3D Showcase should be free of 'holes' in Dollhouse and Floorplan View

Avoid holes in the Dollhouse by taking lots of scans while you are on-site.

You'll want to fill in the black areas that appear in the preview pane in Matterport Capture.


Properly mark ALL windows and mirrors

Use the Mark Features tool in Matterport Capture to mark windows and mirrors as you scan.

Make sure the label is oriented in the proper direction (inside or outside).

For best results, extend your markings slightly longer than necessary to cover the window or mirror.


Remove 'spray' from the perimeter to make it nice and neat

Properly marking windows and mirrors will eliminate most cases of extraneous 'spray' on the perimeter.

If necessary, adjust markings in Matterport Capture and re-upload the model.


Smooth walkthrough experience

For the smoothest walkthrough experience, scan positions should be at consistent height and spacing.

To achieve this, scan at regularly spaced intervals for a consistent look.

You may need to hide low scans and redundant scan positions in Workshop. Learn more.


Example Floorplan

Few holes because the property was thoroughly scanned. 


Example Dollhouse

Windows have been properly marked and perimeters are clean.
