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.

Once a new home build begins, one of the next steps is to begin designing the interior of the space. A digital twin of a build in its infancy gives the builders, contractors, and buyers the remote access needed to reduce both cost and time during a project. In addition, it is a useful tool when designing the interior of the space. With both measurement and virtual staging capabilities, a virtual walk through gives a visual perspective that can only be matched by physically walking the property. 


Once a property is in its final building stages, planning the home decoration and design of the space is the next step! Metroplex 360 offers Matterport Scans, Interior and Exterior HDR Photography, Aerial Photography and Floor Plans making interior design planning a breeze! Potential buyers are able to get the entire visualization of a property and interior designers are able to use these elements within future portfolios.


Implementing Mattertags within a Matterport Showcase provides added information to specific elements inside the space. Notated with a circular blue icon, these mattertags are easy to identify and can include a description of an item and pricing.
