|Hey Dan --
Bigfoot was found.
BY SEAN HIGGINS, SPAR 3D EDITOR ON APRIL 23, 2018
Matterport is perhaps the best known among the young companies selling a new kind of 3D capture solution for the construction industry. Though not quite disruptive, these solutions are making waves by emphasizing low cost and visualization over absolute accuracy of measurement.
Recently, however, the company started opening up the platform it uses for processing, storage, and visualization. Current Matterport users can perform capture with one of the company’s own devices, and supplement that with data from third-party devices such as Leica Geosystems’ blockbuster BLK360 lidar scanner, or any number of Android-based mobile capture devices.
Ed: 'any number' of Android devices refers to Matterport Scenes, which is related to the now defunct Project Tango ... this inclusion seems like misinformation.
Given Matterport’s focus on this platform-based data fusion approach, it’s no surprise that it has signed a letter of intent with BIMobject, a Swedish company that provides—you guessed it—BIM objects for download. Visit the BIMoject website and you’ll find a pre-made model for the exact type of fluorescent lights you want to specify in the office conference room you’re designing. Simply download, and plug it in.
The forthcoming official agreement between these two companies will integrate the companies’ platforms. For instance, Matterport users can include BIMobject objects like sofas or windows in their 3D spaces.
According to a press release, the two companies intend for the integration to improve workflows for facilities management and conceptual architectural design. “The cooperation will improve how design decisions are made and implemented,” an official release reads, “by enabling users to scan a space and redesign it in a collaborative environment using real objects, and then transfer those directly to the BIM model.”
Unexpectedly, it looks like Matterport scans will also feed into BIMobject’s platform. “The integration will facilitate the scanning of facilities, allowing customers to add all relevant BIM information directly to the scanned model from BIMobject cloud.”
According to the two companies, this workflow could even provide a “complete alternative” to BIM for facilities management.

BIMobject signs Letter of Intent with leading US 3D media company Matterport
BIMobject, who digitalizes the construction industry through cloud-based platforms and other solutions, has signed a Letter of Intent with Matterport, a leading 3D immersive media technology company.
The purpose is to integrate the companies' platforms and create user-friendly solutions. This will allow for the easy use of digital building and interior products from BIMobject Cloud, such as sofas and windows, in Matterport's 3D spaces. The integrations will enable detailed visualization in Virtual Reality and other technologies.
California-based Matterport offers a leading 3D reality capture system and platform that can be used to map out surroundings, such as entire homes or buildings. The system produces multiple outputs including immersive 3D environments that can be experienced on desktop computers, mobile devices, and Virtual Reality headsets as well as high-resolution photographs and floor plans.
The cooperation entails that BIMobject and Matterport will work together to develop a seamless integration between the two companies' platforms. Specifically, Matterport and BIMobject intend to disrupt two major work streams in the AEC world: conceptual architectural design and facilities management. The cooperation will improve how design decisions are made and implemented by enabling users to scan a space and redesign it in a collaborative environment using real objects, and then transfer those elements directly in the BIM model.
Additionally, the integration will facilitate the scanning of facilities, allowing customers to add all relevant BIM information directly to the scanned model from BIMobject Cloud. The latter is revolutionary given that it provides a complete alternative to BIM for facilities management. BIMobject and Matterport see great potential to significantly streamline and improve the experience for users of cloud-based objects, Virtual Reality, and 3D reality capture.
"We are thrilled to begin this cooperation with one of the world-leading companies in 3D immersive media. BIM objects and 3D reality capture go hand in hand, and we're confident that combining our offers creates more efficient and more user-friendly solutions. You'll benefit whether you're an architect, product manufacturer, or end consumer who wants to visualize what a new kitchen looks like before purchase", says Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject.
"Matterport is delivering a platform to facilitate decision-making around properties, including the 3D structure and all of the current or potential future objects within it. BIMobject Cloud offers a growing platform for high-quality objects that we want to be able to integrate into our 3D models. We look forward to working with BIMobject and developing exciting new solutions together", says Bill Brown, CEO at Matterport.
Both BIMobject and Matterport believe the partnership will lead to key developments, such as providing stakeholders a way to collaborate more productively in the redesign of a space and the ability to easily toggle back and forth between a BIM model to the Matterport/BIMobject environment.

That said, looks like this announcement takes us one 'Big Foot' step to finding him.
