Matterport->Architech: OBJ-SKP-PTS-DWG-Other DanSmigrod 2 9 daysleonvanzweel (196): With regards to your problem with your Ricoh Theta V. I had the same problem with the iphone app disconnecting at a very short range ie about 2 meters. My Ricoh Theta S is good for about 20 meters. Enough distance to hide out of sight. Could not hide with the Theta V, In the end, I returned the camera as unfit for purpose.

New free Square Footage measure APP online! JuMP 24 8 monthsJuMP (550): @arielgrasso It works as usual. Some Mac system with Safari can't use it. We recommand you try latest Chrome under Windows system.
mp2sqft.com - New interface... working? ArchimedStudio 6 9 monthsMetroplex360 (6349): MP2SQFT uses data that Matterport generated from the patched OBJ that is seen in showcase. The patched OBJ is the OBJ generated by the tour with areas that were missing data 'filled in'. JuMP uses the downloadable OBJ file without the patched data. That's why there's a discrepancy. I'm fairly confident that both JuMP and Matterport are calculating SQFT based on surface area of the OBJ files. If JuMP were to intercept the OBJ file used by...
3D view of "Dollhouse" in new technology Max_Sodomovskiy 13 9 monthsJonJ (1276): I would definitely say the quality of the .obj file has improved! Here is an example of a condo I shot yesterday. clickable text This model was created with the fewest scans possible and the dollhouse still looks great. Enjoy, Jon

Client asking for Virtual Furniture davidpylyp 9 9 monthsNicolasMorency (64): There are many ways to do it if you work with the OBJ or Point cloud. I don't think you could do much with the actual Matterport WebGL tour. Here's a way to do it with the point cloud. Use Agisoft or Meshlab to create a cleaner OBJ file than the one available from the Matterport service. You can then use the OBJ in many different 3D modeling app. I saw a neat asset for the game engine Unity to do it with the HTC Vive in real time. Load your...
Matterport in the AEC Space: 21 March 2017 DanSmigrod 2 10 monthsDannyBasting (967): Thanks for sharing. I've been using the camera for similar use cases. I'll definitely check that out. Always good to see what others or up to :)
Pixel Pitch/ image quality BenedicteDamm 5 10 monthsBenedicteDamm (1): I need to firmly establish the viewing quality, eg how detailed and how high quality of detail is from certain distances. Eg how clear can one see details 1 mtr from the camera. 5 meters from it and so one. Pretty much "How clearly will we be able to count Michelangelo's nosehairs in the ceiling"- kind of answer. However, it needs to be solid data, not "really good" or "somewhat blurry", I need to provide data...
Hi! Question regarding floor plans polygon_imagery 6 11 monthspolygon_imagery (1): Ahhh I would have never known to go into my account settings to allow that. Thank you! Also thanks for the links Dan, I'll read through them.
Working with OBJ files Bill 4 11 monthsBill (163): Much appreciated on the feedback
VR with Oculus Rift or HTC Vive xavierchardon 3 11 monthsVince_MccrayT (4): As for the price difference, obviously they will be much closers in price once the rift controllers are purchased.Also,can anyone imagine the ps4 or Xbox one being released without controllers,and I don't mean a stand in Xbox one controller until your actual equipment is ready.
Matterport Unique Project: 30,000sf to CAD? Acomeau15 6 1 yearAcomeau15 (52): @JC3DCX Awesome thank you!
Matterport to Sketchfab? AAS 10 1 yearMetroplex360 (6349): @AAS Download the OBJ, then upload to Sketchfab. If I remember correctly, I had to disable a few options for the tour to look right and then position the view inside of the tour.
unique/personal links to 3d tours JTW_VR 8 1 yearQueen_City_3D (1303): The hosting of spaces (hosting fees) is the real money-maker for a company like Matterport, so even if the technology evolves to where they no longer give support to new scans, I can't see why they'd ever give up hosting existing ones and getting that recurring revenue for as long as the scans are viewable on webpages or mobile devices.

MatterPort OBJ - SolidWorks LRA 3 1 yearDanSmigrod (13093): @LRA I could imagine that the Matterport Object File (.obj) is too large to manipulate. You may want to convert the .obj to a file format that is manageable. Any of these Matterport .obj conversions by Veriscian ( @JoshReadhead ) helpful? Best, Dan
Exporting Equirectangular Matterport aznparkranger 8 1 yeargrmngrl (493): @Metroplex360 I can not understand how this can be legal. The 360 sphericals don't need to be hosted. And at the point in time when they where made available I do not have a choice but accepting the t&c. Could Nikon, Cannon etc just update their conditions and not give us the raw files either? I really think it was a bad choice from my side to buy the camera. I would not be so upset if Matterport would provide me with the service I...

Point cloud to CAD Problems Invelop 3 1 yearJoshReadhead (19): @Invelop Hi Stephen Sincere apologies for taking so long to reply. The process for importing the point cloud does vary depending on what version you have, but will attempt to troubleshoot as best I can. Judging by the error message, it sounds to me like you are trying to open the point cloud directly within AutoCad. For most AutoCad versions, the point cloud still needs to be imported (even though it's in the .rcs Autodesk format) while the...
Vendors that will do virtual remodels? Sedry 5 1 yearSedry (10): Thank you everyone. I am ideally looking for something that, after the remodeling, can still be used as a walkthrough/tour. So I'll check into Archilogic. If anyone thinks of anything else, please feel free! :)

OBJ file... ny360east 2 2 yearsron0987 (691): One option on the obj file is convert it to PTS file which is a point cloud and any architect familiar with 3d CAD will know what to do with it. It is a great tool for as build's for builders and architects. It fall a little short on the accuracy but for as builds it is great, determining building concepts and general sizing it is great. Just one application. Ron

Customer wants tour file for forever use? EricThomas 5 2 yearsdavidpylyp (178): The model is not a model unless they keep paying a hosting fee. I tell customers that the model pricing works out to near $15.00 per month and is billed every 6 months for $90. There is an option the FLATTEN the model into a screen capture [but then it no longer functions] They can BUY that version for an EXTRA $[How Big was it / Time]
Importing MP model into Unity bamir 1 2 yearsbamir (10): It seems the Matterport support page https://matterport.freshdesk.com/support/articles/1000065769--matterport-to-oculus-rift-conversion-process) which documents the recommended process to import into Unity is no longer available. There are a number of tools that one can use in addition to a number of different processes and settings to use in the conversion process. So, it would be nice to know what MP suggests is the optimal...

Will matterport ever become a designer tool? Dennis_N 8 2 yearsDennis_N (88): Well, if Matterport allowed some expansion to their software through 3rd parties, other companies would be able to do this. These expansions are called "plugins" and no software can thrive in a competitive market without them. It is totally fine if Matterport doesn't want to continue developing in any other direction. Just give power to other companies to expand their software toolset for a fee. I've bought a $3,000 design package in...

Oculus intergration inna 4 2 yearskc1302 (16): Better to build it maya, 3dsmax, modo or whatever you use. Should be easy and fast. Just make clever use of substances (SBSAR)and your good to go. Performance The mesh chunks are randomly cut. The mesh have holes not very suitable for frustum/occlusion culling. The mesh will require decimation especially if you wish to port it to gearvr, cardboard etc. Where the limit is currently set at 100.000 vertices / 100.000 triangles / 100...
