3D learning – Colleagues in Lübeck receive instrunctions in Matterport
Veröffentlicht am: 10.12.2021
November 11th and 12th a seminar regarding the software Matterport took place in Lübeck. Thanks to the organisation of Siegfried Plickert and Sebastian Berg we came into contact with Noah de Groot of Nemarex through a foreign collaboration with a long term client and partner. Mr. de Groot instructed 7 colleagues in how to use the popular 3D-Scan software.
What is Matterport and what can it do?
Matterport is a software, which makes the previously very complex technology of 3D-Scanning accessible to common mobile devices.
Instead of expensive equipment and hard to gain Know-how in specific software, you now simply need a tablet or even just a smartphone to create compelling virtual 3D-Tours of large areas.
Where is Matterport commonly used?
The areas of usage for Matterport are thus quite divers. While the software has previously been used largely in the Real Estate Sector, the company has since expanded their customer base significantly. In addition to gastronomy and retailers, Matterport is now being used by insurers as well. Of particular interest to us are of course the technological applications. We can find examples for this in architecture as well as engineering.
How can we use Matterport?
This of course begs the question of how exactly Matterport can be implemented into the processes of R+S Stolze. The colleagues who to part in the seminar, agree that Matterport has a lot of potential for usage at R+S Stolze. Especially the work on construction sites can be made a lot easier. Using the new method for scanning, we can document projects more easily , for example by using it to digitally measure cable routes, cabinets and similar objects. Daniel Soyeaux evaluates the potential as follows: “Due to the easy operation and the good transportability of the camera we can save a lot of resources. Sebastian Berg additionally sees in the application of Matterport with regards to CAD construction. “Matterport offers many interesting add-ons who serve as an interface to CAD-programs.” he elaborates further. Siegfried Plickert especially likes the easy compatibility with DSGVO-Guidelines: “If you scan an area that contains sensitive information, it just takes 2 klicks on your tablet, to blurr it out.”
