Is the Matterport TrueSketch Plus a different file format that Xactimate?

If you watch the Matterport webinar tomorrow (Wednesday, 13 January 2021), can you let us know the answers to you your file format questions?

Happy New Year,

Dan

Hi Dan,

as far as I understand, a Matterport TrueSketch File or TruePlan File is a .SKX file.

SKX stands for XLANG Schedule File and is a BizTalk Server file format developed by Microsoft.

This is a 3D file that no regular 3D software can read. It is a completely useless file format except for Xactimate users.

It is somewhat the same like these .XYZ preregistered pointcloud files. Matterport is always holding back useful information from its clients. You don´t get highres images, you get only snapshots or panos up to 8K. You get only .xyz preregistered pointclouds and compressed obj, but no E57 or Autodesk pointclod file formats or better OBJ.

Thank you for the backstory.

I thought the Matterport TrueSketch File is specifically for Xactimate users that are filing insurance claims.

Are you planning on attending tomorrow's Matterport webinar?

Dan

P.S. Heading out the door for a walk and then lunch. I can reply again in a couple of hours.
