This digital version of a pin-up space is absolutely an improvement to my workflow. The input is so robust. What you do with it is where the magic happens. This program is best suited for team collaboration. It helps to discuss how/where the team will contribute information to it--whether that is discussing the templates or a plan of action. Otherwise, the workspace can tend to get messy. I like the idea of having a presentation mode, where some of the markups could be hidden. The idea of a working session with consultants or clients sounds appealing, but at the same time, there is a desire for a cleaned up, clear shareout.

Matterport is very well suited for showing what a space looks like without having to have contractors, designers, or clients on-site multiple times. We have used Matterport to send out existing and current information to help with bidding, design, and construction documentation. The Matterport app does not do as well on the outside of a building where there are not a lot of differences in-between scans. Matterport does work very well for interior spaces, homes, and businesses.

Easy to use and very intuitive. Easy to demonstrate to potential clients. Read full review Cons You can use Zoom with Bluescape but it requires solid bandwidth and memory by users. A breadcrumb trail would be nice to watch students performance. I would like individual user analytics for each of my students to see where they’ve been and what contributions each has made. Read full review The Matterport Capture app has some bugs and issues where some scans don't align well and additional time is needed re-scan in the same location multiple times.

We have Workware installed on different computers in our office that were supposed to be great for presentation but we had issues after a user connected their laptop then they no longer had access to our server. If they had files they needed for the presentation they had to save them to their desktop to make sure they were accessible.

We have looked at other, "Matterport like" products. One of the greatest advantages Matterport has over the other products we have reviewed is the ability to automatically create 3d walkthroughs and host the walkthroughs where we need them. Many of the "Matterport like" apps focus on Showing existing homes and spaces. We have used Matterport for this purpose but our primary use is to show the process of a construction project from the beginning, throughout, and to the finished product.
