You may want to:
- Either upload all your scans at once and then organize and assign them to various Work Zones afterwards.
- Or create Work Zones first and upload your scans in each one of them if you know already the organization of such data (for example: upload all level 1 scans in a Work Zone named ‘Level 1’, then all level 2 scans in Work Zone ‘Level 2’, etc.).
You may also want to create a Work Zones to host all your scans (you may call it ‘All Scans’) before eventually assigning them to sub-Work Zones.
Creating Work Zones
Select the project in which you want to create one or more Work Zones.
At the top right, select then ‘Create a Work Zone.’.
Fill the form (only the name is mandatory):
Click on “My Projects” in the top bar, click on the project in which you want to upload data, and eventually select the Work Zone in which you want to upload scans.
Click on on “Prepare and upload” from the top right of the window to start uploading scans.
Or you can also click on “Prepare and upload” from the middle of the window:
This will start Cintoo Connect on your computer:
Select your RCP (Autodesk ReCap), FLS (Faro), LSPROJ (Faro Scene project) or E57 data. Please note that either your RCP, FLS, LSPROJ or your E57 data must be a structured project (i.e. it must include the location of each scan, the panoramic images, depth maps and the point cloud.)
- Please check our video to understand the difference between a structured scan project and a unified or unstructured scan project:
Once the RCP, FLS, LSPROJ or E57 file has been selected, click on “Import”. The process should start right away (translation to Cintoo Reality Data first and upload next).
On average, please allow around 1 to 2 min for the processing of one scan of 10 Million pixels, 5 min for 40 Million pixels, and about 25 min for 160 Million pixels (times may vary depending on your computer).
You may process more than 2 scans (default setting) in parallel if you have a multi-core machine (up to 8 scans):
Change the scale factor only if you have been told to do so by the Surveyor. This scale factor expresses the difference between the local coordinate system that you need for your scans and your models, and the geographical coordinate system (such as a State Plane Coordinate System) used during the capture process.
Regarding ‘Upload enabled’:
- It is toggled by default, thus enabling the mesh-based scans to be uploaded automatically once the point cloud-to-mesh transformation is completed.
- If ‘Upload enabled’ is unchecked, the point cloud-to-mesh transformation will happen locally on your computer, but the resulting mesh-based scans will not be uploaded. You will need to resume Cintoo Connect to upload your mesh-based scans later, for example when you have access to high speed Internet.
Once a first scan has been uploaded, you can see the data in Cintoo Cloud by going to Data, Overview Map or 3D View tabs. You may need to refresh the page to see the list of scans already uploaded.
