Ideas to scan large exploded truck ahojman 14 6 daysysabelc (165): @ahojman I'm from Metareal, how can I help?
Scanning a 200,000 sq ft school rzphotoman 6 19 daysbriangreul (446): I regularly do 20K to 100K spaces. Here's what I can share. Sorry it took me a couple of days to reply... have been really busy this week. 1) take the best iPad you can. Active ram is one of the limiting factors. An iPad Pro 2020 (6GB of ram) and 1TB of storage seems to have issues at around 1200 scans. Between 900 and 1,000 scans will process as best I can tell. Processor horsepower is the other limiting factor on your ipad. The...
Best VR Tour Product for Large Spaces??? punjuut 6 25 daysDanSmigrod (22897): @punjuut Okay. Thank you for the additional backstory. Use-case is always very helpful for deciding which solution is right for the problem/opportunity .... I am curious how others will respond. Of the 150+ 3D/360 virtual tour platforms/software and 50+ 3D/360 cameras in our space, I would suggest looking at these solutions first: 1. CupixWorks from Cupix – Compare BIM and construction documentation side-by-side; point-cloud,...
Large room disappeared from model after being processed in sese 7 1 monthsese (34): Hey @Castaway, thanks a million for your very detailed reply and your advices. I did try to add some trims marks specially to the area that disappeared and reuploaded the model with no success. Oh, I also tried moving the stairs to floor 1 as you suggest, but no difference. We will go to the property again today or tomorrow, now that we have the lights we need to finish the dark rooms and we will follow your recomendations. Lets see...
Adventures in high scan count models. briangreul 12 2 monthsbriangreul (446): I believe it was. My deliverable was the completed scans so I don't know what finally happened or how they ultimately used it. The space was a vacant hospital and there were parts of it that were unscannable. Even with Apriltags I couldn't reliably scan in the bathrooms in each patient room. As it was I had to deploy the Apriltags in a fairly high density. I would have needed too many to scan the bathrooms. I personally didn't see the...
How to hide a floor in a Matterport tour? Harrycayman 5 2 monthsCharlesHH (333): You know you can do it super fast in EDIT mode? Click on the 3D Scans icon and then just click on the Eyes to hide them. That's the Eyes that show in the list on the right.

Urgent: TIA - AprilTags in large repetitive spaces. Help please briangreul 5 3 monthsbriangreul (446): As for the logistics... I have no idea what they are doing with the model. I can tell you one thing - if it was my client I would have managed expectations alot differently. I seriously doubt they are going to generate a floorplan from it. They have blueprints and Facility Managers. I think they are going to use it for a Leasing Walkthrough and if that's the case I absolutely would not have scanned every room. Nobody who makes leasing...
Leica BLK360 versus RTC360 for 150,000 Sq Ft exterior space? UTAG_3D_VISION 8 3 monthsdave3d (31): Thanks Doug, If pricing is anywhere close makes perfect sense if you have the availability - and it isn't Matterport. We did the BLK to also use for Matterport. It may lose a lot of time compared to the RTC but saves a lot over the Pro2. Thanks for the insight.

Ricoh Theta Z1 Assisted Alignment via Matterport April Tags? Atriux 4 4 monthsRichardStanton (213): That's very admirable pre-work @Atriux! :) Sorry what I meant regarding assisted alignments is that I have only attempted to use them a few times while using a 360 camera as the primary scanning device - and those few times did not go well. I have used it many times with the Pro II and have not had any issues. I do not believe I have EVER tried using tags with a 3D conversion. I try to avoid 3d conversions at all costs no matter what I am using...
Super sized 80,000 sqft space Pro2 advancedhdr 3 4 monthsWingman (1425): I do agree with editing in the workshop because Matterport loads all scans information into the workshop so the more scans you have the more memory in a browser it will take. However I do not agree with viewing. When a user opens a tour Matterport does not load all scans into a user computer. Each scan is loaded one at a time when a user click on it and not even in all 360 degree view. It is loaded as tiles just to cover the current view. It...
Scanning a HUGE space-135,000 SQ FT | Scanning issues? Pricing suggestions? Cabrahams 6 4 monthsaerialpixels (204): @briangreul hi brian. this isnt something u can easily judge with matterport. cos it needs to align from one scan to another. if it cant align, u gotta scan closer. i have had scans where we just gotta even scan every 3 feet. a supermarket may prove a challenge if the shopping aisles are homogenous. not sure that MP can differentiate the fine 3d of the items on otherwise very typical aisles.
How many feet between Matterport April Tags with a Leica BLK360? leonherbert 1 4 monthsleonherbert (898): I am doing some big projects with a BLK360 soon. I will be using April tags. I know matterport recommends 15 feet apart. Does that apply with the BLK360 as well? My thinking is that it is about the capture app recognising the actual image so if the image is to far away it would not recognise it. Is it possible to use April tags strategically, have sections which has tags and areas with more information not have tags. I used april tags...

Model with 845 scans not showing on cloud after upload schaferu 5 4 monthsRichardStanton (213): Phew, glad you were able to recover it! I have a commercial space that I end up having to do iterations on and I have noticed that there is a lot of binary data that is retained irrespective of what you may select to "delete". If you look closely at your duplicated jobs you will notice that they only contain a subset of the original assets - I am willing to bet by missing the duplicate step in your process you failed to create an under...
large LARGE venue Joelbcollins 7 4 monthsleonherbert (898): @Joelbcollins Do they actually want the doll house or do they just want the walkthrough tour? You can cut out large spaces of area by just scanning down one side of a large room. You can always add 360 further into the rooms.Not knowing what the space actually looks like that is what I would advise.

Largest Space Scanned - Largest Matterport Tour homefinders3d 19 5 months808virtually (127): @JMEPhotos I was pushing the limits of the camera. The person that hired me said to take as long as you need, so I could have spent a week there, if needed. I was a great learning curve with the camera. At the time I shot this was during the lava eruption here, and vog was crazy thick, blocking sunlight as though it was overcast. That helped. Thanks for the kudos. @homefinders3d thanks!

Question of the Day: Do you hide scans before delivering Matterport Tours? DanSmigrod 10 5 monthsDanSmigrod (22897): @photosintheround @ron0987 @GFHoge @lilnitsch @leonherbert @Wingman I could imagine that some Matterport Service Provides keep their pricing down by not hiding scans at all. Hi All, I would love to hear from someone that does not hide scans (and why). For those that prefer someone else to improve the walk around experience by hiding scans, CAPTUR3D offers this service. Dan
Another matterport scanning question rastas 15 5 monthsleonherbert (898): @JuMP This is not my first rodeo and no I don't think your solution is a good one unless I decided to use that. @Wingman You may be correct about limits but they either have a server timeout or something like that, that prevents a very large model from processing. Also it is folly to create massive tours that cannot display well in a browser. Also we might as well forget about stitching, I do not believe anyone at Matterport now knows what...

Matterport Pricing (confused) fotoguy 6 8 monthsfotoguy (659): I apologize. I forgot we did a large house earlier in January and it was over 100. So that makes the one that I'm referring to above free. I believe it's free as long as you don't make it public. If I read their pricing update correct, it sounds like starting Feb 1, even jobs that aren't made public will be charged $19.99. Am I reading that correctly?

Dear Matterport - Your "Large Space" Billing Stinks! iTours360VR 9 8 monthsConvrts (240): Hi Ian, I don't know if your question has been answered exactly but yes, if you already have a job which is over 100 scans you can duplicate it on your iPad prior to uoload and remove scans on each model in order to create 2 models which could be linked via a Mattertag (paste the URL of your scan point at the start on the alternate model into a tag) following uploading, The only downside is you don't get as nice a dollhouse as it will remain 2...

40,000sf into only 2-3 Matterport models. Possible? bryanhscott 18 10 monthsExpertise (435): HI Dan... I look forward to hearing about the basketball project. We did a somewhat similar space, a car museum about a year ago. It was basically a nightmare. The space was very same/same. It has super tall ceilings, and endless rows of cars that all look pretty much the same to the Matterport. The walls are also same same. It was very frustrating, with the MP sometimes eating up nice sized chucks of space happily, and then suddenly spitting...

BLK360 Help Scanning Advice Complete Resort Hotel Gerhard 11 1 yearTosolini (3330): Sounds like a good learning experience overall, although frustrating because of the tech limitations. The original BLK app is one of the worst UI I've experienced and I try to avoid it. The benefit of going HDR3 is that you could use the Point Cloud in other apps if necessary, but it doesn't seem to be a requirement. All the best and congrats on the multi location contract.

Can a 1st Generation Matterport Camera Handle 100,000 SQFT? [HELP!] MagnaShow 11 1 yearGerhard (1138): @MagnaShow I have done 5 schools that are well over 85000 sqft each. Just make sure you are using the latest iPad as the app will crash and not be able to go over 250+ scans, trust me I have been there. When you do multiple floors that have to get stitched in. Do extra scan around each staircase on the top of the first model and again with the second one going down. This will help when the model gets stitched together. One model had to...

Pls bear with me on a few questions: 1) Presuming all exterior scans were done in "360" vs. "3D" with the MP cam? 2) Looks like only 26 scans got this entire job done? When you mentioned part of the learning was to keep scans close together, can you estimate how far apart these are? Looks like 12-15 feet? 3) Looks like this tour was...

Free Matterport processing jobs? 3dshowcaseuk 3 1 yearlifelikeview (25): Just a thought - if you are hitting that 11 every month (plus your >100 scans), it wont take long to meet your 300 space cap and incur charges.

GEOCV prices cheaper than Matterport now Lukmoorkens 12 1 yearmori (772): Matterport is maybe only ahead of time as always and as I started my activities in the netherlands two years ago they may follow soon and already applied the correct pricing?

Processing queue priority for large model with tight deadline? manuqc 5 1 yearDanSmigrod (22897): @manuqc It's likely for 56,000 SQ FT a better solution is likely Cupix. You could shoot 56,000 SQ FT with Cupix in less than six hours. Likely less than that and get a 3D Tour that night. With Matterport, how much time do you estimate that the 56,000 SQ FT will take per hour? Perhaps you are shooting Matterport with a Ricoh Theta V or Insta360 One X? Matterport officially only guarantees 200 scans in a model, as of 7 March 2019....

What's the Better Tour Platform for Large Exterior Space? Chemistrydoc 6 2 yearsChemistrydoc (1364): @Panoskin I have a set up for DSLR (Canon 60D / Sigma 8mm / 3D Lantern Firmware).

Anyone shot aircraft so you can see wing not just fuselage? I want an ‘all-angle-fly-in’ at height of approx 100ft. I need to see the whole plane.

Solutions for Scanning Large Box Stores DanSmigrod 5 3 yearsleonvanzweel (521): @VTLV It is not about the tool. It is about using the right tool for a specific outcome. Most people's technological knowledge is rather limited. When the question comes up I explain that a small footprint is critical to capture 360 one-shot spherical images. I can use bigger cameras with multiple shots and stitch the images together, but that will cost them a lot more. The Theta/Cupix solution works well in a low-cost environment, where...

Very large Matterport scan - options? virtuallyreal 5 3 yearsvirtuallyreal (28): Hi guys, Thanks for the link (and instructions on how to use the forum) :) I've had a little read. So to be clear the safe course is to... - Scan the whole venue - When you hit 200 scans, duplicate the space - Continue scanning in this new copy - Repeat every 50 scans or so - Upload - Cross fingers - If it doesn't complete, consider removing some scan positions or - Duplicate the model and delete 50% of it from each copy - Link via...
Large -- really large space sbl110 14 3 yearssbl110 (283): Hi Everyone, Just thought I'd share a scan that my son found [...]. It's supposed to be 200K sq. ft. As you walk through it, either they deleted a great number of scans, or did just the bare minimum to create the dollhouse. At any rate, it's very large indeed. Sorry, I don't have any details about who did it, where it's located, etc. It's obviously a distribution center. Scott

Villa: Large Outside Matterport 3D Space MarcelloM 7 3 yearsNetworker (157): Hey @MarcelloM, thanks for the advice. I have a client who wants outside walkthrough, however, I ended up doing it the cheap and easy way -- 360º But, it's nice to know that could be done.

238 Matterport scans DouglasMeyers 13 3 yearsisabel (58): Oh wow, @DouglasMeyers, this is a really thorough scan! It was super helpful to see the points where you opened/closed different doors. I really struggled with that during this shoot. I started with the front door open. Every time I tried to close it, the camera complained that it couldn't align. I'm also impressed with how well you avoided camera reflections in mirrors and windows.

Matterport Large Space Scanning Guide immersiveprop 2 4 yearsjfantin (1730): Thank you for this. After 18 months working with Matterport in commercial real estate I learned almost most of the tips described in the document by trial and error, but it is comforting to know that Matterport shares this kind of things with its customers. Besides, this is a fantastic document to share with a new employee and much faster than explaining in person going over each and every possible challenge in this kind of projects.
Is Matterport the right solution for hotels? DanSmigrod 5 4 yearsUserName (586): That raises the question of "what if everybody else at the trade show shows up with VR headsets?" You may become another drop in the ocean. Any person with a cheap camera can put a 360 "VR" slideshow into a headset. Here's a new VR creator service that helps you make a mobile VR tour "in minutes". I haven't tested that to verify that claim. However, only Matterport can make a magic 3D VR dollhouse. I would...

Challenges scanning This 60,000 sq ft Space DanSmigrod 3 4 yearsDanSmigrod (22897): @tomjones2787 Yes and No. If the "only" thing the client wants is Object File (.obj), then yes, shooting it as one model should work (though I would not promise the client that). The model is so big that is may take a week to process or not process at all. Then, the likely 12gig file would need to be duplicated 2-4 times; delete scans (not in the master) and resubmit as multiple jobs. It's important to manage the client's...

VR for large spaces BrettMtn 9 4 yearsRobinLycka (721): @BrettMtn With a 360 VR tour with a manual camera, you can move further. Pricing would depend on the layout of the venue. If it´s just one large hall, for trade shows etc, it´s obviously a lot easier to do than if there are 70 rooms you need to show. Either way, I would´t have enough experience with manual tours to price it either.

LARGE house scans pheller 11 5 yearsfalconshakka (68): yea looks pretty good man, you got lucky with the courtyard door, having the door closed in some of your scans almost blocked the entrance, you can only exit through a specific way Doing a large mansion is tricky, especially when you are in a crunch for end up sacrificing the doll house view which ends up leaving a lot of holes in the 3D mesh but the walk through is pretty good...good job man on such a large scan

Pro Tip: Deactivating Scans in 3D Workshop DanSmigrod 6 5 yearsMDuff (13): Hi Dan, Just sent the photos the mini maps, but after reading Cindiewozniak tips from Matterport regarding outdoor scanning, there is mention of not being closer than 18" from anything. I think my 2 scans with issues may be because they were shot to close to the walls. I was trying to get the biggest angle for the lens, but this is news to me about being to close to something. I love this forum as I'm really learning from everyone. ...
Very large home... how to? sdubose99 8 6 yearssdubose99 (76): You guys are great... Here's what Bob at Matterport came back with, which reflects the same info you gave: "200 sweeps per model is the current official maximum number of scans per model. While its not a hard stop, it does have technical merit. Basically it was determined that a 200 sweep model was the maximum sized model that could be reliably / repeatedly processed and viewed without issue. While it is possible to go higher, its beyond...
