    Hi all,

    Wondering if anyone has had experience with ANY brand of 360 camera that doesn't cost the earth that export files into a CAD program? Hard to get that info from the web and don't want to spend a few grand on a proper surveying setup.

    All of the consumer 360 cameras are going to output straight to .jpg with embedded instructions for how to stretch the image into a sphere. Because that doesn't convey depth, I'm not sure CAD software would be able to do much with that output.

    For exporting to a 3D model you would be better off with something like the Structure sensor. You won't be able to just snap a single picture, you'd have to scan the whole room, but it might be worth looking into. In addition, there was a thing for Google Tango that let you scan rooms, but I'm having a hard time finding it now.

    The only room scanning device I know of is fairly expensive. It's the Matterport camera, and it's $4,500 USD. Still, if you are going to be using it frequently for business, the cost could be offset fairly quickly.
