Thu Mar 28, 2019 3:36 pm

I'm having an issue lining up the exported revit pipe model and the remainder cloud. I can import the remainder cloud but it puts it to the side of the piping model. Is there a way to line these up other than visually moving the point cloud over top of the pipe model?

Thanks in advance.

How do you import the recap point cloud? usually "Origin to Origin" is the best if you have several point clouds to import.
If in your original drawing the point was imported as Center to center, it would be next to impossible to align it with the new point cloud.

When you send either the Remainder Cloud from EdgeWise or a point cloud from Recap into Revit so the cloud will align with an EdgeWise model, you will want to bring in the file "by shared coordinates" rather than "origin to origin"
