A local machine is best
All point cloud data is very large (it usually runs from 2GB up to 70GB and sometimes more). While the local machine is the best place to use point cloud data from, it must be checked for adequate space to handle the files sizes before downloading.
Point cloud data can be stored on your servers, but the RCS files for use in Revit or AutoCAD should be located on the local machine in order to allow the Autodesk software to more quickly refresh views.
