Matterport in the AEC Space: Understanding The Space and Measurements DanSmigrod 2 23 daysGlennTremain (1501): I would not disregard this channel of business and it’s definitely worth learning how to get it. This segment of business is like Matterport in 2014. No one is gong after it and the ones that do are making good money as it becomes a consistent stream of business. Real estate is up and down and with more drama. This business pays more and brings in more business than a bunch of real estate scans. I heard about this from Dan and I recommend...

Download Matterport 3D Scan? APN 2 2 monthsDanSmigrod (16768): @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

SPAR3D18: StructionSite 3D/360 Platform for Documenting Job Sites DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsimad (142): Sounds Promising and worth testing, however if they didn't provide a white label version it's gonna be hard to adopt because construction industry is so different than other sectors like Real Estate and other one time service sectors where you scan the property (House, restaurant, club .. etc) only once for your client, but in construction you scan periodically for your client to show progress, and if you offer them the solution source they...

Am I missing something or is there no Floorplan Scale on the floorplans? Liam_Tayler 8 3 monthsLiam_Tayler (184): 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...

CUPIX Versus Matterport in AEC Space DanSmigrod 16 4 monthsDavidHothersall (55): @DanSmigrod As I suggested I doubt Matterport would be interested in releasing the higher level data assuming it exists. I wonder if Chris @Metroplex360 has done a comparison with a Matterport and a Leica BLK pointcloud of similar spaces to ascertain if there is more data in the BLK? I did a couple of quick tests with Cupix using some previously acquired data from a Matterport scan of what I considered a simple space but it was apparent from...

We are not Silent Lamb, we can have free OBJ JuMP 10 9 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): @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.
Matterport Obj file for Newbie? Briski2208 3 9 monthsBriski2208 (127): I'm curious about how it may be used either by architects or construction groups or implemented for example into a training aid by industries which are security conscious due to the tour being an open source.

AEC Advice and inspiration: Oil/Gas Space Briski2208 2 10 monthsCarlosFHdz (598): Email him a request for meeting. Schedule a meeting, and then show him the Matterport/krispy kream/power ranger 3D tour with videos, tags, and other items and Guide him through it telling him to imagine the office/space with tags and videos of things mentioned. If you send an email, he won’t be able to share the vision of what’s possible. If you meet him and chat, you can guide him.
*New* in December - Cupix Review scott_cupix 9 10 monthsJuMP (952): Ok, I see. Cupix required Panoroma. We will try to work on one software to pull out Matterport 3x6 photos from the Camera hardware and turn them to one equirectangular panoroma for processing with Cupix.

Clearly the Matterport Pro / Pro 2 scanners are not capable of providing precision measurements and Matterport suggest an accuracy of within 1%. However, once you combine other...

Convert Matterport to AutoCAD Chemistrydoc 5 1 yearMontreal3D (139): In most cases this work is done by simply tracing over point clouds. There are many advantages of using the point cloud over the OBJ or FBX model. You also have to keep in mind making floor plans require a different scan pattern since you are aiming for accuracy and not for visual walktrough. I've done quite a few scans for AEC in the last few months (150K sqft) and I keep learning how to maximize the use of the Matterport for use in engineering...
