I'm trying to access the style manager to allow classifying LiDAR point cloud based on elevation. I have been able to attached the point cloud and see it on the drawing. For some reason I can't see the Point Cloud Menu, which I believe should be showing up beside "Express" menu on the top toolbar.
Any suggestions? I have AutoCAD Map 3D 2011.
Are you using the Ribbon or just the old classic menus? What workspace are you in? Unless you manually create the menu item in the CUI I don't think there is a Point Cloud on it only on the ribbon.
I've tried to customize the UI and I couldn't find the tool listed for Style Manager to change the way the Point Cloud is displayed. I have attached a .pcg file.
I'm in the classic and both of the ribbon based workspaces. I've attached the the screenshot from the video showing how to work with point clouds, as compared to how it looks on my desktop.
Any thoughts on why I can't find these tools to work with the point cloud?
The "video" screen capture is of Autocad vanilla not of AutoCAD Map3D. Two different UI.
If you have the map task pane open and select the point cloud in the display manager the "Contexual tab" should open on the ribbon.
I think we're getting close, and relieved to hear that the feature is included in Map 3D. I tried clicking on the layer in the Display Manager, however the point cloud menu was still not visible. Please see screen capture attached.
Any other ideas on how to get access to the style options for the 3D point cloud? I would like to adjust the colour based on the elevation, as it is very hard to visualize all the grey dots on the screen.
