Will it be possible to create a model when building is 3500 square meters over 3 levels?

Yes, should be working. Try to stay within the 200 Scan limit if possible. We did models with about the same size recently.

@Fuse While it is possible to scan a space that is 3,500 square meters (37,700 square feet), I would not recommend doing this unless you have been done at least 50 scans.

If you do decide to take on this project, I recommend that you manage the expectations of your client that you likely will need to deliver the project as three separate floors (3 models).

While We Get Around in Atlanta has successfully scanned nearly 1,800 sq ft - and other We Get Around Forum Members report scanning 40,000 sq ft successfully - here are the challenges:

1. Matterport supports up to 10,000 sf ft (if you run into trouble and need their help)
2. Matterport supports up to 200 scans (fi you run into trouble and need their help)
3. While you (likely) can successfully scan with 1,000 scans in a model, then there are three issues:
A. Will it process? (Likely, though may take days to process)
B. More than 200 scans will likely crash in webGL
C. Even if 200+ scans does not crash webGL, in mobile, it is likely to be painfully slow.

If We Get Around was scanning this space, we would:

1. Manage Expectations: let the client know that while we will do our best to deliver as one model, it is likely that it will need to be three separate floors (three models)
2. Do all the scans in one model
3. When done, duplicate the model and see if we can delete scans to get the model down to 200 scans


If it is a commercial space that shows up on Google Maps with an address, I would ask the client if they would like it published to Google Maps. Plus, that can be one model, even if you have multiple models (or different floors).

The Matterport to Google Street View Service (MP2SV), for example, can convert and publish 40,000 sq ft to Google Street View.

Please let us know what you decide to do and please share the results here.
