Hello Graphisoft Community,

I'm exploring options to convert different file formats into LCF (Library Container File).

Is there a straightforward method or API available to convert point cloud files into LCF format?

If there are any available libraries, or resources that can aid in this conversion, I would greatly appreciate any insights or recommendations.
Thank you,
Cad Developer

but your question was if there is a api call that does excatly that. i dont think so. you need to write a interpreter. create mashes. create a library part from the mesh and so on...
