Good Afternoon, I am currently drawing elevations from a point cloud clipping which was acquired by a FARO Scanner. As I am drawing the elevation from the point cloud data, the point cloud as well as the line work which has been produced, is moving side to side and shifting out of place. See this link for video of this happening: Does anyone know why this is happening and what to do to resolve this issue? Thank you in advance for your help
Hey everyone! First of all, thanks to those of you who take the time to respond to questions on this forum. I've been using AutoCAD only for about two months now, and I can't tell you how valuable the information on this forum has been in helping me learn how to use the software. With that said, I have a problem/solution regarding which I was hoping to get some opinion. I've been tasked with creating electronic versions of some older AutoCAD drawings for which only hard copies exist. There are a lot of them, so in an effort to expedite the process I thought I would try to scan the drawings and scale them appropriately so that I could just go through and trace the lines. I was planning on doing some sanity-checks of the measurements in the AutoCAD and actual drawings as well. This would save me the time of having to measure the length and angle between each of the lines on the drawing (to which there are wild variations) before drawing them in AutoCAD. The problem is that these drawings were printed on some really large paper (Ex: 4ft by 6ft), so I can't really use a desktop scanner. My thought was that I could mount the drawings on a wall and take photographs of them using my camera instead. I would use the photographs to trace lines in AutoCAD. I was curious as to what you guys think of this approach, and whether any of you have experience with such a project and had alternative solutions. Thanks for your help! By the way, I'm using AutoCAD 2012, although I don't believe that matters.
