Leica BLK360 + Matterport Mashup with MSP Metroplex 360 in Dallas
Jul 25th, 2018 by Dan Smigrod
What's it like to use the BLK360 with Matterport? Learning curve? Capture Workflow? Demo and discussion
✓ What's it like to use a Leica Geosystems BLK360 Imaging Laser Scanner mashed up with Matterport?
✓ What's the learning curve for a Matterport Pro to use the Leica BLK360?
✓ What's the capture workflow of BLK360 + Matterport?
These are some of the questions that I will ask @Metroplex360 Founder Chris Hickman on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET | GMT -4) on Friday, 20 April 2018. Chris has a BLK360 on loan and is taking it for a spin this week and next week and sharing his Matterport + BLK360 experience with us.
If you are shooting Matterport for Architects or Engineers in the Construction (AEC) Space - or want to - you will want to watch this episode of WGAN-TV Live at 5. Better yet: Join the Virtual Studio Audience to join the discussion and ask Chris your questions.
When Matterport completes its beta testing of Matterport + Leica BLK360, will you be ready to leverage your Matterport expertise to scale your business in the AEC Space? I could imagine that it will take just one or two large-scale AEC projects to pay for investing (or renting) a Leica BLK360 camera.
Leica Geosystems and Matterport announced their partnership on 26 September 2017. There have been many discussions in the We Get Around Network Forum about the BLK360 Camera since then.
Can't watch the show live or join the virtual studio audience? What questions should I ask Chris?
I could imagine that Matterport and Leica will complete their beta testing in time for the 2018 SPAR3D Expo & Conference (June 5-7, 2018 in Anaheim, CA).
I could imagine that Matterport and Leica will WOW the AEC audience with a demo and presentation (whom will immediately want to find 3D Tour photographers that can deliver this solution).
I will be reporting for WGAN-TV from SPAR3D.
