IMPROVE ALL AREAS OF YOUR PROJECT WITH OUR PROCESS

 DOCUMENTATION & COMMUNICATION SOLUTION

PRE-PLANNING STAGE

We capture the project site for as-built projects to reduce site visits. We provide all of the forms of media listed above and a platform to easily manage it.

PLANNING STAGE

Easily access and share all of the content through the platform and communicate and collaborate will multiple stakeholders through the interactive viewing experience.

AS-BUILT DOCUMENTATION

You can easily access the project details within the platform. No need for hundreds of photos and documents as you have easy access to it all on 1 page!

“WE HAVE MANAGED TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE TIME TAKE TO EFFICIENTLY RECORD AND STORE PROJECT DOCUMENTATION" 

 

 

DELIVERABLES

Showcase

  • Engineers, BIM managers, VDCs, and architects can inspect the site remotely with a virtual tour.

  • The virtual tour is a collection of 360º images deeply connected to the 3D model of the space.

  • Each 360º image is automatically placed in the correct location — no post-processing necessary.

  • Collaborators can use Matterport to create a visual punchlist of tasks that need to be completed. 

  • Scan the same job site at different phases to show progress over time (construction documentation).

  • Explore in Virtual Reality.

3D Measurements

  • Take simple measurements (dimensions) in metric or imperial units. 

  • Measure remotely — no need for a return site visit just to measure.

  • Measure dimensions of objects, rooms, or even the entire job site.

  • Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality. 

  • Measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.

2D Photography

  • Take simple flat 2D photography from your Matterport Space.

  • Take as many as you like and use them for both print and digital formats.

  • Download your 2D photos as simple JPG files. 

  • Use for simple team communication or include in the turnover package for your clients.

360º Photospheres

  • Download as many 360º photospheres from the Matterport Space as you like. Learn how.

  • A 360º photosphere is the same spherical, panorama imagery that you see in 3D Showcase.

Colorized Point Clouds

  • Open in AutoCAD, ReCap, Revit, Archicad and other design software packages and jump-start your as-built designs.

  • Fully automatic point cloud registration of all sweeps (scan positions).

High Resolution Floor Plan Image

  • Get a quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it.

  • Use in AutoCAD as a tracing element or open in Maya, 3ds Max, or other 3D software.

  • The floor plan is just a unique, orthogonal view of the 3D mesh. Make your own views/slices of the 3D mesh by manipulating the OBJ file yourself.

Reflected Ceiling Plan Image

  • Same as the high-resolution floor plans, but a quick vertical view of everything on the ceiling.

  • See ventilation shafts, wiring, plumbing, insulation, and more.

OBJ File

  • An OBJ file is not necessary for most users. 3D developers and VR enthusiasts can use the OBJ file to kickstart their projects with a 3D model of a real-world place.

  • To open we recommend Maya, 3D Studio Max, or Meshlab. For Maya, you may need to convert the OBJ into an FBX file. If you prefer SketchUp you will need a plug-in to import OBJ objects.

As-built creation:

Capture existing conditions before beginning the design phase. Replace lengthy manual measurements with an accurate and fast 3D scan. Then import the point cloud or .obj file directly into your BIM software.

Construction progress:

Document and share construction progress with owners and collaborators.

Remote inspection:

Save travel time with remote inspections.

Estimation:

Speed-up subcontractor estimates by eliminating
the need for site visits.

Create virtual punch lists:

Communicate effectively by annotating the 3D model with notes, links, photos, and videos.

Project turnover:

Improve facilities management capabilities and customer service by sharing a full “digital twin” of the property with owners.
