How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 27 1 monthkjoman (166): I subscribe to The Deal Guy YouTube (he tries out a variety of consumer products & posts links to deals).

Matterport using your tours to sell Cameras to competitors? DanSmigrod 5 5 hoursmori (589): Same opinion from my side. A feature in this gallery or any lead received from Matterport has made one single deal until now. I still think a better SDK for professional solutions (whitelabel for MSP customer brandings, local / intranet hosting for large confidential company projects , really GDPR/DSVGO (germany) compliant solutions and a showcase of these would be a much better approach to sell additional cameras to their existing customers...
RE Agents: Get Matterport Training BEFORE You Buy a Matterport Camera DanSmigrod 1 14 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): Hi All, If you are thinking about buying a Matterport Camera to scan your listings, you might want to get training first.

Ask to watch the scanning process and then the post production process in Matterport Workshop / Matterport Cloud. If you...

Pricing Question (none Matterport) BrianM 6 16 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): @BrianM So, it's actually a new client? I would charge the new client the same amount for the content that you did license. (I would not give it to them for free or at a discount. It's your intellectual property. About the unedited stuff, license it too (for an additional amount). Make sure the client knows they are licensing the content: not a buy-out which is a different amount. Best, Dan
Floors Flip Flopped BrianM 2 16 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): @BrianM For clarification, is the basement floor on the bottom and the first floor on the top? (Whether you scan the first floor first or second does not matter.) Dan
Embedded tour not scaling for mobile BrettMtn 7 18 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): @BrettMtn If you use WP3D Models WordPress Plug-in, the embed code is responsive design.

Walk-through Only, no Dollhouse, no floor plans, no photos needed. BlueImmersiveMedia 9 20 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): @BlueImmersiveMedia Thank you for the additional backstory. Since it sounds like you want a tour - not necessarily with the dollhouse view - you might use: ✓ 360º photo spheres shot with a Ricoh Theta V or other 360º 1-click camera Use one of these platforms: ✓ CUPIX - 3D Tour like Matterport, without the dollhouse view (need to shoot 360ºs closer together) ✓ ThreeSixty Tours - you can shoot 360ºs anywhere: they don't need to be...
Making Money Idea of the Week #5: Variable Pricing for 2D Floor Plans DanSmigrod 3 20 hoursDanSmigrod (16381): @PetraSoderling Thank you for sharing this research. Yes. Clients are paying up to $600 for 2 Floor Plans, there is a lot of room for a Matterport Service Provider to charge way more than what they are likely charging and charge by the size rather than one price for any size.

Hyperrealistic renderings support other marketing materials PetraSoderling 8 3 daysPetraSoderling (661): @imad Thanks, I'm glad you like it. You are correct, the list price for one rendering is $499.95, however that's not the whole story. Typically developers want to see a package of various deliverables (couple renderings with floor plans for example), so it makes sense to give a quote per project. The number of edit rounds also affect the price. If the developer has all of their materials, kitchen cabinets etc. picked out and we can do the final...

What CAD file types can be converted to .OBJ ...? DanSmigrod 4 4 daysneeravbm (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...
