COLORIZED POINT CLOUD & AUTODESK UNIVERSITY

Dear Matterport Customer,

We are excited to announce that you can now download colorized point clouds for your Matterport Spaces. Save time and money by using the Matterport Pro Camera to scan your space, then use the point cloud for as-built modeling, without the need for manual measuring or expensive laser scanners.

To request your point cloud download, please fill out this form.

Within 1 business day*, you will receive an email from Dropbox, inviting you to a folder, where you can download your point cloud in .xyz format.

*If your Space has not finished processing, the time frame is 24 hours from the time it finishes.

Come see what’s new at Autodesk University!

We are always looking for great models and interesting usage of the Matterport Pro camera and scanner. If there is anything you would like to share with us, please send a link and a brief explanation to aec@matterport.com. We’d love to hear what you are doing.

For more information about how Matterport can bring value to Architecture, Engineering, and Construction, please visit us on our website.

For any questions, please email us at AEC@matterport.com.

Thanks,

The Matterport Team

  • @MP-Scott This is very interesting as I have a few applications in mind for this and have already examined several .obj files with a view to using them for modelling.

    Are the point clouds supplied by yourselves via this process more dense than the points we can already extract from the .obj files we can already download?

  • Hi there @David Hothersall!

    The colorized point clouds that are available as a part of the point cloud beta program are higher resolution than the .obj that is available on your Matterport Cloud account. These colorized point clouds are delivered in .xyz format, which is compatible with most CAD programs.

  • Interesting! Is there a short beta demo video with NDA so we can understand better (beta)?

  • That's great. I've submitted a form to get one from my one and only (so far) shared model.
    Be good to get a look at the detail possible.

    Not sure what you need a 'demo video' for,? With all due respect if you don't know what a point cloud is or what you would need it for then I guess you really don't need one. :)

  • This is here.

    I'm amazed by the point cloud accuracy that you can output from your software, didn't expect it to be so good.

    Very well, that's matching my intent of advocating for AEC.

  • Received my cloud point model last week and I have to say I'm impressed.
    Masses of data and nicely colourised. I'm sure if I was looking to achieve a good scan of a space or an object rather than a tour it could be improved on.

    This is a screen capture in Autodesk Recap360

    This is the original space.

  • Hy There
    How can I convert the point clouds into a mesh?
    The goal is to get an obj with better resolution.

  • Why I can't open .xyz file with Archicad ?

  • You probably need to import the .xyz rather than open it.
