Hi Forumtrying to import a Leica .bin point cloud into AECOSim V.08.11.09.593 SS4 and the conversion process allows me to open the conversion box, but them once i allow it to convert, what looks like from the .bin to a .pod file, it says 'Convert Failed'.2 screen shots to follow. SS1 below shows an error about different units. This .bin point cloud is a from a client so initially i thought i'll change my working file this is being imported into [its blank] so the untis match. did this now it says: 'Convert Failed' again, but i dont see any clues on how what or why? Any help?
Yes you are right all point cloud needed to be converted to the POD file format.
I have tried to convert your .bin file with MicroStation without success. Since this seems to be a .bin to .pod conversion problem I would suggest that you post your question here : communities.bentley.com/.../254815.aspx.
Also you could try to check if the conversion can be done with our PODCreator, which can be downloaded for free from here : www.bentley.com/.../Bentley+Pointools+PODcreator.htm.
PODcreator fails with this bin file
PS: you'll need Cyclone for that
