The Cintoo Cloud Platform

Find out why Cintoo Cloud is the hub for all of your reality data and digital twin workflows and collaboration needs.

The Cintoo Solution

Cintoo Cloud is a cloud-based Reality Data management and collaboration platform. By transforming large point cloud data into 3D meshes, the data is now shareable, collaborative, and distributable with clients, contractors and your own teams.

The point cloud data can then be manipulated in 3D by anyone equipped with a standard laptop and a WebGL browser.​ Cintoo Cloud is available on Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services, or can be deployed on private data centers behind secured firewalls.

Cintoo Connect is a Windows client that connects desktops to Cintoo Cloud. From desktop to cloud, it is used for scan project translation into Cintoo Reality Data and for fast upload to Cintoo Cloud. From cloud to desktop, Cintoo Connect will download Cintoo Reality Data and inversely translate it into point cloud data for consumption by most CAD software.


Transforming Point Cloud to Surfaces

Cintoo has developed a unique point cloud-to-surface, surface-to point cloud technology (US patent pending). This translation keeps the project structure (scanning position, panoramic views), has no limit in terms of project size, and does not compromise the survey-grade accuracy of the source data. By translating to surfaces, laser scan panoramas are not only viewed as images with depth, but as 3D models as well.

With this new type of Reality Data, the upload and download times and the need for storage space are reduced since this surface-based Reality Data is 10 to 20 times lighter than the source point cloud!


Fast Mesh Streaming in Web Browsers

Once uploaded to the cloud, Cintoo’s multi-resolution and compressed Reality Data can be streamed very fast based on the user’s point of view in Cintoo Cloud’s proprietary viewer. This viewer runs on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge (V79 or higher) without any plug-in required. This fast mesh streaming technology make the scan data easily available on any laptop / desktop, tablet / smartphones (iOS, Android) or Virtual Reality headsets (Oculus Rift or Rift S, HTC Vive Pro).


Convert Surfaces Back to Point Clouds

Cintoo can also revert surfaces back into point clouds with the same accuracy as the original point cloud source file that was uploaded. Cintoo Reality Data will first be downloaded and then be transformed back into Autodesk ReCap RCP format for consumption by Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, or in E57 format for use in any other CAD and Scan-to-BIM software.


The Cintoo Unified Mesh

Cintoo Cloud can merge the various high-resolution meshes coming from each scan into a single mesh, leveraging the power of cloud computing. This unification process will take the best contribution of each scan for each area of the project and will add the photo-texture to the resulting Unified Mesh. The user will need to select the mesh density and export format (OBJ, FBX, STL) prior to running the process. Once completed, the user is being notified by email that the Unified Mesh is ready for download.

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. The mesh’s connected structure makes processing times much faster, provides more robust results and offer greater scalability.


BIM Platform Interoperability

BIM 360 interoperability extends the scan and BIM capabilities by enabling you to push RVT, NWD, 3D DWG, and IFC from BIM 360 to Cintoo Cloud and compare these models with scan data.


Hardware & Software Agnostic

Registration of the source laser scans can happen in any point cloud software. Cintoo Connect will then import these structured scan projects using E57, Autodesk RCP or Faro FLS / LSPROJ format. Once processed and translated in Cintoo format, the project is then uploaded to Cintoo Cloud. E57 and RCP / RCS formats are available as export formats when reverting Reality Data back into point cloud format.


Reality Data Management in the Cloud

You can 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.


Public & Hybrid Cloud Models

Cintoo provides flexibility around cloud options, and gives you the option to host your data on Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), the two largest providers of cloud services globally.

You can select the data center geography where your data will be hosted for privacy requirements or let the data be hosted anywhere in the cloud to improve streaming performances. You can also choose from several government-authorized datacenters that meet the US government’s strict regulatory, security and compliance requirements and are designed to host sensitive workloads in the cloud.

Cintoo Cloud is also available as a hybrid model, and can be installed in your organization’s private cloud.
