Measure in Workshop

You can use the measurement tool to find the dimensions of objects and rooms. Though will be able to see each of these measurements inside Workshop Mode, they will not appear in 3D Showcase mode - to see the measured dimensions, you'll have to switch to Dollhouse or Floorplan View.

  6. Click once to choose the starting point of your measurement.
    • Once the first click has been initiated, your icon will create a line that will run parallel to the lines in the room or object.

  8. Click again to start a third measurement. 

Hit the "Escape" key at any time to stop creating new measurements.

II. Measure Rooms 

  1. Go to my.matterport.com. 
  2. Select the model you'd like to take measurements of. 
  3. Switch to Workshop mode.
    • To do this, click the Edit Space button at the top-right corner of the window.
  4. Click on the "Measurements" icon in the toolbox to the right.

    • Click on one side of the room, then drag the yellow line across to the other side and click again.
  8. Your measurement will be visually represented in two ways.
    • As a yellow line between the two measurement points. 
    • In the Measurements tab to the right of the 3D Showcase. 

Matterport will automatically straighten the line to be perpendicular to the walls - this helps with accuracy and saves time.

III. Manage Measurements 

Measurements you've taken, whether you were in 3D Showcase, Dollhouse, or Floor Plan Views, will appear in the Measurements window that pops up as soon as you click on the Measurement icon in the toolbox.
