Matterport LARGE Scan | 23,000 SQ FT6611

Hi All,

First, let me say that yes I did search "Large Scans." I came up w a number of old, archived threads and most of them simply mentioned the total # of scans involved but NOT the total square footage which would have been helpful which is why I'm asking here again.

I am looking to quote scanning a 23,000 sq.ft. industrial property. Rather than quoting the largest # of scans you've done, could people respond by total square footage? Need to know if this realistically would be doable in one scan rather than breaking up by floor?

Examples of links would be extremely helpful as well and if you would be open to it, would love to talk to you as well about what you had charged for that size of a job.

Thanks in advance!

95000 square feet processed and operational. Can’t show it right now but 23000 is no problem whatsoever especially an industrial space

Officially, Matterport will help you if keep the scan count max at 200 and sq ft max at 10,000.

That said, many, many, many of us have scanned super-large spaces with Matterport.

You can actually do an unlimited number of scans, BUT, it is possible that it will not process.

And, if it does process, it might crash in webGL if over 200-250 scans; or, run slowly on smartphones.

My recommendation:

1. Manage the client's expectations. You may have to break it up as multiple models (though unlikely).
2. Regardless, scan it all as one model.
3. Once done, duplicate the model.
4. Delete scans in the duplicate model to get to 200 to 250 (tops).
5. If necessary, duplicate the master and create two models.
6. Use a level on EVERY scan. It can get challenging when you get past 200 scans in terms of scanning errors. So, minimize that risk by using a level on every scan.
7. You can have an unlimited number of scans for Matterport to Google Street View (my best guess, when it gets released)
8. You can have an unlimited number of scans in CoreVR (and you can edit which scans for VR in workshop)
9. Eventually, once you publish to Google Street View, you could use that iFrame for your client's website
10. @Richierichks suggestion for rich media MatterTags is a great solution too
11. Keep in mind that Matterport charges once for processing the model. So, process the entire model even while you duplicate it and prepare one or more models with 200-250 scans.

I included a model I scanned. I recall it is 17,500 sq ft and took about 400 scans. I recall that I got the scan count down to about 215. We managed the client's expectations that the Fitness Center might have to be delivered as a separate model.

Keep in mind that when you delete scans, it is like a house of cards. If you remove a critical scan, the model could implode. For your sanity, never delete scans from the master.

Dan

P.S. Once you get done with the project, please share it in this thread and share how you ended up doing it and why.

For a large, industrial scan, you may find using these Matterport Markers helpful.

I have done some large scans. The ones I have done are open commercial build outs. I did this one just to see what it would take. I did the whole perimeter. I did some scans down the center to have it filled in well. I did this in under 200 scans. I did 2 floors and each was 46,500. That’s why it says 93,000. It is all open so it makes it pretty easy. I hope this may help give you some perspective on a large space that may help You. Here is the link

I hope it works out for you.
