There are several factors that influence our service fees:

  • the amount of space being scanned
  • the amount of time we estimate it will take
  • the distance traveled to your site

We offer additional pricing flexiblility in situations where one or more of the following conditions exist:

  • the client commits to multiple models over time
  • the client is a charitable organization
  • there is in-kind promotion value to us

Our base service fee is $250 and we suggest using $.15/sq ft as a budgeting tool.

We would be happy to provide you with a quotation consistent with your needs. Please request prices and more information here.

It depends largely on the space and how it is broken up. A large open ballroom , for example, might take the same amount of time as a small residence with rooms and hallways. For real estate applications, we usually figure on taking about 30-45 minutes to scan each 1,000 square feet, so a typical 2,000 square foot home can be scanned in about 60 to 90 minutes.

Matterport specs suggest that a model can contain up to 200 scans. and approximately 10,000 square feet. This serves as a good guideline, but we have crerated a model consisting of 365 scans and a space that was over 17,500 sq ft. For residential properties, 200 scans are sufficient to build models up to approximately 10,000 square feet. The exact square footage will vary depending on the layout of the property and furniture.

The Matterport Pro 3D Camera is designed for indoor use. Direct sunlight can interfere with data collection. That being said, there are some situations where we can scan external spaces such as gardens and patios when there is no direct sunlight (such as at dawn or dusk). We can also create 2D images outdoors using a new technology from Matterport called 360 Views.

Yes, you can download an industry-standard OBJ file, which will contain both the 3D mesh and textures. For a sample OBJ file, download this zip file of the Golden Gate Park Visitors Center.

Yes, we can export photographs in JPG format at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. However, bear in mind these are "frame captures" from the Matterport scanner locations and not of the composition or resolution that we would be able to offer from our photographer and the appropriate camera lens and lighting options.

The Matterport 3D Showcase uses WebGL, the modern standard for 3D content on the web. On desktop computers, WebGL is supported by the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. On mobile devices, WebGL is supported by Safari for iOS 8 and Chrome for Android. To confirm that your browser supports WebGL, visit this test page.

Embedding a model is very straightforward; it is similar to embedding a YouTube video. Here is a sample embed code for a Matterport model:

And here is the result:

Yes, we can create flythrough videos of your 3D "walkthrough" which can then be repurposed for your web and social media platforms.

Yes, we offer 2D detailed floorplans for a flat rate of $99 per 3D model we build. Here is a sample FromAnyAngle floor plan.

We are based in southern California and have clients coast-to-coast. There is a travel fee assessed for services provided outside of a 100-mile radius of our offices.
