In revit 2013 I have used the point cloud (exported from Faro Scene and imported in revit 2013) without any problems. This time (another project) I have deleted some points with Recap of the cloud after edit with faro scene. Now I have imported the *.rcs files into revit 2014 and I have some serious problems...
With diffenernt zoom levels some areas of the point cloud disappear. On the picture is only one pointcloud visible. If I click on it, it dont look like one, but it is really only one. And the disappearing areas are rectangles. The same problem is on floor plans.
I'm having this same point cloud disappearing/clipping effect with Revit 2014. It's only with the .RCS file format. PCG files still display correctly, but Revit forces them to be converted to .RCS files. A temporary work around until Autodesk gives this issue some attention, is to import .PCG files into an older version of Revit, save, and then reopen your project in 2014. Now you can trace and create your walls to the point cloud. Try to link all the point clouds you are going to use in the older version of Revit, because if you try to add them later in 2014, it will force a conversion to .RCS and you'll have the same problem once again.
I'm attaching a .mp4 video clip showing the clipping problem. It happens the most when zooming in and out.
I know this is a little late, but I've experienced similar things in Revit 2012 with PCG files. It usually happens because of an error with processing the PCG file where the tail end of the file is cut off. Revit still recognizes it, but it misses the macro zoom information. Usually it happens when I download a PCG file from our FTP that did not get completely uploaded. The solution would be to re-export the point cloud file and make sure that it is complete. Check the file size to see if it checks out.
