Aize, a provider of digital-twin software for heavy-asset industries, and Cintoo, a provider of reality-capture solutions, have teamed up in a bid to boost the performance of digital twins within industries such as construction and engineering.

Cintoo says its Cintoo Cloud platform will play an “integral” role in enhancing the user experience of Aize software, bringing as-built conditions into the Aize workflows and optimising companies’ transition to digital-twin programs.

The Cintoo API has been used to provide a cloud-to-cloud connection between the two platforms and to offer data access for facilities captured via laser scanning, facilitating search, filtering, and visualisation automation.

Reality-capture technologies such as 3D laser scanning are often used to provide a foundational layer for capturing the actual state of spaces and objects condition.

This can give digital twins the fidelity they need to drive asset management workflows, run simulation scenarios, and provide users with an easy-to-navigate view of an asset.

‘Important step’

Aize CCO Anders Brun said: “Having the opportunity to work closely with a seasoned and trusted company like Cintoo is a significant advantage for Aize.

“Our users are eager to seamlessly access a wide variety of data in their digital twin, and being able to visualise and work with reality capture data leveraging the Cintoo Cloud platform is an important step.

“I anticipate exploring the ways in which we can generate greater value for our existing partners and beyond.”

Dominique Pouliquen, Cintoo CEO, said: “Partnering with Aize…is a major step towards the integration of as-built reality capture data in various digital twin and asset management workflows.

“We are looking forward to leveraging this integration between Aize and Cintoo Cloud platforms to serve our customers with the most advanced technologies in this space.”

Cintoo, based in France and the USA, develops Cintoo Cloud, a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution used to manage 3D scanned data collected from real-world spaces for companies working in AEC, Digital Twin, and Industry 4.0.

Aize, based in Norway, the UK, and the USA, develops a digital twin workspace that helps enable capital projects and operations in the energy industry.
