  1. Turn on all lights and open doors before scanning.

  2. Scan the whole property (including all floors and any detached garage/porch) in one continuous scan.

  3. Tilt the device slightly down and point the camera straight ahead toward the walking direction.

  4. Focus on the floors. No need to show more than 3 feet (1 meter) of the wall.

  5. Scan no closer than 5 feet (1.5 meters) and no farther than 11 feet (3 meters) from walls and furniture.

  6. Turn calmly and back out of narrow spaces rather than turning around.

  7. Scan small spaces through the door opening without entering the space.

  8. You should only scan ceilings that are less than 7 feet.

  9. Scan the ceiling at a slight upwards angle so the ceiling and other context are visible in the frame.

  10. Do not scan directly under the ceiling you are capturing.

  11. Do not scan the ceilings for over 5 seconds.

Watch an example of a CubiCasa scan to see how it works in practice:
