TruePoint empowered by Cintoo Cloud
”With Cintoo Cloud, we can take massive amounts of laser scan data and organize it for clients to utilize collaboratively.”
TruePoint has been providing 3D laser scanning and modeling services to the AEC industry since
2011. The company has quickly become an industry leader, providing accurate data and superior
service to clients.
In an effort to optimize delivery time and leverage quality control, traditional project
workflows have come under scrutiny, such as time spent uploading to file sharing services,
and/or copying data to hard drives. A reduction in time allows for more robust quality
control and faster delivery to its clients.
TruePoint needed a cloud-based platform to expedite the delivery of laser scan data
to clients and allow them to view scans from their web browsers. TruePoint has been
using Cintoo Cloud since it was developed; in fact, the team helped beta test the
”Cintoo Cloud is the best platform we have seen that allows
clients to view the actual data streaming online. We can upload data, and clients are able
to view it in minutes. It is an intuitive and easy-to-learn platform with tools to invite
users, create team members and set access rights,” explains Aaron.
The biggest benefits for the team are:
Leica & NavVis laser scanners
Autodesk Software: Revit & BIM 360
When plant engineers at a pet food packaging facility needed to make modifications,
they asked TruePoint to provide as-built documentation and a 3D model to plan retrofits
to the existing structure. The project site consisted of 140,000 sq. ft. of interior space,
including warehouse space, packing equipment, a central palletizer, semi-truck loading bays
and material storage. TruePoint documented and modeled all architectural and structural
features, equipment, conduit and piping.
Project stakeholders were spread out over the United States. TruePoint uploaded the point
cloud data and model to Cintoo Cloud, enabling collaboration to plan facility modifications.
The plant engineers used the BIM model to begin design planning, complete virtual
interference checks, estimate project costs and avoid rework.
TruePoint continues to use Cintoo Cloud as an efficient delivery system for its projects.
It aids its clients with IT restrictions and those who do not have the machines or software
to view and manipulate large files. It also offers them an online workspace in which to collaborate.
Instead of relying on file sharing sites or shipping hard drives to distribute data, the team can
easily upload laser scan data and models for clients. They refer to the online user guide,
following the steps and screenshots for navigating and viewing the Cintoo Cloud project console,
tool bar and workflows.
”We believe that in a fast-moving construction environment, team communication
and resolving project issues quickly are imperative and Cintoo Cloud is a vital part of this process.”
