Capture 3D mesh (like LiDAR point cloud) with imagery (like Matterport)12441

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a solution (hardware?) that can capture both 3D data AND texture images that can be displayed offline.

We are developing a mobile app (iOS and Android) for a historical protected building and it has to have offline mode, so we cannot use a hosted solution like Matterport.

The app can open up a webview (browser) layer to display the 360 walkaround for users to move around the building (like Matterport) but at the same time, the client wants the 3D data to be captured and stored for archival purposes. They also want key artefacts in the building to be clickable to pop up a 3D 360 view. I know Matterport doesn't support this. See video example below.

I've looked at Matterport Pro 2 specs but there's no a lot of detail on it's 3D capture capabilities but I've seen online services offering OBJ conversion to point cloud data. https://www.veriscian.com/cloud-services/convert-matterport-scan-to-point-cloud

There's a company with their own camera that can do this but I heard they are quite expensive and we don't have the budget to fly them in to shoot the location https://vimeo.com/391883926/3ac1cc8c20.

Has anyone seen or done something similar?

Should we mount 2 cameras and shoot at the same time e.g. 360 capture camera (images) with a seperate LiDAR camera like Intel RealSense or Occipital Structure Sensor (3D data) and find a way to merge both data together post-production?

@oshioyi You should look at FARO scanner which is a true 3D laser scanner that gives you a point cloud, 360 photos and a 2D feature to scale that can be used as a floor plan. Once the scans are all merged together in Scene software it give you the ability to create what is called Webshare. This allows you to have an off line feature that gives you some amazing features, view 360 photos, point cloud all off line. Expensive to buy, but renting is an option and if you do not need the unit calibrated you can find some very reasonable.

The space could be captured just as Matterport does but with GeoCV camera which uses the Structure Sensor. GeoCV can be self hosted and I believe operated offline as well. You’ll just need to engage a GeoCV creator. I’m located in Los Angeles, FYI

One example is PasadenaDesignHouse.com

Go with photogrammetry to build the space and since you are developing the app u have free hand to position panos and explore as you wish.

Specific details of the space be handy to suggest better

OpenCV no longer exists - they have been acquired by the Structure Sensor guys.

This looks great but I need to find someone locally that has it. I'm in Singapore.

This looks superb. Just need to find someone here that has a supported camera.

You should look for someone who is a 3D model service provider (Reality Capture or Documentation Specialist) and specializes in either Pix4D or Agisoft Metashape software. Both vendors offer 3D model photogrammetry software that can stitch a very accurate model from carefully taken photographs. Pix4D just came out with Pix4D Catch which makes use of the iPad Pro Lidar capability to get accurate depth information. Metashape will take photo and video inputs from most cameras and allow you to either automatically or manually calibrate them. Both offer desktop versions to process the photos and edit the model so you never have to use the cloud. If you want to do it yourself, Agisoft Metashape Standard software can be purchased for a one-time license fee of $179 - it is well-known in the 3D model community - they even show historical preservation projects in their gallery on their web site.
Check with these two vendors to see if they'll refer you to someone local.
