What's in your case. leonherbert 3 20 daysleonherbert (436): @DanSmigrod I have a theta V but I also have a backup Matterport from the company I am sub contracting too. It really sucks to see something you baby around crash to the ground. If anyone has wondered how the repair options work with Matterport here is a basic breakdown. Matterport charges a minimum amount of USD$400 to diagnose and estimate the full repair costs. The USD$400 is charged regardless of whether you decide to repair the camera or...

51 Ways Matterport Helps with Mitigation, Restoration & Insurance Documents DanSmigrod 5 1 monthVTLV (1816): I would love to hear more about the white glove? Got a link on Matterport we should be paying attention to? I should incorporate this into my business considering my garage Burt up last year and repair estimates keep getting shot down with my insurance adjuster versus me, his suggested companies and outside companies I tried contacting. Not a bad way to go for repeat business with a couple clients instead of once in awhile with agents or a...

Spar3D "Assess fire losses with Matterport 3D Camera" DanSmigrod 3 9 monthsHome3D (1255): This reply is just for conversation. Matterport generally has required that the point cloud identify large continuous surfaces in multiple scans in order to "align" properly. That's why bushes won't work, too many, too small mesh triangles. Also why scans in the center of large open spaces misalign. Here is a fire example that I don't believe would work as Matterport. Too few simple surfaces. This was an 11,000+ sq ft home I...
Insurance Claims TopPiX51 7 11 monthssbl110 (281): Hi @TopPiX51, Just my two cents on this pricing thing. Whenever I do a shoot, I order 2D schematics, then invoice based on the total square footage scanned. I've had homes where the reported square footage was 8K plus, but after I'm done, it may work out to less than that. This might be because the customer wants me to skip a garage, large closet, furnace room, etc. I then apply a cost per square foot against the total provided by the...

Is Lack of Liability Insurance Keeping You from Getting Work? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearDanSmigrod (19070): @VTLV Much thanks! Hi All, As a photographer, it is essential that you have liability insurance and nice if you had insurance to cover your gear. Imagine that you cause damage to property while on site - or worst to a person while on site. Imagine that's a claim of $1,000,000. That could wipe out your business and your life. Insurance premiums are reasonable. Plus, it is a line item in your marketing materials. "We carry $2 million...
