CubiCasa introduces a new service, measuring the home surface area using Matterport 3D showcase source files. We developed an algorithm that generates the measurements automatically, with no additional costs. All you need is the existing Matterport showcase link, the OBJ file and clicking the “total sq ft measurement included” and “room dimensions” checkboxes on the Matterport ordering site.
We promise that when the showcase is captured good enough, the measured surface area is accurate for commercial use. The error margin is tested being within 2%.
The default measurement unit is square feet. If you prefer square meters or both, state this in order form’s “Additional info” section.
For Matterport photographers, the service helps you in improving your services and quality. Showing the room dimensions is your competitive advantage. The option also helps you setting the pricing right, when based on actual figures (surface area) and not an ambiguous one (like hourly rate). Keeping things simple is great customer service!
For homebuyers, the surface unit price is seen as an important piece of information in making big decisions. Knowing the exact measurements remains important even after buying and actually living in the home. For example in cases of renovations, floor improvements and their pricing, the accurate measurements have already been made, helping these future options.
The technical information is seen on our https://www.cubi.casa/faq/total-sqft-spec/ website. With the CubiCasa floor plan service, the measuring costs get saved for your other purposes, and you can give your customers a full services floor plan package.
Furthermore, we have added a possibility to purchase CAD compatible floor plans (DXF) and 3D models (IFC), and also developer friendly SVG floor plan. At the moment the DXF files are available via firstname.lastname@example.org, also for answering your other questions!
