Turn photos from your iPhone or iPad into high‑quality 3D models that are optimized for AR using the new Object Capture API on macOS Monterey.
Object Capture uses photogrammetry to turn a series of pictures taken on your iPhone or iPad into USDZ files that can be viewed in AR Quick Look, seamlessly integrated into your Xcode project, or used in professional 3D content workflows.
Scan with Qlone on your iPhone and Process on your Mac! Our familiarly beautiful AR dome will guide you through the scanning process.
Alternatively, you can also process a set of your own images in a Folder or ZIP file.

Phenomenal Scanner (if you have all the pieces)
I was a bit skeptical about this app but I decided to try it anyways in hopes it would at least kinda work. I used the 3d mat (printed on thick sketch paper), a microwave plate, and a tripod with a ring light. It took me about 15 mins and when I was completely finished I had a really solid 3d model. I definitely think that if you have a microwave plate, some tape, and a tripod even the free version will be great for your models. The only reason I’d give this a 4 star is because I had to watch a video on a guy doing something similar to what I explained above to get good results. If the app said that you needed a few misc pieces to get the best possible quality it’d be 5 stars no doubt. I hope to continue to keep making models with this app and I’m very glad I got the premium version to edit my models :).
I will start off by saying that this app in concept is cool and, on the off chance the scan doesn’t look like something that came out of the backend of a farm animal, it can be a lot of fun.
However, that’s a gigantic if. Even following Qlone’s guidance, the models almost never look like anything but a nightmare version of what you’ve scanned. The biggest issue is that it makes EVERYTHING cone-shaped. Every. Single. Thing. Looking at videos and other reviews online, it’s clear this specifically has been an issue with this app from the beginning, and the developer has either not found a way to solve it or hasn’t bothered to even try.
And yet they continue to falsely advertise the features of their app to bilk people out of its massive cost—a price that would be an absolute steal if the app did what it promises. I would give this 100 stars if the developer wasn’t essentially stealing from their early adopters, because the concept is awesome and I can’t wait until it actually works correctly.
Aside from the scan issues, the editing feature is a mess and impossible to use on a touchscreen. It might as well not even be there. Again, over-promising and extreme under-delivering.
One star because the idea is cool, and one star because animating the models can be funny. Be honest about what you’re selling, guys, and you won’t get such nasty reviews. As it stands, you deserve every single one and more.
Developer Response ,
We are sorry for your troubles and we are here to help! There are two solutions for the cone effect you mention - Using the vertical back mat or merging two scans. To see the quality that you can achieve with Qlone, just take a look at our gallery on Sketchfab:
As with any new technology, there is a learning curve to get to good quality results but here are a few important tips for getting there:

I wanted to give a better review after learning how to use the app. First the map and paid version is key. Get the map made as big as you can for bigger objects that aren’t toys next lightning is so key any areas not lit well show up as missing or folded data. Even with this the scan will not be perfect. You will need to take it into the editing software and fix the structure. Once that’s done go back to the texture in editing an color in any gaps. This will let you fix any coloring in another program. I’m speaking from a graphic design aspect not a printing model. Learning how to make the adjustments in the sculptor editing was the key. I wish I had time to show. But it gets a 4 because the developers need more videos on how to use it and people would be happier.
