What’s faster about it exactly? I haven’t used it yet with the new update?

Can confirm that this is faster. However, I did run into one issue where it said the Lidar was overheating and wouldn’t scan. After many reboots, I turned on “Lidar Power Saving Mode” and it solved my issue. Scans are a few seconds faster, enough so that I can’t let my ADHD brain go on a joyride while I wait for it to scan, lol

Faster capture time… from when you press the “shutter” to when it’s captured and ready to move to another location.


:open_mouth: Overheating hey? Wow, sounds serious really. Did you have the live lidar feature turned on? It shows the green outline on your phone being updated live according to camera movement/placement.

I did. It was the first message I seen starting my second scan. But it wasn’t even warm. I’m thinking it’s something else. It never got hot at all doing 4 shoots that day. In fact it’s the coolest I’ve felt the planix since this update.

Hey Sam!

Thank you! I really appreciate that. I’ll reply to it as soon as possible.


Just a quick update for everyone. Spoke with the amazing customer support at iGuide and we troubleshooted the issue. It seems as though it was just a rare situation on my first shoot, as we could not replicate the issue. There hasn’t been an issue since, even with the lidar NOT in power save mode.
I scanned a 1800 SF home today in half the time it normally would take for me. It’s super fast and had zero issues!

I did update to the latest Ricoh theta z1 firmware and I have say if you haven’t done so already. Do it! The windows aren’t a complete white-out in scans. I can actually see what’s outside now.
