I've read the various posts on here

1. Scan as normal, seperate floors (label as you would any other MP project floor 1, 2, etc)

2. have a scan on floor one facing elevator door

3. have a scan facing away from elevator on floor two

4. same process for next floor.

5. Upload

6. add mattertags, label at the closed elevator doors linking to open elevator doors on next level.

You’ve still got to link the spaces via stairs or somehow. O’wise that should theoretically work though my mattertags have been acting quirky of late.

I may go up the back stairs as a safety precation just in case I have issues.

Hi @adc1967,
I would amend your list as follows:
1 Get the key to lock the elevator/lift doors open (you will see why later).
2 Scan floor 1 including elevator/lift.
3 Lock lift doors open while you are in the vicinity of elevator/lift.
4 Close doors and shoot additional scan further away than open scan you will be using near the doors.
5 Use stairs to scan up floor 2.
6 Scan floor 2 including elevator/lift.
7 Use stairs to scan up to floor 3.
8 Scan floor 3 including elevator/lift.
9 Create Mattertags with still image of open lift and link to next floor.
I mention the keys to the lift/elevator, because in this example I nearly went scatty trying to time the rotation of the camera while the lift remained on the floor and open.
