Web Point Cloud Viewer is a proof of concept (POC) that enables users to upload, store, and preview point cloud data. Using the Autodesk® Forge™ platform, Web Point Cloud Viewer is integrated with Autodesk A360 cloud service.

Point cloud data, as the output format of 3D scanning processes, is now widely used in AEC, manufacturing, and engineering. Nevertheless, a limited number of applications allow users to process point cloud data online, as well as support collaboration options.

AMC Bridge created a POC of viewing point clouds integrated with Autodesk A360 cloud service. It enables users to store the processed point clouds, as well as convert 3D files to PDF and share large complex models.

The application provides the following options:

  • Upload new models to the storage.
  • Create a link to share a model by email, chat, or by embedding it directly into a site.
  • Change the model view, color, and scale.
  • Save and preview models.
  • Measure the distance, angle, and area of the whole model or its part.
  • Collaborate with other Forge users.

Using Forge as cloud storage also enables users to control file access, downloading and storing periods with permission features.

Currently, Web Point Cloud Viewer supports the following formats of point cloud data: PCD (ASCII, binary, and binary compressed), PTS, PTX, E57, LAS, LAZ, XYZ, TXT.
