3D SCANNING FOR ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING, & CONSTRUCTION

THE ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION FOR ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING, & CONSTRUCTION

Scan your job site once with Matterport and you can get all of the following outputs:

  • 3D Showcase
  • 3D Measurements
  • 2D Photography
  • 360º Photospheres
  • Colorized Point Clouds
  • High-Resolution Floor Plan Image
  • Reflected Ceiling Plan Image
  • 3D Mesh File (OBJ)

3D Showcase

  • Engineers, BIM managers, VDCs, and architects can inspect the site remotely with a virtual tour.
  • The virtual tour is a collection of 360º images deeply connected to the 3D model of the space.
  • Each 360º image is automatically placed in the correct location — no post-processing necessary.
  • Collaborators can use Matterport to create a visual punchlist of tasks that need to be completed.
  • Scan the same job site at different phases to show progress over time (construction documentation).
  • Explore in Virtual Reality with Matterport VR.

3D Measurements

  • Take simple measurements (dimensions) in metric or imperial units.
  • Measure remotely — no need for a return site visit just to measure.
  • Measure dimensions of objects, rooms, or even the entire job site.
  • Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality.
  • Measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.

2D Photography

  • Take simple flat 2D photography from your Matterport Space.
  • Take as many as you like and use them for both print and digital formats.
  • Download your 2D photos as simple JPG files.
  • Use for simple team communication or include in the turnover package for your clients.

360º Photospheres

  • Download as many 360º photospheres from the Matterport Space as you like.
  • A 360º photosphere is the same spherical, panorama imagery that you see in 3D Showcase.
  • Open with a specific tool for editing and viewing 360º images, such as Pano2VR.

Colorized Point Clouds

  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers.
  • Open in AutoCAD, ReCap, or Revit and jump-start your as-built designs.
  • Fully automatic point cloud registration of all sweeps (scan positions).
  • Colorized based on the 360º panorama imagery and accurate to within 1% of reality.

High Resolution Floor Plan Image

  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers.
  • Get a quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it.
  • Use in AutoCAD as a tracing element or open in Maya3ds Max, or other 3D software.
  • The floor plan is just a unique, orthogonal view of the 3D mesh. Make your own views/slices of the 3D mesh by manipulating the OBJ file yourself.

Reflected Ceiling Plan Image

  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers.
  • Same as the high-resolution floor plans, but a quick vertical view of everything on the ceiling.
  • See ventilation shafts, wiring, plumbing, insulation, and more.

OBJ File

  • Matterport combines 3D depth data with 2D visual data to create a textured 3D mesh that is the OBJ file. We sample the OBJ file to create the Dollhouse View in 3D Showcase.
  • An OBJ file is not necessary for most users. 3D developers and VR enthusiasts can use the OBJ file to kickstart their projects with a 3D model of a real-world place.
  • To open we recommend Maya3D Studio Max, or Meshlab. For Maya, you may need to convert the OBJ into an FBX file. If you prefer SketchUp you will need a plug-in to import OBJ objects.
  • Our OBJ files have a scale of 1 unit = 1 meter. You may need to update the scale in your 3D software or rescale the model after loading.

3D for Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Whether you work in architecture, engineering, or construction, you'll be able to streamline documentation, 3D scan as-builts, and collaborate with ease. With Matterport, you can also reduce costs and help save the most precious commodity — your time.

Information! Architecture and Engineering Streamline design and BIM modeling processes with digital twin cloud data of site conditions. Our platform integrates seamlessly with your existing software - from SketchUp, to Revit, AutoCAD, and other BIM software.
Information! Construction Build more efficiently with collaborative project review. Use BIM360 or Procore with Matterport to enable quick and easy collaboration and manage all aspects of your project in 3D. Procore is the most used construction software in the world.

Get the Matterport Advantage

Our 3D data platform is the most powerful, accurate, and quickest way to document a building or property. With a compatible camera, you can capture anything from small to large spaces — both inside and outside — with the highest level of detail.

3D scanning that fits your workflow

Our platform automatically stitches all your data together and lets you export your data into other platforms easily, saving you significant amounts of manual work and time.

Create 3D walkthroughs and guide anyone immediately to a virtual site tour.

  • Communicate key milestones quickly and effectively by eliminating travel time and by sharing and annotating in the model to get sign-offs.
  • Perform remote inspections, measure while offsite, and reduce site visits by capturing all data the first time.

How 3D scan to BIM can reduce design and construction costs

Incorporating Matterport into your BIM (Building Information Modelling) process can help reduce virtual design and construction costs and help you win more bids.

  • Export your point cloud and easily share and render it within Revit® and other BIM tools.
  • Generate OBJ files and point clouds for as-builts and construction documentation.
  • Scan tight areas 10 — 15 times faster than with a typical lidar scanner.
  • Overlay your point cloud onto your BIM model to conduct verification.
  • Take measurements in difficult to access areas such as pipes, trusses, and ceiling beams.

Get the accuracy you need from a single source

Matterport provides incredible accuracy and easy measurement in the platform.

  • Capture spaces that are accurate within 1% using a Matterport Pro2 camera and 0.1% with Leica BLK360.
  • Replace thousands of photos by capturing all imagery and data at once, and save time by eliminating the need to document, arrange, and label photos.
  • Get reflected ceiling plan images and schematic floor plans.
  • Eliminate registration markers or manual alignment.
