Follow these steps to import 3D models from Autodesk BIM360 or Autodesk Construction Cloud into your Cintoo Cloud projects. 

1. Open the Cintoo project in which you want to upload a model, and navigate to the desired Work Zone where the model will be imported, or create a new Work Zone folder.

2. Click the "Import models" button under the Model from ACC box or select "Import models from ACC" from the drop-down menu on the top right side of the screen. 

3. Login or authorize your Autodesk account to make the connection between BIM360/ACC and the Cintoo Cloud app. 

4. The connected Autodesk account should now appear in the "Import models" window. Your username and available Hubs will be displayed. Click the Hub name and navigate through your projects and folder structure to locate the model file/s to import into Cintoo. 

5. Click on the model file/s to import into Cintoo. You will be notified by email once the selected model is ready to view in Cintoo Cloud. 

  • When importing a Revit (.rvt) file, you will be asked to select either "Shared Coordinates" or "Origin to Origin" for positioning the model in Cintoo.

  • When importing a Navisworks (.nwd/.nwc) file, the model will be positioned based on the file reader settings used when the files were appended in the Navisworks project.
  • When importing an IFC, JT, DWG, DGN, STP, or STEP file, the model will be positioned based on the settings used when exporting or generating the file in the model authoring software.
