|This can vary greatly. Here's some rules of thumb.|
First count the time it takes to stage/prepare the site. Estimate this at 30 minutes.
Next count the time actually spent scanning. An individual scan takes about 75 seconds. This includes:
- Camera scanning and rotating (30 seconds)
- Transferring data from camera to the iPad (30 seconds)
- Aligning to previous scans on the iPad (15 seconds)
- Moving the camera to the next spot (can be done concurrently with transfer and alignment)
Multiply this by the total number of scans. Most residential homes (2000 ft2 or 185 m2) can be done in 60 to 100 scans.
|Altogether, this means it takes about 1.5 to 2.5 hours to scan a typical residential home. This is a conservative estimate -- most places will take less time.|
