How long does it take to scan a typical home?
On average, it takes about 60 minutes to scan 100 meters squared, so a typical 250 meters squared property can be scanned in about 2.5 hours.
Scan time can vary based on the complexity of the location and other factors. For example, open commercial real estate properties with less geometric detail can often be scanned more quickly than heavily occluded spaces like MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing) rooms.
