Trim a Scene

Android no longer includes Google Tango technology, so we can no longer support or maintain Matterport Scenes. Thank you to all of the 3D enthusiasts who used Scenes. We look forward to bringing you mobile 3D technology on new platforms in the future.

If you wish to continue using an unsupported version of Matterport Scenes, then it is only available for Google Tango phones: ASUS ZenFone AR or Lenovo Phab2 Pro.


Crop an object with the Trim tool This displays a trim box that deletes any 3D data outside the box.


Open the Trim tool by tapping the Edit button, then tapping Trim.

Tap and drag the handles on the trim box to make it larger or smaller. If you cut into the object you will start to see it grey out.

Tap the Save button when you’re finished.

Save the trimmed scene with a new file or overwrite the original model.



Rotate the scene before you save it to make sure the front, back, top and bottom faces of the box are positioned properly.

The bottom of the trim box is always parallel to the ground. Rotate it by dragging it with one finger.
