Cintoo Cloud: Your Digital Twin Platform

Mesh-based laser scan data in the browser

Cintoo Cloud has integrated visual display modes in RGB, X-Ray, Height Map, Surface, and 2D Panoramic that bring a new viewing experience and reveal a granular level of detail in your laser scans in your browser (Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) with no plugin to install.

Back face culling and occlusion management tools enable you to see through the walls, floors, or ceilings without the need to clip the point cloud.

360° Images display (beta)

Capture and align 360° Images to document your job site and add them to your Cintoo Cloud project to complement your laser scans. Navigate then from scan to scan, or from scan to 360° Image, or from 360° Image to 360° Image inside Cintoo Cloud viewer.

Data Management

Use Cintoo Cloud to upload and download laser scans and CAD models. Organize scan data into different work zones and create crops. Then export a single scan, crop, work zone, or whole data set as a point cloud or unified mesh.

View your current projects and share them with an unlimited number of clients, suppliers, or team members. Give different people access to certain projects or even specific work zones. Assign different users with specific roles and permissions to manage what they are allowed to do within the project.

Access Control & User Management

Create different levels of access (owners/editors/visitors) for different types of project collaborators based on your project requirement, or the user’s level of technological complexity. You can control the access rights of each member of the project, and what areas of the projects they can access. Assign members with different levels of permission - from full access for your internal team, to restricted or, viewing only access for contractors or clients, depending on what you want them to be able to do in the project.

Sharing & Collaboration

Cintoo Cloud is a collaboration platform to manage, store, and share all your laser scan projects. You can assign a person or your entire team to work on a project.

All project members can share any project with other collaborators by inviting them to the project as Team Members (login / password required) or by sending an URL to access the Shared Viewer. The Shared Viewer provides a very easy navigation experience and can be embedded in a web page.

Distribute & Export Scan Data

A set of scans, work zones, or your full project can be downloaded from Cintoo Cloud and reverse-transformed back into point clouds, either as a structured E57 file (keeping the structure of the scan project with the vantage points, the depth maps, the panoramic images and the point cloud), or as a unified RCP/RCS file. Unified Meshes can also be computed in the cloud from crops (sections, rooms, equipment...) and downloaded from Cintoo Cloud in OBJ, FBX or STL format.

For Scan-to-BIM operations, Cintoo Cloud is the solution to distribute your scan data over the cloud to whoever needs to access it.

Work Zones

Laser scans that are spread over the entire project can be organized in floors, regions, or rooms. By assigning them to Work Zones and sub-Work Zones in Cintoo Cloud. Access to these Work Zones can be managed for each Team Member separately. CAD and BIM model can also be uploaded in their dedicated Work Zone(s), making it easier to display or to be selected for comparison and QA/QC.

Assigning scans to separate Work Zones makes it easier to download and distribute the scan data. It allows to limit the size of the point cloud to be displayed in the desktop CAD software.

Site Maps

Sites Maps are background images that will help locate and navigate the scans and the 360° images. A Site Map may correspond to a 2D plan that has been scanned, a Google Earth, a Google Maps, a Bing Map or an orthographic drone view of the site. You can align and scale your Site Map to your scans using Cintoo Cloud’s 2D and 3D alignment tools. Site Maps are displayed in the 2D and 3D Views and in the Navigation Map

Slice / Crop

Advanced cropping features allow you to select the slices of scan data that will help for modeling or to get 2D plans.

Cropping can be performed on the X, Y, or Z axes separately or cumulatively. Crops can be saved, edited, and exported into either a Unified Mesh in OBJ, FBX or STL format or as a point cloud in Unified RCP/RCS format for consumption in your favorite CAD software.

Measuring & Annotations

Point to point measurements can be performed with great accuracy in Cintoo Cloud, where our unique Surface display mode allows you to pick the exact 3D points needed for those measurements.

Annotations can also be added, that are notes, private notes or issues. Those annotations can be enriched with metadata such as text, photo, video, URL or PDF. Private notes and issues can be assigned to Team Members.

Measurements and annotations can be exported in a PDF report. Issues can also be exported in BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) file to be used in your favorite issue tracking platform.

Scan-model / Scan-scan Comparison

BIM models can be uploaded from your disk to Cintoo Cloud in IFC format or pulled from Autodesk BIM 360 Docs in as Revit, Navisworks, or IFC files.

If the scans and the BIM model are not in the same coordinate system, Cintoo Cloud provides an alignment tool for this purpose.

Scans and BIM can then be visually compared to detect issues in a QA/QC process. Those issues can be documented and exported as BCF files for virtual coordination and project review.

The same comparison tool can also be used to compare two sets of scans and monitor progress.

Unified Mesh / Mesh Export

You can unify the high-resolution meshes coming from selected scans in a photo-textured 3D mesh, leveraging the power of cloud computing. This Cintoo Unified Mesh can be created from up to 100 scans with a user-defined mesh density, and exported in OBJ, FBX, or STL format. Ideal for desktop modeling and clash detection, Unified Meshes retain the original point cloud’s 3D coordinate system, are smaller in size than the source point cloud, and remove the ambiguity of identifying surfaces or objects from disconnected 3D points.

VR Streaming

Translating laser point clouds to surfaces makes them ready to be displayed using Virtual Reality devices. Cintoo’s technology creates added value for Virtual Reality projects by fast streaming the 3D mesh at the highest possible resolution from each of the project’s scanning positions.


Using WebVR and Mozilla Firefox, you can get an immersive and stereoscopic VR experience directly from Cintoo Cloud.

VR users can use the RGB, Surface, and X-Ray display modes and also choose to stream a mix of scan data and BIM content (with a choice to display them separately or together). They can also make distance or point to point measurements. Cintoo Cloud VR is compatible with both Oculus Rift/S and HTC Vive Pro VR equipment.

Cintoo Cloud to Unreal / Unity

Using the Cintoo SDK, you can also stream Cintoo Cloud’s high-resolution, mesh-based scan data into Unity or Unreal game engines to create rich, immersive and collaborative Scan & BIM or Scan & CAD experiences: simulations, clearance checking, project review, team training… You may start from Cintoo plugin for Unreal Editor for a fast implementation using the Unreal Engine.

Tablet Viewer

Cintoo Cloud tablet viewer (iOS, Android, Windows) enables your team to access high resolution scans and BIM models in the field and add notes and photos or to make 3D measurements.
