Disable ability to download OBJ file for non-logged in users.

I've discovered that the OBJ file for any Matterport Tour can be downloaded by ANYONE with a little bit of know-how. I don't think this is in the best interest of any party and would like to request that it be removed from any front-end access.



  • Hi Chris,

    I'm interested in downloading the OBJ files of my scans, but haven't managed to work out how. (Of course I appreciate the security risks of this being available front-end, and agree that it shouldn't be, but I can't see how to do it from anywhere!)

  • In workshop, right above where you can view your tour there is a download button.

    As useful as downloading the obj from the front end was, it's a huge liability as many clients do not want their models downloadable by third parties.

  • Hi Richard,

    As Chris pointed out, there's no need to worry anymore about others downloading your OBJ files since it's only available to account admins and collaborators. In the Space page within your account, the download button is just above the Showcase section. See image below.
