Let's dive into the complete process of creating an .rcp file while in ReCap Pro software and importing the point cloud into InfraWorks software, and see the step-by-step process of creating both a usable InfraWorks surface but also extracting features from your point cloud using both the new point cloud terrain and point cloud modeling tools within InfraWorks. The point cloud modeling tool is like your description keys in AutoCAD Civil 3D software, but instead of 2D blocks you'll get 3D features like power poles and trees automatically inserted into your model. We'll take you step by step through the process to help save you time.
