Living Spaces, a nationwide 135,000 sqft home furnishings retailer, commissioned Metroplex360 RCS to create a massive Matterport 3D model of their new showroom. The newly opened Frisco store is the second location in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and the 26th total for the company. The Frisco location offers collections in living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, home offices, outdoor and youth.
Capturing this massive commercial real estate project required pushing the Matterport Capture ecosystem to its limits. Capture was done over a period of 6 days, beginning with a structural scan with the LEICA BLK 360. We used a true LIDAR capture device to ensure accuracy and create a framework for filling in additional 3D scans with the Matterport Pro-2.
Due to the extensive size, the tour was split into 2 separate models. The larger model encompasses the main sales floor and features 1,352 individual scan points. The smaller model is an additional 268 scans and features the Revive Sleep Center, bedding and youth sections. The two models flow together naturally through a dividing wall where Mattertags were used to link the two models.
During the initial capture, the Matterport Capture software began to crash and stop performing due to memory restrictions. We reached out to technical support and it was confirmed that this may be the largest tour captured and they could not even guarantee that it would process to a completed model!
We perservered, upgraded our iPads to the latest generation model and waited while it took 5 days to process the final product. We were thrilled to provide the final product to Spaces, which will debut on their website soon (we’ll update this article with a link when it’s live!)
We also had the opportunity to create a set of showroom imagery showcasing the different mini-model homes located in the store as well as aerial photography of the exterior.
