Matterport: 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
  • 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.

  • Take simple measurements (dimensions) in metric or imperial units. Learn how.
  • 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. Learn more.
  • Measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.

  • Take simple flat 2D photography from your Matterport Space.
  • Take as many as you like and use them for both print and digital formats. Learn how.
  • Download your 2D photos as simple JPG files. Learn how.
  • Use for simple team communication or include in the turnover package for your clients.
SxQL3iGyoDo_-_360_snapshot.jpg 360º Photospheres
  • Download as many 360º photospheres from the Matterport Space as you like. Learn how.
  • 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.
conference-room-point-cloud.png Colorized Point Clouds
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers. Learn more.
  • 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.
ICM_colorplan_000_resized.jpg High Resolution Floor Plan Image
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers. Learn more.
  • Get a quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it.
  • Use in AutoCAD as a tracing element or open in Maya, 3ds 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.
ICM_ceilingcolorplan_000_preview.jpeg Reflected Ceiling Plan Image
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers. Learn more.
  • 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-preview.png 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.
