I wonder why we cant use point cloud when using nested RC objects.
Nor parent nor children.
If one needs using nested RC- it`is bound to become very heavy very fast- so Points-Cloud is preferred way of display.
Just like in Bookshelf tutorial.

For efficiency reasons, the point-cloud of each segment is computed only one time and cached. This can be done because in normal conditions their geometry doesn't change.
Instead, when using nested RC objects, the inner segment is rebuild on each iteration, so it should be necessary to compute the point-cloud as well, ruining the performance completely.
