New to the Forum? Please introduce yourself DanSmigrod 463 21 hoursnatcoalson (22): Howdy everyone, I'm Nat. Born in Wyoming, grew up in Colorado, lived in Los Angeles... now living in the Midlands of England. Quite a culture shock. But I love travel and experiencing different places; really it's my life. I've been a fine art/travel photographer since around 2003 and more recently got into shooting architecture and interiors. (Before that I worked in graphic design, printing and web - feel free to Google me for more on my...

Floor Plans without Matterport Tour Dolloff 7 36 minutesChemistrydoc (145): Before Matterport, I created floor plans using MagicPlan. The built in measurer was most definitely not accurate enough, but I used a laser ruler that could bluetooth connect to the iPad/ app. Even with that, the process is tedious, especially if you measure the full dimensions of all windows and doors, kitchen counters, appliances, fixtures, etc etc. At $9.99 a month, it's a cheap service, but be prepared to invest time to do it. Also does not...
How many Matterport Spaces Scanned Annually? DanSmigrod 2 3 hoursCLE3D (136): Good morning! In the last 12 months, I've done just over 250 spaces totalling just shy of 1mil sq ft. Matterport tours are our primary product sold with most everything else being add-ons to increase revenue per sale and compliment the MP business. Almost all of my new business comes from word of mouth or agents finding a tour attached to a current listing and triggering them to find out more info. As we move thru 2017, we're actually...

How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 9 13 hoursVTLV (151): That's what I'm digging into. Trying to match file names I see on the server like obj files and seeing if similar names exist in either file. Unfortunately "Control F" isn't available. lol I'm not coming up with an order in the Jobs file. At the end of the list, I have some external 360's of some homes I took recently and in the middle and beginning I see the same thing. I'm not well versed on Mac. So this is all on the PC version....

Video in mattertags - krispy kreme RobinLycka 22 21 hoursDanSmigrod (8620): @Metroplex360 And, BTW, it's annoying that Matterport does not acknoweldge your pioneering innovation in the use of their tech. For example, in this Matterport blog post, they write: "But most importantly, it was a first trial run using rich media Mattertag™ Posts as a custom developer-led build, bringing video and photography content inside of a Matterport Space. This custom effort - which is not yet available to the public -...
Gyro for Matterport showcase? natcoalson 5 21 hoursDanSmigrod (8620): @Metroplex360 Your initiatives are absolutely showing Matterport what's possible with their own tech and causing innovation to happen sooner. Too bad the Krispy Kreme is a one-off. I imagine that Matterport continues to be distracted - Japan and China for example – so that the tech team doesn't get the resources it needs to focus on APIs/SDKs that will add huge value - exponential growth - to the Matterport platform.

iPad 9.7 (2017) Vs iPad Pro Vs iPad Air 2 DanSmigrod 5 1 dayJonJ (631): I have used an ipad 4th gen, ipad air 2 and a mini 3. While processor speed is important, i don't think it is the limiting component when it comes to scan speed. Using a mini 3, I just finished scanning a 2000sqft house in 63 minutes with 57 scans. Oh yeah, i also had 3 misalignments due to intense light. I am a propnent of the mini due to weight considerations. Also battery life seems better. Just my 2 cents. Jon

Matterport: Construction Law-Damage Claims DanSmigrod 6 1 dayDanSmigrod (8620): @GarySnyder @jfantin @nat_vanveen Hi All, A lot of great thinking here. My takeaways ... 1. Understand the needs of the client. 2. Understand the scope of the work. 3. Don't use a screw driver to hammer nails. (Just because you have a Matterport camera, doesn't mean it's the right tool.) Dan
FREE Webinar on Floor Plan measures PetraSoderling 7 1 dayPetraSoderling (349): Thanks @DannyBasting I'll check it out. I also attended a Immoviewer/KoaWare webinar yesterday and they used something called QlickMeeting. It was pretty nice as well, no need to download separate clients and attendees remained anonymous which I think people will appreciate. But there were some technical challenges, as I suppose every platform has. (content of that webinar was 100% great though!)
Showcase v2.16.6 Metroplex360 3 1 dayMetroplex360 (3367): @craigsauer Absolutely! I am just concerned that I'm 'noticing' this, but that it's not a new feature :) I'm still an advocate of a larger, more obvious visual for 'Return to 3D Space'
EveryScape Phone App for Virtual Tours Woods 9 1 daysuncoastskyview (157): So far, I haven't seen anything that can compare with MP quality. I know it's only a matter of time before someone produces a good 3D VT camera that is faster and cheaper. Meanwhile, MP has a tremendous head-start and I give them a great deal of credit for continuing to develop the technology is such clever ways.

Why a Real Estate Broker is No Longer a MSP DanSmigrod 7 2 daysBale100 (7): In Spain becoming an MSP for Real Estate is a waste of time. Brokers generally do not have exclusivity for the properties they are selling or renting i.e. the owner has it listed with multiple agencies. The broker will not pay for 3D as they are fearful that they pay and another broker reaps the benefit. Owners will not pay €50 for photos on € multi million properties let alone €several hundred for a 3D Tour. Same with Yachts and...

I hope this will be integrated soon in MP, also allow us to add HTML code in iframe so we can integrate more than video and text. I have a client that even wants to hide a wheel of fortune in the space to play out tickets and goodies. I saw a lot of interesting whish lists on the forum, these are my favorite and personal 3D showcase requests: -custom branding for...

Wish List: Matterport, please don't .. DanSmigrod 3 2 daysPanoraman (4): online web documentaries and other virtual tours can contain audio field recordings, not music. they are great to give more context and the feeling of actually being there. Or just to add a voice over presentation or so. depends on what you are planning or the type of space you are scanning ;)

Statistics for Marketing Brochure SVM 2 2 daysDanSmigrod (8620): @SVM Instead of creating your own flyers with statistics, why not use 48 tools that Matterport has written and designed that include statistics? 27 of these tools can include your company name and logo.

big project with challenging light grmngrl 2 3 dayslisahinson (589): @grmngrl I had the same in a museum with bright lights in a dark environment. Nice job though! Hey, one thing I noticed is that when you are in front of the concession area... if you click you go through the wall into the theater.. maybe putting a window marking there would keep that from happening. I'll follow this thread though because I did have a similar experience. KUDOS on the theater though!

InsideMaps vs Matterport Mario 20 3 daysDanSmigrod (8620): @dorlando My impression is that all Spaces, including homes, can now be published to Google Street View. That's why I imagine that Matterport will enable easy, fast and ($$$) to publish to Google Map. And, that we will see Google acquire Matterport. 😎 The first, big step forward will be Matterport making their API public. Dan
