Capture Mode: Cluster Shot

Capture Mode: Cluster Shot

Cluster Shot mode allows the user to capture a cluster of photos in an area.

Once uploaded, CupixWorks automatically aligns and maps the photos to the reference plan based on the initial position and capture direction you select.

We recommend this mode if you need to create high quality captures of your jobsite that can support measurements in SiteView.

Note: You can take up to 400 photos per area.

Cluster Shot Requirements

Before creating a capture in Cluster Shot Mode, you must be certified by taking the Cluster Shot Basic Course available for free HERE. Let your CSM know once you have completed it so they can activate the mode as an option for you.

After you have taken the course, make sure you understand how to space your photos and are familiar with best practices for taking 360° photos. We strongly recommend practicing this capture method with the hardware setup you plan to use before going onsite.
