Question of the Day: How are you using the Leica BLK360 with Matterport? DanSmigrod 6 17 daysMetroplex360 (8620): @Montreal3D The image quality of the BLK360 has vastly improved (still not as good as the Pro-2) in the recent v1.20 firmware update. Leica posted and then removed the update due to some reports of installation failure, but v1.21 is coming in the next few weeks with improvements to the installation process.
Landscape CAD Tette99 12 19 daysHelloPado (88): Im biased toward Pix4D because of its overall service and quality of output deliverables. I've used drone Deploy also. Either are suitable for your application. Although... neither will be beneficial for surveying terrain because you're working with what looks like a level lot. For kicks and giggles... will you give me the address and let me see what i can find.
Matterport Pro - with Leica BLK360 Camera Wanted: Beijing, China DanSmigrod 2 20 daysDanSmigrod (16915): This opportunity is still available, as of 5:30 pm EDT Wednesday, 28 November 2018. Thanks, Dan
Question of the Day: Do you like scanning with Leica BLK360 + Matterport? DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): Yes, it's good. @HarlanHambright - Everything will be improved. Things are just moving slow right now.
Why Hexagon will buy Matterport DanSmigrod 15 4 monthsDanSmigrod (16915): Either I am wrong about my prediction. Or, just wrong on the timing. Dan
Does the BLK360 panoramic photos contain exif metadata of the xyz position? DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): It creates E57 files. If it contained XYZ positional data, it would be 0,0,0 as each scan would be in the center of its own world. Only when these are registered ("aligned") to make a larger model, would there be an X, Y, Z value for each point cloud.
MP Betas>360Placement, Face Blurring, BLK360 DanSmigrod 15 4 monthsDanSmigrod (16915): @Metroplex360 Wrong Matterport Product Team implemented Face Blurring. Nice that they took the initiative. Right idea. Wrong implementation. This needs to be a Matterport Workshop feature: not a Matterport Capture feature. CUPIX nailed it. Matterport should follow their lead. Dan

TIA- Advice on using April Tags BrianAshley 1 4 monthsBrianAshley (70): Who has done this with success? I have five open space buildings, with only columns and walls, ranging from 11,500 - 28,000 sf. My end product needs to be in Matterport Showcase format, or I'd just use the factory Leica App. Unfortunately MP is not very forthright with divulging serious challenges of mixing MP Capture App with Leica Cameras. It may work with great geometry, but it is horrible with this environment. I thought Leica ...

BLK360 Processing in ReCap vs. Matterport? c2astudio 8 5 monthsDanSmigrod (16915): Thanks SO much for the info and side-by-side comparison. :heart: it! So nice to be able to read the WGAN Forum and learn something new every day. Best, Dan P.S. @c2astudio great question!
Leica Geosystems BLK360 Camera/Scanner - Rental Info DanSmigrod 7 5 monthsDanSmigrod (16915): @Property3dNZ Yes. You can switch between the Leica Geosystems BLK360 and Matterport Camera at anytime while within the same scan. Use BLK360 for ✓ Outdoors ✓ Height (for dollhouse) ✓ Better point cloud and mesh (for AEC clients) Use Matterport for: ✓ Indoors ✓ Normal height ceilings ✓ Speed of scanning Dan
Would you scan a cruise ship with Matterport? Right solution? DanSmigrod 9 5 monthsAirborneworks (1): I agree the BLK-360 is a great option with the range and semi auto registration, while the matterport can get the HD imaging overlay, that would be a good gig scanning a fleet of cruise ships. We are new to this group and a nationalLeica dealer. Leica just came out with the RTC-360 this scanner is a bit less then 4 times the BLK price point. Offers 2 Million scans a second has true auto registration with one button operation. We have a very...
Matterport Pro? How to Scan 100,000 SQ FT by lunchtime DanSmigrod 1 5 monthsDanSmigrod (16915): https://i.imgur.com/u9mRiTS.png Chart courtesy of CUPIX Hi All, If you own a Matterport camera, you are likely to stumble on an opportunity to scan 100,000+ SQ FT. The 100,000 SQ FT space might be a: ✓ mall ✓ commercial office ✓ school, college or university ✓ commercial construction site If you are like many Matterport Pros, you post to the We Get Around Network Forum asking how to scan a space this large when the...

Scanning a B52 Bomber with the BLK360 Tosolini 5 6 monthsTosolini (2626): @lisahinson I don't recall disconnection issues, I guess we were lucky. @angusnorriss your question about sunlight is probably better answered by @isabel who has more experience with the device. If the airplane would have been open, we could have combined Pro2 and exterior scans into one virtual tour. We have worked with the museum in the past and we got the interiors scanned. The issue has always been how to give a sense of the entire plane...
Matterport + Leica Geosystems (BLK360) Real Estate + AEC Press Release DanSmigrod 2 6 monthsDaveChawaga (19): A perfect marriage! Our company has been integrating BLK and Matterport with some amazing indoor/outdoor results and winning higher margin AEC work. Generating more sophisticated AEC deliverables can be a little complicated.

BLK 360 + matterport> 3D CAD 3dR 9 7 monthslauks (13): i was wondering if the BLK360 added any accuracy to the model (it should, but as MP does a lot of decimation, I am not sure about this. The BLK360 could make it possible to use the spaces for BIM, but I am not sure if the 3d space as it is now is acceptable. (ok, MP is about visualization, not about precise survey= :-)

ANNOUNCEMENT: 360 Placement + BLK360 BETA Metroplex360 8 7 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): @Helen Not yet, but I believe that that is the reason that they are implementing this in this manner rather than just giving us Mattertags for 360 Views (which I would prefer)
WGAN-TV BLK360 + Multivista + Matterport DanSmigrod 20 8 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): BTW - now that we can scan outside with the Leica BLK, we have a new problem. Now we need to be able to scan the rooftops via drone. to complete the dollhouse. Here are some new BLK Scans: It's now complete: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=gYgfRkUSpd2 It's 95% complete -- heading back next week to finish the dollhouse in the corners. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=msruGVunb4G
WGAN-TV Mashing Up BLK360 and Matterport DanSmigrod 8 8 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): I used the BLK 360 to complete a backyard scan on a residential single family shoot. I shot at HDR5/HIGH for the first few, then dialed down to HDR2/MED and finished the MESH with HDR Off/LOW. You can compare the difference between HDR2 and HDR off in the corner of the yard where I scanned by the deck chair and behind the deck char. It's startling. https://mpembed.com/show/?m=y8XT7oAcLSP&minimap=1&nofade=1 One of the challenges...

Licenses & regulation; provide measurements Bale100 3 1 yearBale100 (175): Sure, in normal circumstances e.g. providing floor plans for Real Estate, then a disclaimer is typically accepted. However, in Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC), these industries rely on accuracy within the instruments specified range. 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...
Leica BLK360 versus Matterport 3D Camera Ghagendorf 7 1 yearron0987 (964): I did not see the BLK360 on the rental service yet. But that would be a fun option to rent one and integrate Matterport to see actual final product.

Matterport and Leica partnering in 2018 PeterMcCready 18 1 yearandreabortolot (58): @Dan Good news! Hopefully we could integrate other scanners.Indeed BLK360 is quite expensive.I don't see reasonable for a MP photographer spend 15k only to have a more detailed dollhouse. Bear in mind this scanner don't align scans as Mp do...They have to be georeferenced manually in post production. I see more reasonable (if necessary) purchase a 5k scanner from a Uk based company called Effortless.

Non-MP Cameras to Publish to Matterport DanSmigrod 9 2 yearsjfantin (1594): @DanSmigrod, now I see what you mean. I wasn´t aware about the New York Times announcement (I haven´t received the email and I missed your post in the forum about it). This is great news indeed. When I doubted the validity of your statement I was thinking in traction as something defined by the demand's behavior and not from the sellers perspective. I mean, all these actions need market validation. Until property owners and their agents...
Engineering & Matterport (Privacy concerns) Montreal3D 10 2 yearsMontreal3D (184): @DanSmigrod Definitly following and can't wait to see actual feedback from users. Couldn't be happier to see more and more of these solutions available on the market. Good bye Faro & complicated post-scan work ! I still have high expectation from the BLK360 given it is designed to work with the Autodesk Suite.
Leica blk360 scanner Jamie 13 2 yearsJamie (1789): Thanks for the info Ron. I do like the faro, and the 330 has an amazing Scanning range. I'm potentially looking at mounting this on one of our drones, so the size and weight is appealing. I also looked at the Zeb1, but it scans less points per second and the cost is comparable. It also has a processing fee similar to matterport as well. I'm more interested in elevation of the land, but of course building as well. Will have to see which...
New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 2 yearsAlex_iGuide (301): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...
