Mike Chawaga: This is an example of a File, Dan, of a 100 percent BLK360 in this facility.
Dan Smigrod: -I’m sorry, could you take us widescreen on that so we could see a little more detail? Yeah, thank you.
Mike Chawaga: -All right. You can see here that these traditional errors in the BLK360 is just not mastering the light like Matterport has master.
Dan Smigrod: -This is shot totally with the BLK360?
Mike Chawaga: -Correct.
Dan Smigrod: -Was this using the Matterport platform or was this done –
Mike Chawaga: -Yeah, this is using the Matterport Capture app.
Dan Smigrod: -Matterport Capture app plus a BLK360. Entirely shot with BLK360. Right now we’re seeing that photography view of it.
Mike Chawaga: -Yeah and you can see it’s a little washed out, it doesn’t get you your blue sky. Then again, this is low density. This does not have HDR turned on. If you did have HDR turned on, you could expect to get rid of all this white.
Dan Smigrod: -But to the point of the use case, we haven’t discussed the use case, but I would imagine marketing this space as is – was not high on the list.
Mike Chawaga: -No. Yeah, they just want a rough and dirty Matterport. Then the use case for this is a historical application. We need to model all of these brick soldiers up here, which you can see up here: 90 percent on this project. But they need all these things to a quarter of an inch.
Dan Smigrod: -Why?
Mike Chawaga: -for the historical board to get passed through the municipality. That’s the kind of documentation that is required to touch this older building here. Another application from a laser scanning standpoint that I can mention briefly here is we had to inspect all the steel and the base pair here. What we did was just taking videos and embedding them in here and just, you know, so if you’re servicing an architect in this space and you need to get close-up steel or they didn’t know how many plates are on that?
Mike Chawaga: Yeah, sorry how many plates are on it. We’ll take close up photos like this so the architect can inspect it if you look at our architecture’s documentation workflow and they’re out there with their cell phone doing all the videos like this. If you have a semi-geo specific location of tagging the Matterport, it’s really a nice organizer for all your field data if you could just tag it in there. That’s what we had to do for all of these beams.
Dan Smigrod: -All those tags are videos?
Mike Chawaga: -All these tags are just close up videos of the conditions of these old steel here. You can see this thing is ready to come down.
Mike Chawaga: Our Revit modelers: our CAD drafting team, Dan, we’ll have that Matterport tour. Then they’ll be drafting in that .RVT file: that detail.
Dan Smigrod: -I think what I was hearing Mike was yet some more use cases. Clients needed to get the okay of the zoning board or a historic building prior to beginning construction, and to do that they needed a lot of – a very detailed level to be able to capture the architectural features of that building.
Dan Smigrod: Presumably we’re going to keep that in their final design as being part of what is historic about that building.
