All-in-One 3D Scanning
& Reality Capture

Streamline documentation, 3D scan as-builts, and collaborate with ease.
With True Blue 3D & VR Spaces, creating 3D models takes almost no time at all.



We’re are proud to be a 

South African 

Matterport Partner

 

  • At True Blue 3D spaces and Virtual Reality Venues, we have teamed up with Matterport. Matterport is the leader in the immersive media technology, to bring high resolution 3D, VR & 360 walkthroughs for your Facility management and Data collection needs.



3D Virtual Walkthroughs

True Blue 3D & VR immersive 3D construction walkthroughs allow vendors, contractors, architects and facilities managers to walk through their construction site or office space  via desktop, Tablet/iPad, mobile phone and virtual reality glasses. Producing advanced realism with Matterport technology.  Our virtual tours provide complete documentation.


3D Virtual Walk through’s is ideal for:
· 

      QA/QC, Inspection and monitoring·       Confirmation of erected conditions·       Capturing hard-to-visualize spaces·     

  Project marketing ·       Facility Management·       Space Planning ·       Point Clouds available on request·      

 Floor plans available on request


Faster building information modeling

TRUE BLUE 3D & VR offers Spaces to be used as the foundation of your BIM process.
They’re easy to create, and more complete than manual measurements.




3D Showcase

  • Engineers, BIM managers, VDCs, and architects can inspect the site remotely with a virtual tour.
  • The virtual tour is a collection of 360º images deeply connected to the 3D model of the space.
  • Each 360º image is automatically placed in the correct location — no post-processing necessary.
  • Collaborators can use Matterport to create a visual punchlist of tasks that need to be completed.
  • Scan the same job site at different phases to show progress over time (construction documentation).
  • Explore in Virtual Reality
floorplan-measurementpng 3D Measurements
  • Take simple measurements (dimensions) in metric or imperial units. 
  • Measure remotely — no need for a return site visit just to measure.
  • Measure dimensions of objects, rooms, or even the entire job site.
  • Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality.
  • Measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.
stCBKSSdw1G_-_3jpg2D Photography
  • Take simple flat 2D photography from your Matterport Space.
  • Take as many as you like and use them for both print and digital formats. 
  • Download your 2D photos as simple JPG files. 
  • Use for simple team communication or include in the turnover package for your clients.

360º Photospheres
  • Download as many 360º photospheres from the Matterport Space as you like. 
  • A 360º photosphere is the same spherical, panorama imagery that you see in 3D Showcase.
  • Open with a specific tool for editing and viewing 360º images.
conference-room-point-cloudpngColorized Point Clouds
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers. 
  • Open in AutoCAD, ReCap, or Revit and jump-start your as-built designs.
  • Fully automatic point cloud registration of all sweeps (scan positions).
  • Colorized based on the 360º panorama imagery and accurate to within 1% of reality.
ICM_colorplan_000_resizedjpgHigh Resolution Floor Plan Image
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers.
  • Get a quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it.
  • Use in AutoCAD as a tracing element or open in Maya, 3ds Max, or other 3D software.
  • The floor plan is just a unique, orthogonal view of the 3D mesh. Make your own views/slices of the 3D mesh by manipulating the OBJ file yourself.
ICM_ceilingcolorplan_000_previewjpegReflected Ceiling Plan Image
  • For architecture, engineering, and construction customers. 
  • Same as the high-resolution floor plans, but a quick vertical view of everything on the ceiling.
  • See ventilation shafts, wiring, plumbing, insulation, and more.
obj-previewpngOBJ File
  • Matterport combines 3D depth data with 2D visual data to create a textured 3D mesh that is the OBJ file. We sample the OBJ file to create the Dollhouse View in 3D Showcase.
  • An OBJ file is not necessary for most users. 3D developers and VR enthusiasts can use the OBJ file to kickstart their projects with a 3D model of a real-world place.
  • To open we recommend Maya, 3D Studio Max, or Meshlab. For Maya, you may need to convert the OBJ into an FBX file. If you prefer SketchUp you will need a plug-in to import OBJ objects.
  • Our OBJ files have a scale of 1 unit = 1 meter. You may need to update the scale in your 3D software or rescale the model after loading.



3D CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION WITHOUT THE HEADACHE

With only a few simple scans, Matterport can give you quick and effective milestone documentation. With both 2D photography and 3D data, a Matterport Space is the best way to track key milestones and discover issues early.


  • REPLACE THOUSANDS OF PHOTOS

    A single Matterport Space can replace thousands of traditional 2D photos. With the immersive 360º walkthrough, documentation is both engaging and enjoyable. On the Pro2, you can even zoom in and read detailed labels.

    For when you absolutely need 2D photos, they're easy to download from Matterport. You can also get reflected ceiling plan images and high resolution floorplan images for even richer documentation.


  • MEASURE, ANNOTATE, & COMMUNICATE

    Get stakeholders on the same page and give them the detail they need. Tag complicated areas with more information, such as MEP details beneath drywall. Highlight what's most important with a Guided Tour.

    Get the point cloud that accurately details current conditions and then export to Revit to compare with the original design.




  • LEVERAGE FOR THE LONG TERM

    Finally, turn over your documentation to the building owner for long-term facilities management. The owner will be pleased to have this easy-to-use treasure trove of information for future maintenance and renovations.

    It's not just 3D Showcase online. 


For an extreme engineer design quality accuracy. 

The Leica BLK360 

At True Blue 3D & VR Spaces we scan for precision. The equipment use by 
True Blue 3D & VR Spaces is the Leica BLK360 with a 0.35% accuracy. 


Meet Mattertag™ Posts




Mattertag Posts turn Spaces into a multimedia hub. They're anchored to points in the 3D model data, so you're able to add descriptions and embed

almost anything - like additional photos, video, or audio files - right in your 3D Space.

This turns Spaces into a powerful tool for communicating with remote stakeholders, property buyers, prospective lessees, or global audiences.
