I was completely unaware of the LiDAR scanning function. I had no idea what it was until today. I was told that my new iPhone 13 Pro has it so I downloaded this app and am amazed at how it works!! I can do so many things with this option now. I am still trying to figure out how to improve my scans and am not sure what is the best way. So, to have some tutorial videos would be a great option.
The only other thing I see with this app is that there are incomplete scans no matter how you do it. There are always holes in places that you have scanned. However, it is minimal when you take into account how great it works!
I would love to be able to take a complete scan of my home without it crashing but it seems too long of a scan does that. So here is an idea for you……….
Maybe you could make an option to scan rooms separately but later be able to assemble them after the separate scans are done. This way we can make models of our complete houses!
Great work on this app! I am so happy with this creation of yours! Keep up the updates and great work! 😊

Love it!!!

Very happy with this app. It is the only one that is fully
Functional and doesn’t require a dang subscription or pay per scan!! I have one suggestion mainly because I cannot figure it out lol. I would absolutely love a way to make the scan data watertight so when I export the STL it will need minimal modification before printing or importing into CAD. For some reason I am not able to get it to function properly in Solidworks (this is not a fault of this app ) which is a bit annoying because my main hope for this is to use it to generate reference geometries that I can model off of. I am certain there is a way to do it but I haven’t quite figured out the process. Nonetheless I absolutely am blown away with this app and it is everything I was hoping for when the iPhone X came out. The 12 pro just makes it perfect!

This is a game changer.

I’ve been using this app to take quick scans of a room and then be able to revisit those scans to pull measurements. I then use those measurements to order material. It is a great way to visualize the room while you are shopping for the materials. I am sure that you can find many other uses for this app. I am not sure if it allows you to import the files into blender, unreal, or any other app like that, but for what i use it for it is golden. Thank you, please keep up the great work because right now you are the best scanning app I’ve used to date. I would love a decimate feature that would allow us to simplify scans to the most basic geometry, but in an imperfect world you come through perfectly.

Best free 3D LiDAR App to made 3D models!

I’m new to using the LiDAR function of my new iPad Pro and was looking for ways to quickly make 3D models by taking pictures of objects. I tried several of the apps on the AppStore and Scaniverse made the most accurate 3D models, was easy to use, allowed me to crop and change the sharpness and contrast of the image, and let me export the models to multiple 3D image formats. Best of all it is now free (the developer indicated that there is no longer a “Pro” version of the app)! Great job, thank you!

Scan, crop and export with ease

First update: scanning has been simple, but I’m needing to work more to identify if it’s technique or limitation with some intricate details I’m going for… the elusive 5th star when I work out that the hardware/user is the cause. Cropping is a welcome function when working in 3D spaces! Exporting in multiple formats is fast and easy. Developer taking note of store feedback and responding is a bonus!

Original 1-star review: iPhone 13 Pro not actually supported - Even though the device is listed as supported, it won’t go past the demo screen (intended for devices without LiDAR). Looking forward to updating the review when working :)

Hi. There was a bug in Scaniverse where it failed to detect LiDAR support on the iPhone 13 Pro. We're very sorry about that. We have fixed the issue, and an update is now available in the App Store. Please give it a try and let us know what you think. Thank you!

Good, not great

It's 2021, why is there no support for both Landscape and Portrait mode? I have uses for both, why do my apps not support my choice?

Also, I have an iPhone 11 pro max. Now, obviously it doesn't have the LIDAR system but my 2021 ipad pro DOES, and I can share files between the two devices. You mean to tell me you can't let me open and view my own scans on my device which obviously supports viewing because there is the option to "view demo scan" right beside the "lol ur device don't got the lidar" error.

No let me hurry and go buy a new phone so I can view things I made on another device....nope

LiDAR scanner on iPhone 12 Pro - what are the features?

Apple started working on augmented reality in earnest back in 2017, when they managed to make a splash with virtual furniture at IKEA, as well as some pretty realistic Pokemon Go battles. Since then, a lot of water has already flown under the bridge, and today we have a brand new iPhone 12 Pro in our pocket | 12 Pro Max, and we are also starting to collect rumors about the release of Apple's first augmented reality headset - Apple Glass.

Why not Apple Glass?

Why didn't Apple follow the steps of Microsoft and Google by introducing augmented reality glasses first, but took the bold step of introducing a LiDAR scanner into their new iPhone 12? According to Mike Rockwell, head of development at Apple AR, now Apple is more interested not in showing us something out of the ordinary, but in adapting the products that we now have in our pocket as much as possible for the future.

In fact, augmented reality headsets such as the Oculus Quest 2, despite improvements year after year, are of interest to a small number of people. No one talks about the number of VR and AR headsets sold, except for Sony.

Meanwhile, Apple has sold about a hundred million AR-enabled iPhones and iPads since 2017. Apple also says there are already 10,000 AR-enabled iOS apps from 7,000 developers, many focused on shopping or home improvement with AR.

At the same time, Apple's advantage is that the company does not offer the user to install additional software in order to use AR services. You can view the furniture of interest in augmented reality directly from Safari. And with the introduction of App Clips in iOS 14, this procedure should become even easier and more in demand by developers.

Adobe developers created their AR Aero application specifically for iOS and iPadOS, ignoring augmented reality headsets because they understand that much more creators work with iPad and iPhone.

LiDAR - a step towards augmented reality

Apple's first steps in the field of augmented reality were made with the iPhone 8. They consisted only in the recognition of floors using motion sensors, gyroscopes and the phone's built-in camera. Then the iPhone learned to recognize people, animals.

LiDAR-enabled iPhones and iPads invisibly spray an array of infrared lasers, quickly creating a grid (3D display) of all room sizes. It's an evolution of a technology that Google explored years ago with its Tango line of depth-sensing phones, but Apple has done it on a more advanced and broader scale.

Popular social networking site Snapchat is already exploring the use of LiDAR to create augmented reality effects that can turn virtual objects into the real world, and is even running large-scale experiments that scan entire city blocks.

The photography capabilities also seem amazing because the Apple Camera app uses the LiDAR found in the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max to improve the focus of night photos and portraits. But Apple doesn't yet include augmented reality in its camera app and doesn't allow 3D scanning.

These ideas are left for developers to explore.

Some apps, like DSLR Camera, already use LiDAR in the new iPhones to create custom 3D information layers on top of photo data and 3D text overlays on photos.

In addition to these features, LiDAR is helping to detect people in iOS 14.2 now. Thus, expanding the opportunities for people with special needs.

Which applications currently support LiDAR

1. Complete Anatomy 2021

The application allows you to get acquainted with the human anatomy in real time. You can study in detail the structure of muscles, bones and organs in augmented reality. Download from the App Store.

2. RoomScan LiDAR

You can scan your home and quickly create a 3D layout/layout of your room. Download from the App Store.

3. IKEA Place

An app from IKEA that allows you to "try on" various decor items from the store to your home in real time. Download from the App Store.

4. 3d Scanner App

Allows you to scan various objects and create 3D models of your environment quickly with built-in LiDAR. Download from the App Store.

5. RC Club - AR Racing Simulator

RC car simulator that can be controlled in augmented reality. Download from the App Store.

App Clips - the opportunity to develop AR on the iPhone

With the new App Clips feature, which allows you to immediately use the desired app instead of downloading, the prospects for AR on the iPhone increase. This is because a lot of people don't really use augmented reality just because they don't want to go and download some app, register and so on just to look at some AR object. With App Clips coming with iOS 14, you won't need that.

Want to look at some kind of AR object like an exhibit in a museum or a map of the area - all you need to do is scan a QR code.

iPhone LiDAR 3D Scan | arvr.media

As you probably know, the latest generation of iPhone (12 Pro and 12 Pro Max) is equipped with a lidar camera. 3D photography for me is a natural evolution of photography and I have been waiting for this day for almost 10 years.

Several 3D shooting applications have recently been released that take full advantage of this new capability. I have tested almost all of them available, and for the last 3 months I have been actively involved in 3D scanning. I am often asked what apps I recommend and how to get beautiful shots. Here is information about the apps that I love about each, as well as some general tips for using LiDAR on iPhone.

So here are my 6 scanning apps, all of which support exporting directly to Sketchfab:


Scaniverse generally works well, is fast and easy to use, creates great textures, and does a good job of eliminating voids. Make sure you are working with your shots in ultra mode. This tool is very good for scanning things like cars. This frozen Mini is one of my best lidar shots. All my scanner shots are here, and the application is here.


Polycam is fast and handles textures well. You can process the image in HD mode and get instant scan results. Very good for scanning things like rooms or murals and street art. You can see my Polycam shots here, and the app itself is here.

3D scanner app

The 3D scanner app offers a host of options that give you total control. For example, you can easily separate or trim excess space in an application. You can cut even with the help of a sphere. I think the app is especially good for small things like this dollar bill. Make sure you are using HD mode. Here you can see all my 3D scanner app images, and the application can be downloaded here.


Record3D allows you to shoot 3D video, also known as 4D content, i.e. 3D scanning for every frame of the video. Here are my daughter's first steps. Keep in mind that this format ends up with very heavy files, so you only need to shoot for a few seconds to be able to upload the video to Sketchfab. Here you can find all my recordings in Record3D format, and the application is here.


SiteScape is great for quickly creating accurate point clouds. You can adjust the density and size of dots. I like to use it for complex and intricate scenes or structures. Also can be great for cars. This is where all my SiteScape snapshots are located. The application can be found here.


Everypoint is great for large point clouds, like this subway mosaic. The developers are teasing us about the upcoming app update combining lidar and photogrammetry, looking forward to trying it out. You can find all my Everypoint shots here, and the app is here.

General Tips

Here are some general tips for lidar scanning on iPhone:

  • Remember that you can scan. People often get frustrated when scanning on the iPhone, usually scanning things that don't stand a good chance on their own. The most important thing to remember is that the scanner does not work with small things and objects. For example, a regular boot is often too small. Also, iPhone lidar does not work well with shiny/reflective elements
  • Avoid rescanning an area already covered, this will most likely create misalignment issues and create artifacts in your image
  • Scanning around something small/thin - like a statue, chair, or wall - generally doesn't work well
  • Make sure that every part of the scanned area is well scanned to avoid gaps and voids. To do this, I usually use something like a spray gesture, a bit like if I were painting with spray paint
  • Walk slowly and carefully. Don't flinch
  • A beautiful and neat 3D image significantly affects the overall perception. 3Dscannerapp, Polycam and Scaniverse offer cropping directly in the app
  • Sketchfab offers many options to help turn a bad scan into a normal one. I like to add shadows (2nd editor tab) and then post-process effects like sharpening, depth of field, saturation
  • Adding 3D annotations to Sketchfab is a great way to turn a scan into a mini story

Sell 3D photos

Sketchfab shop allows you to monetize your 3D creations. It seems to me that most of my iPhone lidar shots are still a little behind in quality in order to put them in the store. That being said, I put 2 of them up for sale (mini and doctor's office) because users actually asked me how they could buy them. The bottom line is that you never know how someone might use your scans, and it's often more about setting an appropriate price based on the quality and limitations of the content. Don't forget that the quality (and my skills) continues to improve, so I expect to be able to offer more 3D images for sale in the future.
