How long does it take to scan this building weekly for CupixWorks? (how)?2. Using CupixWorks, how does our team compare: BIM to actual weekly construction documentation?3. Using CupixWorks, how does our team compare: week-to-week construction documentation? Thanks to Gannon Wilder (@Gannon_Cupix) for being on the WGAN-TV Podcast. I hope to have Gannon back to give us a tour of the Cupix backend content management system.Best,DanCupix Links✓ Cupix Website✓ CupixWorks 2.0 Landing Page✓ Cupix LinkedIn Profile✓ Cupix Facebook Page

Are you looking for a Matterport alternative? How CUPIX Compares to Matterport -- Hi All,Are you looking for a Matterport alternative? How does CUPIX compare to Matterport?CUPIX enables you to create 3D Tours with any 360º Camera and processing the images using computer vision technology to create a 3D walking experience like a Matterport 3D Tour.It's free while it is in Beta.On WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm EST | GMT -5) today, Tuesday, 21 November 2017, CUPIX Director of Sales Scott Anderson will demo and discuss CUPIX for Newbies (and share some new features). Plus, I will ask Scott how CUPIX compares Matterport.I anticipate that Scott will use the 360º photos that I shot at a hotel on Friday with an Insta360 One Camera to show and tell how to create a tour with CUPIX.CUPIX will be targeting these markets:✓ Real Estate Marketing✓ Construction SitesThe CUPIX Marketing Video says:✓ 20x Cheaper to start [than using a 3D scanner [like Matterport]✓ 10x faster to captureFeatures include:✓ overlays (annotation such as measurements)✓ viewers of the model can make their own measurementsHow CUPIX Works (from the CUPIX website):Shoot 360º Photos – Take photos of the interior of a building with [any] off-the-shelf 360-degree camera. It only takes about 2~10 seconds at each location.Upload – Upload 360-degree photos to our cloud server, and then you are done capturing the scene. It sorts out camera locations and computes the 3D geometry.Customize – Finalize the 3D virtual tour to make it best serve your business using our Online Editor. You can custom brand the Web Player with your company logo.Share – Share the 3D virtual tour with collaborators and publish it to the world instantly. Allow viewers to measure actual dimensions in the Web Player.In addition to asking Scott – CUPIX versus Matterport – what else should I ask @scott_cupix ...?Best,DanP.S.

Split Screen: Compare 3D Tour to the BIM Model; 3D Tour Compared to 3D Tour (progress visualization) ---- Hi All,I had a chance to preview a new CUPIX solution for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) space this week.In one word, I describe it as "Magical" ... ✓ 3D Tour with integrated, interactive floor plan✓ Ability to compare 3D Tours in a split panel at two different points in time✓ Ability to compare 3D Tour vs Revit 3D BIM model in a split panel.Learn more on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET | GMT -4) on Thursday, 19 April 2018[/b]. with CUPIX Director of Sales Scott Anderson (@scott_cupix) - whom has appeared on WGAN-TV twice before (see above videos) - and CUPIX Head of Product Strategy Paul Collart (@pcollart) whom together will demo and discuss this unique new - "Magical" - CUPIX solution.This is a "must watch" WGAN-TV show for:1. Matterport Service Providers – seeking additional ways to leverage your expertise in 3D Tour capture2. Google Street View Pros – seeking additional ways to leverage your expertise in 3D Tour capture3. AEC Executives – seeking solutions to making money, saving money, time and improving workflow4. Anyone thinking about buying a Matterport Camera specifically for AEC opportunities"In order to showcase the new feature, we've collected 360 photos over 6 weeks at a construction site to create virtual tours which can be compared against each other and against the 3D BIM (Revit) model," said Scott in an email to me this week offering the preview.I could imagine that when CUPIX presents this solution at the 2018 SPAR3D Expo & Conference (June 5-7, 2018 in Anaheim, CA) that CUPIX will WOW the AEC audience (whom will immediately want to find 3D Tour photographersthat can deliver this solution).If you are in the AEC space - Join the Virtual Studio Audience – to join the discussion and ask Scott questions.Thanks for tuning in.Best,DanP.S.
