Our 3D Camera is placed in multiple positions throughout the space. In each position, the camera rotates with its built-in motor to gather data in 360 degrees. The data is then uploaded into the cloud for processing. It typically takes 24 hours for the data to be processed into a Model. The Model is then available to be shared online with a web link or embedded directly into a website.
A traditional virtual tour isn’t really virtual. It’s just a gallery of stationary panoramic photos. Although techniques vary, most traditional tours don’t allow the viewer to move around within the space. At the very most, traditional tours offer 10 individual locations to view the space. Traditional photographers use DSLR cameras to capture multiple photos which are then stitched together to form a panorama which is viewed from a player.
Our 3D virtual tours allow the viewer to explore the space in up to 200 locations that are seamlessly stitched together. We use high tech Matterport 3D cameras which have 12 cameras and sensors to not only capture photos but to create a polygon mesh. This mesh is rendered into a dynamic 3D model which can be explored online or even with a virtual reality headset such as an Oculus Rift! Plus, our 3D models also show a “Floor Plan View” as well as a “Dollhouse View” to allow the viewer to conceptualise the space.
Embedding a model is very straightforward; it’s similar to embedding a YouTube video. Simply copy and paste the HTML code that we will provide. If you’re not feeling too tech savvy, we can help you.
200 scans would be enough to build a model of an area up to 15,000 square feet. That can vary, depending on the layout of the property and furniture.
A model can be made from up to 200 scans.

3D models are best suited for interiors but if there is no harsh direct sunlight, exterior spaces may be included such as decks and patios.
