Easily share your projects with anyone, anywhere. All they need is a web browser.
Export all of your project data bundled into an easy-to-use program that can be shared with anyone through email or your favorite file sharing application. The recipient only needs to run the program, and in seconds they can view the project in their web browser.
Customize your project with whatever data you would like your recipients to see, such as point clouds, imagery, tags, and bookmarks
Recipients just need to start the program, then in seconds they will be viewing the project, exactly as you saw it, in their browser. They can then navigate through the project just like in Engine.
Cloud Sharing (Optional)
With just a couple of clicks, you can upload your project to the optional cloud sharing module for an even easier sharing experience. Invite other users to your project by email, or send them a link to the project directly. All they need is a web browser.
The cloud sharing module supports multiple configurations, including on-premise* and cloud hosting.
*on-premise is not available if you choose pay-as-you-go (SaaS)
There are three levels of user access to Engine Cloud Share projects:
- Licensed Engine users
- Named Cloud Share users (both “administrators” and “standard” users)
- Unnamed Cloud Share users (view only users)
Licensed Engine Users
Regular Engine users (those with a valid license) can create and manage their own projects in the Cloud Share portal. They can invite other Engine users, named cloud share users, and unnamed (view only) cloud share users. Engine users can add and remove data to their project at any time.
Named Cloud Share Users (Admin)
A “named Cloud Share user (admin)” user is a user who has been invited to a project by an Engine user and given project administration rights. They can log into the Cloud Share project to view it, create tags and bookmarks in it, take measurements in it, and invite other users to the project. They cannot upload data to projects. They cannot create projects in the Cloud Share portal. There is an unlimited number of named Cloud Share users available in Engine Cloud Share.
Named Cloud Share Users (Standard)
A “named Cloud Share user (standard)” is a user who has been invited to a project by an Engine user and has not been given project administration rights. They can do everything the “named Cloud Share user (admin)” can do, except manage other users’ access to the project. There is an unlimited number of named Cloud Share users available in Engine Cloud Share.
Unnamed Cloud Share Users (View Only Users)
An unnamed Cloud Share user is someone with a link to an Engine Cloud Share project that has View Only enabled. The user can use the link to view the project and take measurements but they cannot create tags or bookmarks in it. Engine Cloud Share allows an unlimited number of unnamed cloud share users.
Local Sharing vs Cloud Sharing
Different projects require different types of sharing. Some projects require fast and simple sharing, while others require secure access for a large number of users. Here are some tips on when to use local sharing and when to use cloud sharing.
DIY Cloud Share vs SaaS Cloud Share
If you decide to share data using our cloud module, but do not want to host the module yourself, we can provide the module to you on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis. We host your data and your cloud module on our Infrastructure. If you decide that cloud sharing is strategic for your business or if you have data security needs that requires your data to stay local to your own network, you can purchase the cloud module under a perpetual license and run it yourself.
