How to Build a 3D CAD Model: New Tools for Generating a 2D Floor Plan and a 3D CAD Model

Hi All,

Building a 2D Floor Plan and 3D CAD Model is now possible within the Cupix Platform.

If you are a Service Provider targeting the AEC Space (Architecture, Engineering, Construction), you now have a wealth of easy, fast and affordable solutions to offer (and can do this within a White Label solution.)

Cupix CAD Modeling Highlights Include

✓ Cupix 3D Tour (360º Survey) is generated automatically from any source of 360º photos.
✓ Alignment precision (accuracy) 1 percent with helmet mounted capture (meaning accuracy is one foot over 100 feet). 
Build 3D CAD Model within Cupix 3D CAD System.
✓ 
Within the Cupix platform lives a complete 3D CAD modeling system made specifically to transform a Cupix 3D Tour (360º Survey) into a 3D CAD Model.
✓ Precise Measurements can be extracted from Cupix 3D Tour (360º Survey) to set windowsdoors; and other openings quickly, accurately and easily. 
✓ The Cupix 3D Mesh can be helpful during the modeling process especially in complex buildings.
✓ Once completed the model can be exported in 2D and 3D Formats 
✓ Import the Cupix 3D CAD model for use in a variety of CAD Systems file formats including: .DFX.IFC.PNG [Direct RVT export from Cupix not supported. IFC is the supported 3D format. Import from Cupix as IFC allows import into Revit, Navisworks, Sketchup and other CAD Packages.]
✓ Open the Cupix CAD Model in programs like RevitNavisWorks; and SketchUp for 3D Design3D Management; or 3D Analysis
✓ Open the Cupix CAD Model in programs such as: Revit, NavisWorks, SketchUp for 3D Design, 3D Management or 3D Analysis.
✓ Other uses of the Cupix 3D Model include: construction progress by comparing the Cupix CAD Model to other Cupix Tours (360º Surveys) directly within Cupix 
✓ Add 3D Pins and 3D Tags on the Cupix CAD Model for issue tracking or or asset management.

Cupix Director of Sales Scott Anderson - and Cupix Head of Product Paul Collart - will be my guests on WGAN-TV Live at 5 on Thursday, 20 December 2018 to give us a demo of building a 3D CAD Model within the Cupix platform and a discussion about this workflow. Feel free to join the show live to ask Scott your questions.

How to use the Cupix SLAM App to streamline capturing 360º photos paired with a 360º 1-click camera

 

Hi All,

Creating a Cupix 3D Tour will get even easier and faster with the soon-to-be-released Cupix SLAM app (iOS) to streamline capturing 360º photo spheres paired with these 360º 1-click cameras:

✓ Ricoh Theta V
✓ Insta360 One X (Cupix SLAM App integration in January 2018)
✓ Panono (Cupix SLAM App integration in January 2018)
✓ Mi Sphere
✓ MADV Madventure

The Cupix SLAM App is current in beta. Contact Cupix Support to request access.

While it has always been easy to capture 360º photos with a 360º 1-click camera and upload the 360º photo spheres to Cupix, the Cupix SLAM app leverages the ARKit - the powerful iOS Augmented Reality library - to automatically tracks your camera route or path during 360º photo sphere capture. Camera can be mounted on a helmet; pole; or tripod mounted. 

Cupix SLAM App works indoors or outdoors. No extra localization sensors - like 3D lasers or Beacon - needed.

(SLAM = Simultaneously Localizing And Mapping)

I could imagine that Cupix will integrating more 360º 1-click cameras. 

You can use any 360º 1-click camera - without the Cupix Mobile Capture App - to create 360º photos and upload to Cupix.

Cupix Director of Sales Scott Anderson and Cupix Head of Product Strategy Paul Collart will be my guests on WGAN-TV Live at 5 on Tuesday, 18 December 2018 to give us a demo of the soon-to-be-released Cupix Mobile Capture App - paired with a 360º 1-Click Camera and discuss this easier and faster workflow for capturing and creating a 3D Tour with CUPIX. Feel free to join the show live to ask Scott your questions.

Matterport versus CUPIX discussion of CUPIX's White-Label

Hi All,

If you are a professional photographer seeking a white-label 3D Tour solution - something that Matterport does NOT offer – check this out ...

Above is the today's (Thursday, 16 August 2018) WGAN-TV Live at 5 about the CUPIX White-Label Solution.

CUPIX Director of Sales Scott Anderson (@scott_CUPIX) also demos:

✓ CUPIX blur features
✓ CUPIX color correction feature
✓ CUPIX different shape and style icons

What do you think?

Best,

Dan

P.S. Love Matterport? That's great. Competition will help encourage Matterport to be responsive to the Matterport Service Provider Community ...

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 Sites

The CUPIX Marketing Video says:

✓ 20x Cheaper to start [than using a 3D scanner [like Matterport]
✓ 10x faster to capture

Features include:

✓ overlays (annotation such as measurements)
✓ viewers of the model can make their own measurements

How 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,

Dan

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 ArchitectureEngineering 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 capture
2. Google Street View Pros – seeking additional ways to leverage your expertise in 3D Tour capture
3. AEC Executives – seeking solutions to making money, saving money, time and improving workflow
4. 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,

Dan

P.S. This demo on WGAN-TV Live at 5 will be the first public dedicated demo on AEC with CUPIX.
