House designed in chief too!  Built it 2 years ago

 

Very Nice Justin!  Great design, and thanks for sharing your preliminary Matterport results.  That may put the fun back into doing as-builts.;)

how many sample locations did you use?

 

I believe each location is marked by a ring on the floor as you go to each of those exact locations and look straight down the tripod is blurred out.

That's pretty stinkin' cool.  If nothing else, it seems like the ability to record and review basic site conditions alone might be worth it.  How long did that "scan" take, and how many sample locations did you use?

 

That was aprox 20 scans.    It was very haphazard.   I took the time later to read tips and tricks and I would do it better if It were for a job.

 

I think it took me about 15min.   This thing is pretty awesome.   If I had a detailed model, you can pay for a full 3D file in OBJ format.   You can get whatever dims you want off that.   I checked a few sample dims (using the little tape measure tool on the viewer) and it is dead nuts!  Certainly within the margin of error of measuring post drywall.

Thanks! 

The design is a compromise between what my wife and I like.   I like modern and she like more traditional.  Here is a rendering I did early 2016 when the house was just a dream.  This I where I believe in the power of what Chief can do.   (but I did render movies in lumion ;) )

 

 

Here is then Sept 2016 where I was tightening up my cab layouts.

 

 

 

House is a courtyard home with pool in center.   It is a super energy efficient home.   I used a staggered stud 2x8 wall system I got an engineer to bless, and have full foam encapsulation. (Including attic).     I hired an energy consultant to help me size my equipment.   It is 8600 HSF and the cooling load for 95deg design temp down in North Carolina had us at 3.6 TOTAL tons cooling (on max day).    I put in a crazy system...(might bore your guys but has variable speed indoor AND outdoor unit.   The outdoor unit can bring itself down to about 1.4 ton by running slower, therefore optimizing run efficiency.   It was a fun project for sure.  Designing for one's self can be the most fun, but like every client, I wish I had more in the budget!!!!

 I HATE 'as builts'!  I dont like doing remodels for that reason alone.    For what I would have to charge to take the time to do it, I cant really justify.    But this really changes all that.   I actually agreed to do a remodel recently for a long time client.  I cant wait to try this out!

Wow...That's hard to believe.  If its true, I salute you...you must have been sprinting too and fro, and must be crazy fast at setting up that tripod (assume there is one). 
 

Okay, I guess it doesn’t sound too crazy.  Pretty fast though considering the camera itself must take a little time at each location too.  I’d be curious as to how much time it takes you from the moment you open the thing up to the moment it’s put away.  Let me know if you ever actually time it.

I'll bought a nice tripod with a center handle.   It takes 15-20 sec to scan and another 10 or so for it to process data and update your scan on ipad.   After the initial scan, you can move the camera before it has processed the image.  As soon as the new image pops up, hit scan again.  Rinse and repeat.

 

My scan was kind of haphazard and for for doing more accurate work, I would have thrown in more points.  But I was just excited to run something thought it!

 

My mom is visiting, and she sat at the island the whole time.  My dog appears 3 or 4 times because she was following me around ;)

 

It really is pretty easy.   For "as builts", if you are not worried about being in the pics, you can speed up the process a BUNCH since you dont have to go around a corner.   I ducked out for most of them, but didnt bother for others.

 

There are cheaper 360 cams (400-800) that are compatible w/ matterport hosting, but they are not accurate enough. They are also aprox 24mp vs 134mp (matterport pro)  They totally rely on the visual stitching.   The matterport has 6 lenses and 3 what I think are laser rangefinders.   The "Pro" camera gets all the 3d measurement data whereas the cheaper cams dont give that info.   The would probably work for simple realestate listing though.

 

I am going to play with it a bit more and see what else I can learn.   Will share for sure!

Messing with an obj file from a Matterport a client of mine is working on.  Pretty cool what you can do with it.  Here is a quick pbr shot once I removed the ceiling layer with the slider.
