B747-400 Global SuperTanker
We did an interesting job last weekend near Tucson AZ. We shot every square meter of the B747-400 Global SuperTanker. 3 decks approx. 5,525 sq ft in total. Shooting in very dangerous areas (sometimes straddled on 2" rails) in 108°F/42°C desert heat (122°F/50°C inside) 2 days - 400 scans - 28 man hours - 8 hours commute. We believe we broke new ground and created a few Matterport records along the way.
* First floor to floor transition through portal or crawl space.
* Largest aircraft scanned in it's entirety.
* Hottest environment for using Matterport equipment (est interior temps near 122°F/50°C).
We took nearly 400 scans and managed a usable stable model at 299 scans. Model processing time of last upload was approx 12 hours. Because of the height of the lower deck (6 ft) the lower deck wasn't recognized as separate floor in model so we created separate models as well for each deck.
We are still prepping our copy of the modelsfor marketing but here is a video we made of the tour.
We want to thank the team at Global SuperTanker for giving us exclusive access to the aircraft for two days along with the Ground Power Unit (GPU).
