E57 Files – The PDF of the 3D World

What is an E57 File?

The E57 file type is a compact, vendor-neutral pointcloud format that allows images captured in 3D to be shared for remote viewing. This gives the ability to extract data from a digital twin with ten times the detail of a traditional Matterpak.

What are the benefits of an E57 File?

E57 files give AEC professionals and designers the ability to collaborate more effectively which can save cost and reduce time during the work flow process. The additional detail of these files also give the best understanding of the space when viewing remotely.

How To Enhance Your Virtual Tour

Digital Twin technology is revolutionizing the way people interact with property both personally and professionally.  Whether you are a designer working on a new project, retail shop looking to provide a virtual shopping experience, restaurant concept, or hunting for your next home or office space – a Digital Twin provides remote viewing and an unmatchable perspective. 

Making your digital twin stand apart from the next includes paying attention to the details within your virtual scan! Metroplex 360 is able to provide some additional overlay options that give you the added touch needed to emphasize your space’s virtual tour.

One feature that may be beneficial to your space, is linking several digital twin scans into a single showcase. This can be helpful when you have multiple spaces that are not physically linked. This gives your intended viewer one showcase link that they are able to click through, without the hassle of toggling between multiple links to get the full picture.

Strategically placing a logo within your digital twin adds consistency to your business and your businesses branding strategy. It has become increasingly more important to input a logo as an added detail in order to stand apart from competing virtual tours. A banner logo can be added to display during the loading process of the virtual tour, as well as into the details summary page.
