Go to Plugins forum http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=323 and search for "point cloud"

Nothing is worthless, it can always be used as a bad example.

I tried importing terrain pointclouds a year ago but several plugins failed due to the large number of points. I ended up opening the data in Meshlab, create a mesh and export as dxf to sketchup.

yes but (as far as I know) it only works for clouds from their own brand laser scanners.

Hi,

Yes, I agree that the first Undet for SketchUp version had a lot of bugs, but this software is constantly developing. The latest version is stable.

Undet software is constantly developed. Now we are supporting SketchUp versions: 2017, 2018, 2019. Last releases of Undet for SketchUp plug-in are stable for professional work with very attractive licensing :knockout:

It is currently the only add-on in the market, allowing you to use any size point clouds directly in SketchUp. ;)

I would hardly expect any software company to claim anything other than having a great price for their products. Your saying it, does not make it so.

Hi Mike, If you have any other option to work with point clouds in SketchUp with better-licensing options and price list please share it with us. I believe that 50€ - 1-month license without further commitment is an attractive price and allows companies to easily expand when needed. ;)

I would rather wait for users to make the claim than the company that makes the product. Gerald Ratner comes to mind.

Suggestions;
1) Didier Bur's truly excellent points cloud plugin (Cloud v8.0bxx) is excellent and well supported - get it from the plug-in store. Fredo's Toposhaper will generate surfaces from that data.
2) If you need to do more work on it, import and preprocess in a GIS like QGIS and then export as a shapefile and import that into SU using the Spirix shapefile importer (https://sites.google.com/site/spirixcod ... ects=0&d=1).

Ive been using QGIS to match up LIDAR generated 2m contours with imagery and align to the same CRS. Importing using the shapefile importer has required some simple scaling but gives good results.
