Make some room! Hotfix coming through for a Point Cloud 2011 issue.



image22Alert! Alert! Alert!    Notice that after adding point cloud data to the Point Cloud Manager, the assigned Coordinate System is set to <None>  and the Generate index button is ghosted out preventing us to import.

Now!!! Autodesk has published a Hotfix supporting AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 for both operating systems, 32 bit and 64 bit. Be sure to follow instructions from the Readme.pdf from that publication.

Signing off, have a great week!
