    Default LiDAR Data Support

    Summary: Improve the process of working with LiDAR data in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

    Description: Wish AutoCAD Civil 3D can open huge LiDAR (in .las or .xyz format) data as an object entities similar to an FDO connections without opening the files but reading the files and can create surface and contours. At present, Civil 3D crashed all the time because of the size of LiDAR data.

    Thanks.

    How Used: Most of our 3D data derived from bare-earth LiDAR data and it would be great if AutoCAD could be improved in this area (LiDAR applications - loading, surface and contours generation or even point-cloud data classification if possible)

    Feature Affinity: Surface Modeling

    Default Re: LiDAR Data Support

    I have used this technique. I imported LIDAR data into a database and processed it from there. I wish I remembered where I got this tip. We also use map workspace to connect to it as raster data if we just want to show the data.
