Point Clouds in Grasshopper (Volvox)

Right out of the gate I’m having issues with using Volvox for Rhino7-Grasshopper. Specifically loading E57 files. The load component is bringing in my file significantly scaled down. I haven’t come up with an answer to why online, nor by attempting to start from a different unit format.

My work around has been to import the point cloud directly into rhino at which point the rest of the components work just fine. Very helpful tool for processing point clouds.

Curious if anyone has experienced this and has a solution.

Hi Sharris,
I’m having a similar issue, where the LOAD E57 component (I tried all 3) actually do nothing.
In one instance it gave me an error
Solution exception:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

But I closed Rhino and opened it again, now it actually finds the path, but absolutely nothing loads into Rhino.

Again, like yourself, if I open the E57 directly with Rhino I can then do the other operations on it.
Very weird.

If you found a solution to this please post it.

I swapped over to Cockroach, link below.
