Architecture & Engineering

Matterport 3D scans and creates an immersive 3D model that architects and engineers can access from anywhere. One photo shoot will capture 2D photography and 3D data. Matterport technology stitches them into a complete immersive 3D model. Annotate, share and export the point cloud to Autodesk, ReCap® or Revit®.

With access from anywhere, collaborators can use Matterport for a visual punchlist of tasks to be completed. Scan the same job site at different phases to show progress over time (construction documentation). Matterport 3D scans are faster and more accurate than laser scans. No need to set up registration markers, no manual alignments and no leveling required.

  • 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.
  • Workshop measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.

Visuals From Floor to Ceiling

Matterport’s exclusive dollhouse view to show how a property fits together. No other camera can create a stunning Dollhouse view on-demand. From this view, you can see the entire property from any angle and see the scale of the entire site in relation to all its parts.

Floorplan view to understand the layout. Have schematic floor plans as well as tags in your 3D Showcase to highlight features. A helpful view for architects to give clients the understanding of how furniture and design elements will fit in the space.

The reflected ceiling plan image gives a high-res quick vertical view of everything on the ceiling. Engineers and architects and see ventilation shafts, wiring, plumbing, insulation, and more. The high-res floor plan image shows quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it. Use these images in AutoCAD as a tracing element or open in Maya, 3ds Max, or other 3D software.

No Software Installation

Matterport technology manages all your 3D models and lets you easily share with stakeholders and team members. There is no software to install. The data is all uploaded to the Matterport cloud. Once access to Matterport cloud is shared, you can explore the site in 3D from your desktop or mobile device. Matterport is ideal for architects and engineers that modify, build and construct real-world spaces.

Replace thousands of construction photos with a single Matterport file. The 3D model adds real-world context and dimensions to your construction’s progress.

Easy as 1, 2, 3

Hire a Circleshots Photographer to scan your job site: Each 360° sweep takes less than a minute. Upload to Your Site: With one click, upload your data to the cloud.
Share Your Site: Share a link and stakeholders can explore the 3D Space right from their web browser.

Scanning of 5000 square feet takes about an hour. No need to set up registration markers, no manual alignments and no leveling required. Your data is uploaded to the cloud with one click. Your 2D and 3D data is aligned and stitched into a complete textured mesh. Annotate, share and track milestones. A link can be shared with stakeholders and they can explore the3D model from anywhere. You can even export assets and continue working in software, such as Autodesk, ReCap® or Revit®.
