Ratings and Reviews
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! 😊
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.

The Best LiDAR Apps for Your iPhone and iPad
The Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanner in the iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the 2020 iPad Pro measures distances more accurately to map out three-dimensional spaces. That skill comes in handy when shooting photos at night, but it also plays a role in an array of mobile apps. With the LiDAR scanner, you can better measure yourself for clothes shopping, your home for buying new furniture, and your surroundings for imaging scanning.
Companies like Apple, Ikea, and Microsoft have apps that can measure a person’s height, position virtual 3D furniture, and identify nearby people and objects. Many other third-party apps exist in the App Store, but there are several that stand out.
Apple’s free Measure(Opens in a new window) app is included on the iPhone and iPad as a virtual alternative to a physical ruler, tape measure, and level. You can measure the distance between two points, determine the dimensions of an object, and even figure out if a surface is straight.
Measure distance by positioning the center dot within the circle onto the starting point, then tap the + button. Move your device along the area you want to measure, then tap the + button again at the ending point. The total distance appears on the screen.
If you’re looking for the dimensions of a shape, such as a square or cube, record the length of one side, then double-tap the + button. Move your device along each side and double tap the + button to start the next line. Continue in this fashion until all sides are measured, then tap the + button to finish.
You can tap the bullet-point icon in the top-left corner to display the dimensions you measured on the screen. Tap the Shutter button to take a picture of the object with the dimensions visible.
To use the Measure app as a level, tap the Level icon at the bottom of the screen. You can then position your device flat, horizontally, or vertically along a surface until the screen displays 0 and turns green to indicate that you are level.
You can easily remodel and equip your home with the right furniture via the free Ikea Place app(Opens in a new window). Choose from a variety of items, including chairs, sofas, tables, desks, bookcases, and lamps. You can browse by collection, category, or theme. Just position the object into an area in your home to see how it would fit. After you’ve inserted a virtual item, you can reposition it and move it around the room. You can also add more items and save each one to redecorate whole rooms or your entire house.
Designed by Microsoft, the free Seeing AI(Opens in a new window) app is geared toward helping blind and visually impaired people navigate through their environment. However, the new LiDAR-based features make the app a fascinating experience for anyone.
Thanks to the power of artificial intelligence, the app can describe people, scenes, and objects that appear in the viewfinder. It can also view text on the fly and read it aloud, identify products from the barcode, and identify colors and currency.
With its LiDAR support, Seeing AI can help you feel the distance to objects based on your device’s haptic proximity sensor. And if you’re wearing headphones, the app can describe nearby objects. To use Seeing AI, just choose the option you need, point your iPhone or iPad at the right object, and the app will do the rest.
Looking for an app to scan, capture, and display an entire room? Canvas: LiDAR 3D Measurements(Opens in a new window) can handle the job. Pick the room you want to scan, then move your device around the room to cover the virtual grid displayed on the screen.
Once you have captured the entire room, the app generates a 3D image that you can view and even walk through. Take a tour of the room using gestures or by moving your iPhone or iPad. You can look at a cutaway image of the room, which you can then tilt or swivel.
The basic app is free. If you want a professional CAD image of your room for design or architectural purposes, you’ll have to pony up to $15, $29, or $39 per scan based on the complexity you require.
3D Scanner App
With the free 3D Scanner app(Opens in a new window), you can scan any object or scene to create a three-dimensional image of it on your device. To start, position your iPhone or iPad in front of the object you want to capture and tap the Shutter button. Move your device around the object to generate an image, then tap the Shutter button again when you’re done to generate the 3D object.
By default, the scan is created in low resolution, but you can switch to high resolution to better control the quality of the image. Afterwards, you can tweak the scan to refine, smooth, or simplify details. You can also measure the distance between any two points in the scan and share it as different formats.

Turn your iPad into a 3D scanner with this accessory
La 3d technology is part of what the future of this sector will be and so many will be companies are involved in related projects. P is known to everyone for the project Tango, a tablet developed by the Google ATAP team that has 3D capabilities and can be applied to the world of video games. Among other things, this device is capable of scanning various types of objects, people, and even spaces such as rooms. AT accessory for iPad what we are dealing with in these lines is not so difficult, although it has some of these functions.
3D scanning along with 3D printing are considered useful tools to be used in the coming years, but there are already signs of their impact and their usefulness today. A few months ago, 3D Systems introduced a device at CES in Las Vegas in 2014 that allows you to scan 3D objects that can then be printed on one of the company's printers. A little later, last summer, they took another step forward by introducing iSense 3D Scanner for iPad , an accessory that allows these actions.
This company competes with 3D Primesense , the developer of 3D vision systems that was responsible for the production of Microsoft's first Kinect and which was later acquired by Apple in a million-dollar move from Cupertino. As we said, to find ourselves, we can come up with an accessory that gives the iPad similar (albeit much simpler) functionality to the Project Tango tablet by simply attaching it to the top of one side and connecting Lightning port.
- 1 Main functions
- 2 Specifications, requirements and price
Apple (Apple is still the world's largest tablet manufacturer) by integrating the necessary features to capture an image in three dimensions. people, household items, sculptures, etc. what we find on the street thanks to two cameras and a sensor unit that unites. In addition, thanks to its design that fits perfectly and measures less than 3 mm thick and 100 grams of , it is not too cumbersome to transport and use in various situations and applications.
As explained on their website, you can visit this link, the device is optimized to scan objects of a wide variety of sizes, ranging from a few centimeters to several meters. The specifications indicate this information, the ability to capture objects 20 centimeters to 3 meters (cubic), sufficient for example to scan an entire machine.
There are several additional features that will improve the user experience. The clearest example of this is the Automatic Object Recognition System , which will greatly aid in successful scanning. In the same way, iSense offers a simple and fast editing program for adapting 3D models to files that can be printed on a 3D printer. And this is one of their big bets, those who have a 3D printer of this brand ( 3D Cube ) will be able to easily move designs from digital to physical and from physical to digital, even when we are away from home with the help of a cloud printing system.
Specifications, requirements and price
As you can understand, not all iPads are compatible, in which case the iSense 3D Scanner can be used with iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4 and iPad Retina Provided they have at least would update iOS 7. Their change in vision is approximately 45 degrees vertically and 58 degrees horizontally. The device works at ranges from 40 centimeters to 3 and a half meters object, outside of these measures it may be ineffective. It has a built-in battery that provides autonomy from 3 to 4 hours of use and up to 1.000 hours of standby time.
As expected, its price is not available for all budgets. This fits 429 euro in any of its versions and this is another aspect to consider is that the accessory is only compatible with a model from the previous four models we review, it cannot (under optimal conditions) be used with Other tablets have a signature that does not fit.
