Enhanced Platform Gives AEC Sector and Building Owners New Tools for Building Smarter
San Jose, CA, June 8, 2021 — Cupix, the fast-growth pioneer of cutting-edge 3D digital twin solutions for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries and building owners, today announced the availability of CupixWorks 2.0, a major update to its leading product, CupixWorks.
CupixWorks 2.0 is the industry’s most advanced 3D digital twin platform, enabling building owners, general contractors and project managers to build smarter, transforming any construction site into an easy-to-manage project, creating value across the entire life cycle of a property. Requiring only a consumer-grade 360-degree camera, CupixWorks 2.0 is the fastest and easiest way to create and share a best-in-class 3D digital twin, whether for a relatively simple commercial building, a highly complex facility, or an external infrastructure project like roads and bridges.
Product enhancements integrated in the CupixWorks 2.0 platform include automated 3D spatial information extraction and editing tools which enable 3D spatial intelligence-based site management, comprehensive BIM data support, and secure collaboration and data access controls. Available via a usage-based pricing model that is unique for the industry, the new platform features a completely redesigned digital-twin viewer for easier integration with third-party vendors, more streamlined LiDAR data support, and drone-mounted 360 image sequence capture and support.
“In a world where surprises and complications are commonplace and costly, our solutions give customers the collaboration, confidence and control they need to stay on time, on budget, and on target,” said Simon Bae, Cupix Founder and CEO. ”Cupix is excited to bring our pioneering 3D expertise to market and to empower contractors and owners everywhere to build smart. Our vision goes beyond traditional 3D digital twins or even smart cities. We want to help the world build smarter.”
Easy-to-Use Enhanced Platform
While manufacturing has begun to embrace digital twin technology, construction remains largely a 2D industry and one that hungers for technological innovation. With 3D visual digital twin technology, off-site experts now have access to on-site views into the nitty-gritty of projects—taking off where Google street view ends. Cupix customers have found that use of 3D digital twin technology makes it easier to manage the multiple complexities inherent in projects. And as the technology evolves it has the potential to help identify problems before they occur.
Other enhanced features in CupixWorks 2.0 include customizable, enterprise-ready data security and access management tools, multi-cloud storage options for building and design files, and ready-to-use hardware kits and self-service templates that enable quick onboarding for both technical and non-technical users.
Expanding North American Presence
The availability of CupixWorks 2.0 will drive Cupix’s continued growth in the North American market amid general contractors, architecture firms, and facilities management companies, as well as retailers and manufacturers. Cupix’s first quarter revenue was up 300% year-over-year and the company has more than tripled its U.S. headcount in the past six months, while expanding its staff in South Korea.
Cupix, founded in 2015 by global pioneers in the fields of 3D scan data processing software and cloud-based 3D applications, is expanding in the U.S. just as companies across multiple sectors undertake massive renovations in the wake of the Biden Administration’s $2 trillion push to upgrade the country’s physical infrastructure.
Cupix’s mission is to empower contractors and owners everywhere to build smart. It offers the industry’s most flexible and easiest-to-deploy 3D digital twin platform for general contractors, owners and property managers. Whether for basic residential and commercial buildings, complex and highly technical facilities, or even roads and infrastructure projects, Cupix’s solutions save time and money, eliminate surprises and empower secure collaboration across the entire lifecycle of any property. Founded in 2015, Cupix is based in San Jose, Calif.
