    Canvas, Scan to CAD Chief Architect

    Hi Chris, I just started using this. I have several projects in the works, One is a Matterport Scan of an interior manually done to Chief with the exterior scanned in Hover 3D. As soon as I receive the deliverable from Canvas comes in, I'll be able to compare and see how the accuracy is. I am sure the folks over at Canvas are watching :-)

    Canvas, Scan to CAD Chief Architect

    Is anyone using Canvas scan to CAD? I am using it for all my as-builts in the field up in the Gold Country. I the new Ipad Pro 12.9 fourth-gen with the new LIDAR camera with the Canvas app. you can find it here: What file formats and programs does Scan To CAD export? The Short Answer Scan To CAD is available in four packages: 2D Floor Plan ($15 per scan, and includes a 2D .pdf, 2D .dwg, and 2D .skp), SketchUp ($29 per scan, and includes a 3D.skp, 3D .dwg, and 3D .dae file), Revit ($39 per scan, and includes a 3D .rvt, 3D .dwg, and 3D .ifc file), and Chief Architect ($39 per scan, and includes a 3D .plan, 3D .dwg, and 3D .dae file). You can download our sample data package here to experiment with real, Canvas-generated CAD models for yourself! Attached is the original source file from Canvas. I scanned one day and got it the next. Also some screenshots. Nov 9, 2020 at 3-16-56 PM.plan
  5. Matterport has the floor plan and ceiling plan as a Matterpack that helps with accurate tracing. For greater versatility, the point cloud can be imported in as an .obj file format.
