Hey everyone & happy holidays! Just checking to see what you guys recommend for pulling the best/most accurate square footage from a scan. I've been looking through some of the third party options but don't have experience with many and I greatly appreciate your recommendations!

Hi, many people here praise this http://matterapps.com/mp2sqftplus/

If you order a 2D Floor Plan from Blue-Sketch our tool will also calculate the square footage of the floor plan.

@PetraSoderling - I didn't realize you did this as part of Blue-Sketch! Curiously - have you found that your results and MP2SQFT's line up? I would assume that yours are more accurate as far as the SQFT of the building as you would be taking the inner walls into your calculations whereas MP2SQFT is only taking actual scanned surfaces into account as per the information generated in Matterport Spaces.

I haven't done a comparison but it would be interesting to do. I add a 6" outer wall around the scanned area, plus 4" inner walls.

I can get the total sqft outside of outer walls, just floor area excluding inner walls, or area inside of outer walls including inner walls. Floor plans cover unscanned closets etc.

Anyone in the forum who has ordered a floor plan from me plus ran their scan through MP2SQFT ?
