Enabling Streaming for Point Cloud and Raster References
ProjectWise integration with MicroStation lets users stream point cloud files and/or raster reference files on copy out. When streaming is enabled, only the portions of the file necessary to complete the view in MicroStation are downloaded. Additional portions are downloaded as necessary as the user pans and zooms. When streaming is disabled, the entire file is downloaded when it is copied out.
Point cloud streaming and raster reference streaming are licensed features which are disabled by default. To enable streaming, first enable streaming at the server level through DMSKRNL.CFG settings, then use the File Streaming datasource node in ProjectWise Administrator to enable streaming on a per datasource basis. You can also choose to enable streaming for one type of file and not the other — for example, enable streaming for raster references but not for point cloud references.
