Please help me understand Matterport .obj Meets WebGL ... srennick 4 7 monthsJuMP (1305): With MatterPak you can get OBJ file and all textures for further process. But the OBJ in MatterPak is a high resolution file and it is too big for a webpage display. The mesh showing in the Matterport showcase page is an optimized OBJ file with <50K faces and small textures. It is the one you can use in your webpage applications, but the file is in Matterport format named .dam file. You must decode it before you use it. JuMP team provide...

So the MatterPak includes a floor plan? izoneguy 2 1 yearDanSmigrod (22500): Grab in Matterport Workshop @izoneguy The Matterport MatterPak does NOT contain a 2D schematic Floor Plan It does contain: 1. Color point cloud (.xyz) 2. Reflected ceiling plan image (.jpg and .pdf) 3. High resolution floor plan image (.jpg and .pdf) 4.

Matterport Object File (.obj) with mac? RomainReparage 3 2 yearsRomainReparage (129): Thanks a lot for your answer John. i did it but i have read somewhere that it was not a good solution. Do You think it's easy to clean up the file that way ?

Matterport OBJ format for autocad? Gregconway 3 2 yearsmp2fp (433): @Gregconway It is best to import OBJ files 1st into a native 3D Viz program (that OBJ originally are made for) like 3DSMax or Blender (Blender is free) then export from one of these program to AutoCAD. When MP2FP get jobs from forum members to convert and establish 3D DWG models from Matterpack data we prefer to use the XYZ file (it has higher accuracy than the OBJ file) and then insert it into Autodesk Recap...
HW reqs to run SketchUp with large MP objs PetraSoderling 12 2 yearsMontreal3D (202): @thor604 Suprisingly, while Quaddro card and xeon processor are sold to be the most efficient for CAD, the price difference is huge compared to the actual variation in processing time. Unless you are dedicated at CAD modeling and pushing the limit of a CAD software, investing into such graphic card is often a bad investment.

What CAD file types can be converted to .OBJ ...? DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsneeravbm (46): 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...

Am I missing something or is there no Floorplan Scale on the floorplans? Liam_Tayler 8 2 yearsLiam_Tayler (218): Hello all, Sorry for the radio silence, sick children! I had taken a measurement in workshop and from that calculated the scale, I was just surprised at how little use the .obj files actually are to architects, I thought they were meant to make their life easier. But it seems that without spending $750CAD and up to convert the obj files to Sketchup (essentially manually), that the matterpak is pretty limited in its usefulness for...

Collaborate in Innovation Briski2208 4 2 yearsangusnorriss (714): The chaps earlier have answered the the crux of your enquiries yes. As context, I recently completed some large scale scans for a cement factory seeking to step up their automation by introducing robotics. We created before and after scans and then introduced virtual staging displaying the new factory layout. It was captured with Matterport and integrated with the Matterpak and AEC packages. A fantastic project and part of their digital...
NON-Matterport 2D Floor Plan Service immersivespaces 10 2 yearsharshp (1): @immersivespaces Here is an example of what you get for $49.95 with Insidemaps (Floorplans included, volume discounts available) Floorplan-only packages start at $34.95 for upto 2000 sq ft. and $15 for every 1000 sq ft over that.
[R&D] From MP OBJ to Facebook 3D post Tosolini 3 2 yearsTosolini (3318): @leowanzweel You may be right that a cleaned up floorplan will likely be a better option. We wanted to test the output from MP, but the limitations are so severe that I'm not really sure it's a viable option.

We are not Silent Lamb, we can have free OBJ JuMP 10 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9284): @mori I agree completely. Give out the 50k OBJ file and label it 'BASIC OBJ' - For hobbiests and enthusiasts. And then have 'PRO OBJ' with high resolution textures with the MatterPak. I believe that the people who want the OBJ files for recreational purposes are unlikely to purchase Matterpak and the people who actually want the 3D data will gladly pay.
How do you sell MatterPak™ bundle? Queen_City_3D 11 3 yearsmori (760): Here they mention "High resolution OBJ" -> same as before -> for me the "previous" OBJ´s are far away from a high resolution mesh. Did I miss something?

Changing Colors and textures Andyh2o2 8 3 yearsPetraSoderling (752): @Andyh2o2 Hi Andy, we (Blue-Sketch) can stage snapshots with new materials, structure, furniture, etc. The outcome is a still .jpg image (not a virtual tour) which the builder can use on their website. I will PM you some recent cases we've done. Alternatively we can create a furnished 3D Floor Plan, again still .jpg images, of how the place looks like after renovation.

Matterport->Architech: OBJ-SKP-PTS-DWG-Other DanSmigrod 2 3 yearsleonvanzweel (515): With regards to your problem with your Ricoh Theta V. I had the same problem with the iphone app disconnecting at a very short range ie about 2 meters. My Ricoh Theta S is good for about 20 meters. Enough distance to hide out of sight. Could not hide with the Theta V, In the end, I returned the camera as unfit for purpose.

We recommand you try latest Chrome under Windows system. - New interface... working? ArchimedStudio 6 3 yearsMetroplex360 (9284): MP2SQFT uses data that Matterport generated from the patched OBJ that is seen in showcase. The patched OBJ is the OBJ generated by the tour with areas that were missing data 'filled in'. JuMP uses the downloadable OBJ file without the patched data. That's why there's a discrepancy. I'm fairly confident that both JuMP and Matterport are calculating SQFT based on surface area of the OBJ files. If JuMP were to intercept the OBJ file used by...

Client asking for Virtual Furniture davidpylyp 9 3 yearsMontreal3D (202): There are many ways to do it if you work with the OBJ or Point cloud. I don't think you could do much with the actual Matterport WebGL tour. Here's a way to do it with the point cloud. Use Agisoft or Meshlab to create a cleaner OBJ file than the one available from the Matterport service. You can then use the OBJ in many different 3D modeling app. I saw a neat asset for the game engine Unity to do it with the HTC Vive in real time. Load your...
Matterport in the AEC Space: 21 March 2017 DanSmigrod 2 3 yearsDannyBasting (1171): Thanks for sharing. I've been using the camera for similar use cases. I'll definitely check that out. Always good to see what others or up to :)
Pixel Pitch/ image quality BenedicteDamm 5 3 yearsBenedicteDamm (26): I need to firmly establish the viewing quality, eg how detailed and how high quality of detail is from certain distances. Eg how clear can one see details 1 mtr from the camera. 5 meters from it and so one. Pretty much "How clearly will we be able to count Michelangelo's nosehairs in the ceiling"- kind of answer. However, it needs to be solid data, not "really good" or "somewhat blurry", I need to provide data...

VR with Oculus Rift or HTC Vive xavierchardon 3 4 yearsVince_MccrayT (4): As for the price difference, obviously they will be much closers in price once the rift controllers are purchased.Also,can anyone imagine the ps4 or Xbox one being released without controllers,and I don't mean a stand in Xbox one controller until your actual equipment is ready.
Matterport Unique Project: 30,000sf to CAD? Acomeau15 6 4 yearsAcomeau15 (52): @JC3DCX Awesome thank you!
Matterport to Sketchfab? AAS 10 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9284): @AAS Download the OBJ, then upload to Sketchfab. If I remember correctly, I had to disable a few options for the tour to look right and then position the view inside of the tour.
unique/personal links to 3d tours JTW_VR 8 4 yearsQueen_City_3D (2597): The hosting of spaces (hosting fees) is the real money-maker for a company like Matterport, so even if the technology evolves to where they no longer give support to new scans, I can't see why they'd ever give up hosting existing ones and getting that recurring revenue for as long as the scans are viewable on webpages or mobile devices.

Exporting Equirectangular Matterport George_WALKINTOUR 8 4 yearsgrmngrl (936): @Metroplex360 I can not understand how this can be legal. The 360 sphericals don't need to be hosted. And at the point in time when they where made available I do not have a choice but accepting the t&c. Could Nikon, Cannon etc just update their conditions and not give us the raw files either? I really think it was a bad choice from my side to buy the camera. I would not be so upset if Matterport would provide me with the service I...

Point cloud to CAD Problems Invelop 3 4 yearsJoshReadhead (24): @Invelop Hi Stephen Sincere apologies for taking so long to reply. The process for importing the point cloud does vary depending on what version you have, but will attempt to troubleshoot as best I can. Judging by the error message, it sounds to me like you are trying to open the point cloud directly within AutoCad. For most AutoCad versions, the point cloud still needs to be imported (even though it's in the .rcs Autodesk format) while the...

OBJ file... ny360east 2 4 yearsron0987 (1396): One option on the obj file is convert it to PTS file which is a point cloud and any architect familiar with 3d CAD will know what to do with it. It is a great tool for as build's for builders and architects. It fall a little short on the accuracy but for as builds it is great, determining building concepts and general sizing it is great.

Will matterport ever become a designer tool? Dennis_N 8 5 yearsDennis_N (88): Well, if Matterport allowed some expansion to their software through 3rd parties, other companies would be able to do this. These expansions are called "plugins" and no software can thrive in a competitive market without them. It is totally fine if Matterport doesn't want to continue developing in any other direction. Just give power to other companies to expand their software toolset for a fee. I've bought a $3,000 design package in...
