Anybody using or accepting Bitcoins? ArchimedStudio 12 3 yearsDanSmigrod (30102): Ugh! I can't even imagine! thanks for sharing. The good news is that PayPal accepts BitCoin and settles with the seller in USD. Dan
Anyone else experiencing Real Estate slow down? Shawn_P 13 3 yearsimmersivespaces (1229): South Florida is booming, but the issue we have here is lack of inventory. Many agents sell homes before they can even get them listed in the MLS or get any imaging done. (We had a house sell while we were on property doing a capture.) We simply redirected our services to focus on the new home buyer, offering Matterport for insurance documentation and interior design services. Even with the low number of listing shoots, we've pretty much...
What happens to the models I host if I quit my subscription to Matterport? Shawn_P 4 3 yearsCharlesHH (640): You can transfer one model to a new FREE account that your client must open. Then if they want to share it on a website or anywhere, they must upgrade the FREE account to a STARTER account and pay a monthly fee. Hope that is clear.
Advice on landing insurance company gigs? Shawn_P 6 3 yearsGETMYVR (1889): @DanSmigrod Thanks and I just got a call out of the blue one day for the above scan, and a contractor was trying to figure out a better way to estimate all the damage. With the 3D scans not only were they able to see the full extent of the damage but a determination of where the fire started and where it eventually went up to. My customer told me basically fire insurance adjusters have normally relied on blown up images, but when they saw the...
Future prospects of Matterport? Should I buy Matterport Pre-IPO Shares? Silvadro 23 3 yearsrko1 (362): bold text We are always looking, are we happy with Matterport? Depends on which day it is. We are an MSP, and on the capture team. We have been shooting with Matterport for 5 years. Technology is like grabbing a handful of sand, what you have in your hand at this minute won't be there in the next, but a new handful is always available. Do we make a living strictly on Matterport? Yes and no, it is currently a substantial part of what we do. We...

DroneDeploy New Product: 360 Tours for Construction EaglePrecision 8 4 yearsmodularmind (29): @Home3D Still a great feature. The software you were thinking of is Cloud Compare - :)
Demand for video tours 8643d 16 4 yearsHome3D (3761): I agree that "slideshow videos" which some older agents still refer to as 'virtual tours' are boring, redundant, and make an agent look WAY behind the times. Virtual tours, whether Matterport 3D, GeoCV 3D, NodalView, EyeSpy360 or 3DVista (and others) are what Buyers are looking for today. We talk about agents and brokers a lot because they pay for media (photos, videos, virtual tours) but let's never forget that the Customer in...
Do you outsource your video editing? 8643d 10 4 yearsPhotoAndVideoEdits (258): In and out within an hour!
Need advice Shawn_P 5 4 yearsJonJ (1760): I think that part of the reason you seem to run into a bunch of "flakes" is because of your low pricing. When you are starting out, or even if you have been in business for a while, it seems like it makes sense to come in at a lower price point and "steal" business from your competitors. This is not a good practice for a number of reasons. If you are competing on price, everyone loses. By offering a low price, you devalue...
Getting started with little money Fish 30 4 yearsjen_ishayoga (33): @fish Hola and welcome aboard! Question for you ~ what market are you interested in getting into? You had mentioned 360s but later go into real estate and photos. So many of these markets bleed together, which is awesome and you'll probably have a lot of opportunity across the board! My specific focus (right now) is REP. One thing about this area, specifically, is that agents are looking for a one stop shop. You may offer 360s but there...
360 Tours and Commercial Real Estate jericreson 2 4 yearsjpierce360 (160): Agree with this as I have been doing nothing but CRE for the entire summer. 360 Virtual Tours Experiences? thereal360 4 4 yearsWingman (4182): If they charge $99 for this 360 video walk through it is not that low. 1-5 minutes of walking through a property and then just uploading it to youtube without any post editing for $99 is quite a good fee. I am offering the same for AUD$160 per hour with a minimum of 1 hour order. That's a bit over $100 in USD but not too much over. It would suck if it were the only service ordered for one location as a photographer probably wouldn't spend...
Robot virtual tour guide GETMYVR 2 4 yearsJuMP (2031): @GETMYVR you tell a great idea, and we would like to imagine a new addon for Matterport showcase. Why not add a virtual robots within a normal Matterport showcase page, it will look like the one you mentioned in your topic. But a 3D object that be added to the Matterport showcase to be a robot guide for showcase viewers. This virtual robot can be added by Matterport SDK bundle.

Race to the Bottom Pricing Wonderdawg 2 4 yearsExpertise (1180): I price in a way that I calculate works best for my business, and my employees. Period. I have been offering Matterport as an affordable add-on to our photography services. Pricing is based on that. My goal has been to grow our customer base of agents, and have a higher percentage of those folks consider Matterport scans to be a part of their marketing package, and include it in their listing sales pitch. Then I'd like more agents to...

Looks like the order will end on the 27th, BUT, restaurants will remain as it is now. Looks like other businesses, like haircuts, will open with specific restrictions. Regarding real estate, 1 on 1 showing will begin again, but, no open-houses. In addition, some counties, including mine, have requested to use their own discretion to make the rules. a week, it looks like we will be able to go...

What depends on what? Accuracy depends on software or on 3D-scanner? SamSon_NewSpace3D 3 4 yearsron0987 (2851): @SamSon_NewSpace3D it actually can be both, you can have the best equipment like the BLK360 and depending on your software your accuracy can drop. I regularly use a FARO scanner and process it thru FARO Scene software and can tweak the processing to bring the accuracy up. But like @JuMP said you can only get as good as the accuracy of the equipment. I have little experience with BLK360 and if you just need a point cloud then I would use the...

Has Matterport announced how They will comply with CCPA? Changesin3d 1 4 yearsChangesin3d (125): In less that 30 business days the CCPA goes into effect. Realtors in Ca. are asking about how this will effect their images and if they can delete Matterport Scans. The Ca. Association of Realtors has offered some private guidance on this to REALTORS ONLY on their website. Does anyone know if DELETE WILL MEAN DELETE?

Most of our clients work with Archicad, it reads .e57 files. but its very important to clean very good the scan so its manageble, cause it handles those files in a diferent way than Revit or autodesk softwares. we also work with point cloud for infrastructure projects, this is done with recap and...

Is Matterport a Franchise????? Are they Registered? Changesin3d 17 5 yearsQueen_City_3D (3102): I still fail to see the fuss. If someone is searching for a Matterport provider and reaches out to Matterport, then Matterport sends the lead to a local MSP. And if there's several MSPs then there's probably some rule they use to decide who gets the opportunity (not sure what process they follow for that). In the initial days of Matterport, this was likely more common for leads to go to Matterport. Now; however, if we are all advertising our...
Is it time to band together 3D_Hoffa Jump to first page39Jump to last page 5 years3D_Hoffa (143): Of course he's reporting back, that's what he is here for. While I remain anonymous to protect myself "in theory", I think if Matterport started terminating accounts they would find themselves in more hot water than they would like. Then again, who knows where the edge of what they will do lies? Sure, I'll poke around the FTC site. There may be something there and if enough of us complain, maybe something happens. I hadn't thought of...

Insurance Claims TopPiX51 7 6 yearssbl110 (285): Hi @TopPiX51, Just my two cents on this pricing thing. Whenever I do a shoot, I order 2D schematics, then invoice based on the total square footage scanned. I've had homes where the reported square footage was 8K plus, but after I'm done, it may work out to less than that. This might be because the customer wants me to skip a garage, large closet, furnace room, etc. I then apply a cost per square foot against the total provided by the...

BLK 360 + matterport> 3D CAD 3dR 9 6 yearslauks (19): i was wondering if the BLK360 added any accuracy to the model (it should, but as MP does a lot of decimation, I am not sure about this. The BLK360 could make it possible to use the spaces for BIM, but I am not sure if the 3d space as it is now is acceptable. (ok, MP is about visualization, not about precise survey= :-)
Will Matterport become more consumer centric tocha 4 6 yearstocha (166): Would love for you to expand if you can on what you are hearing. I think with a move like this for Matterport it shows their cards a bit for sure. If their vision is truly to scan the world they will need to make it super accessible for all. It will create the need for MSPs to solidify their business plan.

Oculus Go - Matterport MarkCantu 7 6 yearsTosolini (4177): @3dvirtualview The Go works with WiFi. I did two tests on MP tours. The MP app runs fine using the default content provided in the app. I'm not sure if we can load our own content on the MP app in the Go yet. Then I experimented running a MP tour in the Oculus browser (just type the URL or navigate to a MP embedded into a page). The experience is not immersive, as the browser is just a rectangle container in front of you. But you can click on...

I viewed Dan's Forum on BLK 360 combined with Matterport last Friday [13 April 2018], and I was in awe of where the technology is going - I am just curious if any one is already using this feature with...
Is the Matterport MSP Program going away? immersivespaces 12 6 yearsPeterMcCready (232): From reality capture to reality distortion within 24 hours ;) Bill, I firmly believe you can do the right thing and turn this fiasco around: Let content creators OWN/CONTROL the destiny of their own content.

What is the point of being a MSP? 3SixtyNow 20 7 yearsBale100 (175): Agree, price fixing does not work. Each market is different and we should live in a free market in economy where choice, quality, differentiation and availability determine prices. We know there's availability & choice in most markets, however the quality & differentiation maybe to difficult to spot for an untrained eye i.e. new prospects. Hence Matterport grading & client feedback to help make it clear.

What I am saying to you, its not worth your time or energy seeking your own legal advice.

It seems the vast majority want to go solo when it comes to pricing and I respect that. I'm an idealist though and want every 3D pro to succeed. It's still early enough to set benchmarks and there's no precedent so in my simple mind I figure, why not? Many will disagree though and I don't think I've ever had a positive response to the idea of agreeing on minimum...

Preschool Marketing Dept. Concerns 3SixtyNow 3 7 yearsOpenHouseOptics (208): Statistics show that people go where they are familiar - if anything, them seeing it online will encourage a site visit AND increase enrollment because parents feel like they KNOW the environment. It's based on the same psychology we use when teaching fire safety or mass panic situations, look for the exits that are OPPOSITE of where you came in because people will go the way they are most familiar.

Video Day in the life of a scanner 1 min. GeorgeK 8 7 yearsDouglasMeyers (1282): Nice video, I just have one question. Why is you camera so high up on the tripod ? I notice when the camera gets so high when you pull photos from the tour they seem to be looking down at a room not eye level.

I hope this will be integrated soon in MP, also allow us to add HTML code in iframe so we can integrate more than video and text. I have a client that even wants to hide a wheel of fortune in the space to play out tickets and goodies. I saw a lot of interesting whish lists on the forum, these are my favorite and personal 3D showcase requests: -custom branding for...
InsideMaps vs Matterport Mario 20 7 yearsDanSmigrod (30102): @dorlando My impression is that all Spaces, including homes, can now be published to Google Street View. That's why I imagine that Matterport will enable easy, fast and ($$$) to publish to Google Map. And, that we will see Google acquire Matterport. 😎 The first, big step forward will be Matterport making their API public. Dan

Matterport is the Gold Standard davidpylyp 3 8 yearsVRealExperience (115): I agree with the product and solution, but their support is lackluster. This is not a personal shot at the people they have in support, but more the way their support is structured and operationalized Forget 24x7 which I think should be a given for them - but how they offer support in general. It's really only email and in some cases 4 days go by. Does anyone know a single real estate agent who is also patient? Most "Sales"...
I see a link for Real Vision (Toursler)? MadHusband 13 8 yearsExpertise (1180): The new gen looks pretty good to me. I already have Canon DSLRs, just need a fisheye lens and a few accessories. I could then shoot a house in 1 swoop, and generate a 3D tour, floorplan and pretty high quality stills from that 1 shoot. So... my math tells me that instead of spending maybe 60 minutes shooting an average house and 90 minutes "Matterporting" it I could just do BOTH in 60 minutes. That's worth something....

It will only be a short time that the large photographic companies buy into the Matterport scanning and offer as another of their packaged...

Matterport Hosting should be Bandwidth Based Metroplex360 11 9 yearsJamie (2013): @metroplex360 If you die, that's not a nice thought :) It is a good point however. I'm not sure if matterport has considered this, but for the publicity alone they should take over hosting models that the scanner/us no longer can or want. Seems like a smart thing to do to have a product saturation in the market (to a point)
