I've written a small bit of .NET code to access the currently open document and add some PointCloudInstances based on some .pcg files. Here is the equivalent in IronPython:
type = PointCloudType.Create(doc, 'pcg', file)
PointCloudInstance.Create(doc, type.Id, Transform.Identity)
What I need help with is scaling these and also performing the equivalent of the "Auto - Origin to Last Placed". The procedure our employees use to insert point clouds is:
1. Insert first point cloud and change scale to 3.2 (or 1:3.2, whichever it is).
2. Insert remaining point clouds with "Auto - Origin to Last Placed".
I assume this is all done through the Transform argument passed to PointCloudInstance.Create(). Any hints or nudges in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
Figured out the scale part -- PointCloudType has a property called Scale, go figure. I was looking for a way to change the default scale for all point clouds as done through the edit type dialog in Revit.
