Does Chief Architect work with Matterport and if so, how does the Matterport file export and then input into Chief Architect?

Please, describe how this process works if you know? Does it export and then import as a 3ds file?

Matterport does not, has no ability to "import" into Chief other than manually. Basically what it does is to digitally measure visually and spatially what is scanned into it for later use by someone creating an "as built". Someone goes to the remodel location and scans each room to be duplicated, the scan is visual, digital ,accurate and 360 degree. Then the results are uploaded to the "cloud" where it can then be read and measured in a browser for input MANUALLY  into Chief or other CAD programs. I have a Remodel firm in Dallas who uses Matterport for all of their projects and it worked well. It has NO capability to export or import any 3D file formats, it mainly saves time over measuring every remodel location. A minimally trained person can then be hired to set up and operate the Matterport machine that records the data on site to bring the as built measurements to drafts-persons to model by way of the Matterport cloud server..

There are several recent posts on this subject I recommend searching and reading through. You have the ability to import a 3d model as a symbol and cut it for tracing is the short answer.
