So I have a client that has a C.A.D drawing.
Can this be converted in to our 3D Model ?

Hi Douglas,

What do you mean/need/want? What's in your client's CAD drawing? Do you know?

We work with CAD drawings everyday (from architects or designers) turning 2D plans into 3D renderings...

Let me know if we can help you,

Matt

Sure. Or I should say "it depends".

IF it's an AutoCAD drawing (with a .dwg file extension) then you can simply open it in AutoCAD and use the CHPROP command (for CHange PROPerties). Select the lines that represent the walls, choose Thickness, then enter a new height such as 8' (feet) or 96" (inches). In my posted example you'd get an 8 foot high doorway too, but that's another lesson. ;-)

Finally, the question. What kind of CAD file are you dealing with?

Hi Doug.

Not sure if you meant that for me or Doug but I can be reached at roger dot rapp at yahoo dot com or by phone at 832 693 0110

I just re-read your original query and you said "our" 3D Model. So I have questions similar to Doug... Are you or your client wanting to convert this drawing into a model that usable in Matterport? If that's the case, I don't think it's possible with any existing technology.
You can get an OBJ file out of Matterport, but not the other way around (again, so far as I know).

Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible either. It's possible to use the 3D model generated from a Matterport Space, and then export it to another engine (Unreal for example), but the end result is not a Matterport virtual tour anymore.
