How to Delete Index file for Point Cloud Data?

128 Views, 1 Replies

I'm hoping this could be a quick fix without completely re-installing CAD.


I jammed too much LiDAR data into my Index file for point cloud data, and now I can not even open it.  Even new drawings are trying to open the overall index with everything in it.


What I want to do is just delete the whole thing and start fresh again, but not sure how to do that.  If I could open it once I could start deleting stuff from it, but it is too large to even open.


Any help would be much appreciated!

welcome !


>> and now I can not even open it

Open it with ReCap or with Map3D, if Map3D do you mean open the drawing that has the point-cloud referenced or what do you mean exactly (what command) when you write "open it"?

What version of Map3D do you run?

And the most important: what message do you get when you "open it"?
