Point Cloud not displaying correctly in Revit 2012

Hi All,

 

I am having some issues with the point cloud in Revit 2012.  Everytime I import the scan cloud it doesn't fully appear.  Only a small part of it appears.  When I rotate round or zoom in and out it sometimes flicks in and out of visibility.  See attached image.

 

I have downloaded the latest service pack for Revit but it still doesn't work.  Is it to do with the computer I am running it on and the graphics card I have.  See below for the sepc of my computer:

 

Dell Precision M6400

Intel Core 2 Quad CPU

Q9100 @ 2.26GHz

1.58 GHz, 3.48 GB of RAM

Running Windows XP 32bit

NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M

 

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

 

Try unchecking the 3d Hardware acceleration (Direct3D) under Options, close then reopen the file.  We had this same problem at my company and this did the trick.  G'luck!
