Apple rumors indicates iPhone 15 Pro will include upgraded lidar scanner DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsSdoughtie (295): I don't think it is likely to replace anything that I am doing, but it will definitely be another tool to have on hand (or in hand).
Can I Mix LiDAR and 360 scans in the same Matterport tour? Olegred 12 4 monthsGladsmuir (550): Hi @Olegred, You need a design programme to open them. In this country a lot of engineers and architects use Revit, and there is a Matterport plugin for Revit. It is not straightforward however, Revit and its sibling softwares are not easy to pick up, so it is not a case of loading the files and having a look. If you know an architect or engineer who uses the programmes it would be a lot easier to ask them to demonstrate how it works. Oliver
Ricoh LiDAR Scanner to Enter Test Phase This Year Meidansha 9 4 monthsVTLV (2806): My Browser had a Translate. I'll read it later. Ricoh has developed a technology that acquires 360-degree point cloud and image data with a hand-held device. By making it possible to obtain 3D information of space more easily than general 3D laser scanners, we aim to utilize it at construction sites. We have already started joint experiments with a construction company, and plan to complete a prototype equipped with the developed technology...
How to buy extra batteries for the Matterport Pro3 LiDAR Camera/Scanner DanSmigrod 17 4 monthstoddwaddington (526): Well, this is very good news. DJI drone batteries are 20% more expensive, haha.

Matterport Pro3 LiDAR Camera/Scanner versus Leica BLK360 Scanner/Camera DanSmigrod 15 6 monthsAeronautica3D (33): How are you presenting high precision data to your customer (from BLK360,RTC360,P90), if not in the matterport environment? Which method are you using to allow the client to view the pointcloud to get measurements on a browser? Trueview? etc... Thanks!
Commentary: Matterport Pro3 Camera versus High-End LiDAR Scanners DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsGerhard (1480): Very true, we have also seen from the e57 files and did a side-by-side, it is way off. The Pro3 is good for outdoor scanning, no more broken artifacts like the Pro2, and that's about it. The Leicas and Faros of the world still reign as King in this domain. Using the Pro3 for Bim or AEC is like using a screwdriver when you need a Hammer, it is not the right tool for the job. But I see there are enough professional MSPs on here that know the...

A LiDAR device the size of a finger now available DanSmigrod 2 2 yearsWingman (3969): I do not believe it is a true in current market conditions. It could be true 5-10 years ago but now there are a lot of OEM LiDARs that seem to be even better by specs than the one in BLK360 and they cost less than a $1000-5000 In fact in the shop below there are tons of them and only two costs more than $10000. But note that their range is from 200 to 250 meters while BLK360 is 30 meters. ...

Matterport: IOS lidar scanning and no stitching errors. Wingman 9 2 yearsWingman (3969): After checking all 360 supplied by Jump they are all about 32-33MP so it is not near a quality of a Pro2. I need to do it with Ipad because by the look of it when I did a tour around my pool it did look as good as Pro2. Unfortunately I deleted this tour from my account and I will need to process it again. technically both Ipad 2020 Pro and Iphone 12 Pro has 12mp imaging sensor at their back side and it should be no difference which one is used...
Matterport iOS app adds iPhone 12 Pro LiDAR support for creating 3D Models DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsWingman (3969): After trying it on their production app I must say it does things differently. First it will exhaust you on Iphone when you need to align the last circle with the solid dot. For some reason that dot is jumping away once it is inside a circle.. so it is more like a game to finish a spin with Lidar scan. I tried it on Ipad 2020 Pro and it seems to have a similar problem but I caught it faster.. it took me more than a minute on Iphone. Second...

It is a default value for the spin to spin transition. If you were thinking about the Walkthrough Video, there is a way to slow the rotation speed on request. Please reach out if you have any more questions.
Capture 4.1(beta via testflight) is using built into IOS devices LiDAR Wingman 2 2 yearsWingman (3969): I have taken a risk and tried it. Installation of the Capture 4.1 under TestFlight went well and no harm was done to existing scans. Scanning though with my Ipad LiDAR was not as I'd hope it to be. It is done under Iphone/Ipad scanning and the use of the LiDar is not available if you have a Matterport camera connected. I was hopping they'd make the built in LiDAR to assist with a Matterport Camera scanning. And so far I could not...
Video: DJI Zenmuse L1 LiDAR | CM accuracy at 450M range. briangreul 9 2 yearsbriangreul (684): The Zenmuse L1 is a dual RGB and Lidar unit (similar to thermal) and this will be the equivalent of a Matterport camera. Can't find the pricing. It's all call for quote or make a deposit to reserve. The Zenmuse XT2 (dual thermal/RGB) is around $10K. FLIR is a different animal though. Regardless, this is an interesting development. And in keeping with my other post.... DJI could buy Matterport and not miss the change. I don't...

CNET: Lidar on the iPhone 12 Pro: What it can do now, and why it matters... DanSmigrod 2 3 yearstoddwaddington (526): Thanks for sharing @DanSmigrod. I have the 2020 11" iPad Pro. I believe it has the same Lidar technology but wanted to confirm with anyone who might know. I have read that it does but they never mention the iPad Pro 2020 when talking about the iPhone 12 tech. I was just wondering if the iPad Pro was an earlier chip or other.

R&D New York Times (LiDar?) oshioyi 2 3 yearsTosolini (4077): This is such a beautiful, interactive, yet linear storytelling. Thanks for sharing it. I'm guessing that for the photogrammetry part they used a DSLR camera and a software like Agisoft Photoscan (renamed as Metashape) or Reality Capture. The quality is definitely superior than what you can attain using the Apple Lidar. I did some tests with various iPad Pro apps and the results are promising, but not photogrammetry quality.
