Matterport BIM file
Create BIM files from your space — it’s faster, easier, and more cost effective than ever.

Get the Matterport Advantage

Our 3D data platform is the most powerful, accurate, and quickest way to document a building or property. With a compatible camera, you can capture anything from small to large spaces — both inside and outside — with the highest level of detail.

3D scanning that fits your workflow

Our platform automatically stitches all your data together and lets you export your data into other platforms easily, saving you significant amounts of manual work and time.

Create 3D walkthroughs and guide anyone immediately to a virtual site tour.

  • Communicate key milestones quickly and effectively by eliminating travel time and by sharing and annotating in the model to get sign-offs.
  • Perform remote inspections, measure while offsite, and reduce site visits by capturing all data the first time.

Learn how Swinerton used Matterport to reduce client travel time by 100 percent and eliminate four weeks of potential project delays.

How 3D scan to BIM can reduce design and construction costs

Incorporating Matterport into your BIM (Building Information Modelling) process can help reduce virtual design and construction costs and help you win more bids.

  • Export your point cloud and easily share and render it within Revit® and other BIM tools.
  • Generate OBJ files and point clouds for as-builts and construction documentation.
  • Scan tight areas 10–15 times faster than with a typical lidar scanner.
  • Overlay your point cloud onto your BIM model to conduct verification.
  • Take measurements in difficult to access areas such as pipes, trusses, and ceiling beams.

Get the accuracy you need from a single source

Matterport provides incredible accuracy and easy measurement in the platform.

  • Capture spaces that are accurate within 1% using a Matterport Pro2 camera and 0.1% with Leica BLK360.
  • Replace thousands of photos by capturing all imagery and data at once, and save time by eliminating the need to document, arrange, and label photos.
  • Get reflected ceiling plan images and schematic floor plans.
  • Eliminate registration markers or manual alignment.

You'll be in good company

  • At Corgan, we used the Matterport Pro2 camera during a project at LAX. The technology allowed us to efficiently scan existing conditions, capture key milestones, create virtual punch lists, document progress and share 3D models with owners and facility managers.

  • The initial 30.5 hours we invested in scanning MEP facilities of Toronto Western Hospital was essential to an efficient modeling workflow. Capturing good, reliable scan data ensured our remaining 300 hours of modeling MEP systems in Autodesk Revit was seamless.

  • I won't do a multi-story building without a Matterport camera.

  • We began using Matterport to give our engineers and designers a more effective way to engage with clients, contractors, and one another,” Mehr said. “After scanning the space, we annotate and share punch-lists from the Matterport Cloud, eliminating the need for 10-15 people to attend site surveys.
