Does anyone know what the file size limit is for importing point clouds into Inventor? Or is that a how long is a piece of string question that depends on computer ability?

Or, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop.  :smileylol:

Don't know.  But maybe if you contact someone in the Autodesk 360 group they might be able to give you some direction on this.

I think this would be better served under ReCap.  Or,
