Revit compatibility

Does anyone know if Matterport is compatible with Revit 3D modelling software?

  • Hey James,

    We sure are! We export an .xyz file that can be brought into Autodesk ReCap. From there, export an .rcp file into Revt. You can also import the .xyz directly, but for some reason Revit strips color from the .xyz format.

    To request a point cloud, fill out this form after scanning.

    Best,

    Tomer

    What is Point Cloud?

  • I'll let wikipedia answer that one:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_cloud

    Essentially it is a representation of a 3D object or space using points on an x, y and z axis.

  • James,

    We have brought several projects in using the xyz file.  It has taken our drafting department a bit more time to get acclimated to the modeling but it seems to be working well.  You will still have to field verify your measurements.

  • Hi Guys

     

    I am not a Revit user myself but the architects we use, tried to import the point clouds into Revit without a great result.  They do not work with Recap or Autodesk to convert the files to a .rcp file first and feel it is counter productive to purchase another program just for the conversion.  Any suggestions on how to import the point cloud into Revit succesfully without 3rd party software?

    Thanks

  • Hey Schalk,

    ReCap is free :)

    ReCap Pro costs money (also pretty cheap, $200 a year) but you don't need it to convert the xyz to rcp.

  • Hi Schalk, 

    we can help you import point clouds to Revit for free. Just shoot me the link to nb@bim-machine.com and mention what Revit version you need. 

    The point clouds will be converted "as is" without any modification. Once you need any further processing (cleaning, isolation, merging with the other point clouds, etc), DWG generation, mesh generation or modeling (scan to BIM) this can also be done on the paid basis.
