Better Point Cloud import

A grayscale point cloud is imported like a all Black point cloud into Archicad 23 or 22.
Into Archicad :

The same point cloud into CloudCompare allow to show these shades of grey by the same e57 file.
Into CloudCompare :

Since Archicad 19 it is possible to import an point cloud but few years later it is always hard or sometimes impossible to use it.

This problem with black point cloud occurs when you are using grayscale point cloud. If you use colour (i.e. include photography during scan - I don't know how exactly it works) - it looks absolutely fine.

There is also German Add-On for for advanced point cloud import into ArchiCAD. Called BIMm Tool. There I think they solved this problem.
