Matterport uses MSP Program to Generate Lead for Camera Sales DanSmigrod 10 3 hoursangusnorriss (166): @DanSmigrod yes that is correct. I have proof. They canvassed 3 of my current clients to try and sell cameras to them. Each of them came though the MSP referral and I have only had 3 through it. They also pitched scan services to one them. It outrages me but I supplement my business accordingly. Why do they have to eat my lunch just because they provide the plate??? Unethical and disrespectful. It needs seriously addressing. The CMO must be...

What CAD file types can be converted to .OBJ ...? DanSmigrod 4 6 hoursneeravbm (37): BIM is the same as intelligent BIM. There is no difference. By definition, BIM is supposed to be intelligent. :) BIM is very different from OBJ file though. OBJ file has a bunch of triangles that are used for rendering geometry on screen but there is no way to know whether a triangle belongs to a wall or a pipe, as an example. Hence OBJ file is not intelligent. BIM, on the other hand, is parametric. If you add a wall, it will add a wall object...
Matterport Workshop Workflow Tip: Hide scans before taking SnapShots DanSmigrod 1 6 hoursDanSmigrod (16351): WGAN-TV Matterport Cloud and Workshop for Newbies #176-Workshop Workflow with WGAN Founder Dan Smigrod Hi All, If you are just starting out with Matterport, when you begin Matterport Workshop Workflow, start with hiding scans. Then, when you go to create SnapShots you will NOT be able to take a SnapShot when the scan is hidden. I explain why that's a good thing in this WGAN-TV Short Short (#176). This 5 minute video (above) is from...

Question of the Day: Will you place 360º Views in Matterport Workshop? DanSmigrod 3 1 dayHome3D (142): I haven't tried the new Workshop placement system, but thought I would chime in on the past beta for placing external 360's in the model. The idea is great, but it's clunky and I've abandoned using it so far, for a different reason. In the past you have had to elect to engage the "new version" of showcase in order to add 360's. My problem is that I vastly prefer the "walkthrough" mode of the old showcase over the new...

Street View Scam? DanSmigrod 6 1 dayIngo (1): LOLs I got the same. I get stuff like this daily.
Hair Nets Verse Alcohol Wipes BlueImmersiveMedia 4 1 dayDouglasMeyers (616): Oculus go is your best bet. We took cardboard and the Samsung to the Cruise Ship convention and both failed to give out clients a good and comfortable view the Samsung was soooo glitchy and the cardboard is a cheap version and customers know it. One of these days Matterport might go REAL VR and you can use Vive or Rift headset but they do NOT play on real Virtual Headsets.

Newbie to WordPress: suggestions for my new Matterport website? rgestevens 7 2 daysChemistrydoc (472): GREAT job! Sleek and simple, and yet shows sophistication. You might want to feature the possibility of converting and publishing a space to Google Street View. I can only heartily second what rzphotoman said: The WP3D plugin is a MUST HAVE in my opinion - not only the SEO, but also the ability to "pretty up" the showcases and create simple, functional and VERY POPULAR single page website designs. Great first start - best wishes...
Zillow Virtual Tour Link and Matterport? PlusUltra 3 2 daysPlusUltra (22): Haha yeah i almost put "up and coming" or "potential" competitor to MP since I know they're only doing test markets right now, but I did get the impression Zillow would maybe try to block anything MP-related on their site so thank you for confirming it would work!
Download Matterport 3D Scan? APN 2 2 daysDanSmigrod (16351): @APN The architects likely want Matterport MatterPak: it's the data that they can use in their CAD programs. If they want the 3D Tour offline; no, Matterport has not budged on this point. CUPIX offers download everything; including a player for a local computer. To best answer your question, what would the architects like to use the 3D Tour and/or data from the 3D tour. Best, Dan

Question of the Day: Thoughts about the Matterport Collaborator feature? DanSmigrod 2 2 daysJohnLoser (262): I have been contracted to work for two separate companies and have used Matterport collaboration to upload my sons to their account. I use one of our company email accounts as the login - different from the email we use for our Matterport account. It works well for us when we work for others.

E.g. from the latest MP Blog feature everyone - also not logged in users - are able to access the detail pages of a space e.g. 39pixels.com and see details of the photos and information when the captures have been made. As logged in MP user I could even...
Question of the Day: How is Hurricane Florence Affecting You? DanSmigrod 6 4 daysTosolini (2401): I think it’d be a positive move by MP to create a Hurricane Florence account and let MSP upload models donated to people affected by the flooding. Imagine how many insurance claims there will be that may benefit of a scan. I bet several MSP would be open to donate some time if they are not being hit by the fees

Matterport Face Blurring (Beta) versus CUPIX Blurring: Which do you prefer? DanSmigrod 4 4 daysDanSmigrod (16351): WGAN-TV Short Story #123-CUPIX Blurring Face Out Example --- Yes. Absolutely. Matterport should have implemented face blurring in Workshop: not in the Capture App (which gives you zero control). CUPIX nailed it with faceblurring so that you have total control. The WGAN-TV Short Story (above) is about CUPIX versus Matterport face blurring and color correction. These two CUPIX features are available in CUPIX Studio Pack Add...
