Summary

Leading architecture and planning company improves 3D web viewer user experience for synchronised web-based 3D Model and Point Cloud Viewer.

About the Client

A leading architecture and planning company providing a wide range of consulting services to optimize design, construction and operation processes at all stages of a built asset’s life cycle. The company provides various services from technology implementation to industry transformation including Digital Twin, Smart Cities, BIM – Building Information Modelling, VDC – Virtual Design and Construction, and beyond.

The Goal

The client needed to create a web application with easy data access and fast conversion of point cloud file into the Potree web viewer compatible format. In addition, the client required an option to load and compare both viewers in synchronization within a single-window providing 360 Degree viewing functions with easy rotation, zoom and navigation.

Solution

  • We created 3D web viewer UI for loading point cloud and 3D model in a single window with various file format compatibility    
  • nCircleTech created functionality to upload data to Amazon S3 buckets and process the same through the client’s server translating it to a web viewer with the compatible file format.    
  • We created a function to store translated point cloud data on the Amazon S3 Bucket so that users can viewpoint cloud data along with the Revit model side by side. 
  • Enhanced UI of the application providing options to use navigation synchronization on both the viewers to be compared in a single window.
  • We used the node server web app to start point cloud file conversion into Potree compatible format using the .exe programs hosted over the server.

Benefits

  • Support for multiple point cloud formats with easy access/upload of the projects 
  • 360-degree viewing function with easy rotation, zoom and navigation    
  • Synchronised comparison between BIM Model and Point Cloud Model in a single panel
  • Covering minute details of the model for better auditing with easy navigation 

Impact

  • Improved auditing functionality with comparison mode
  • Anytime anywhere access of the user-friendly viewer
