Used this for 3D printed objects.

I have found this easy to use and great results after my first attempt.
My first attempt being average because I didn’t read the suggested method and was impatient.
The more you feed the original scan the better the results.

Problem with the free trial?

I am trying to try out this app, scan an item and export it as a .STL for use in Solidworks. My first try, the STL format was an available option, however the scan itself wasn’t done well enough to be useable. But since then with other scan attempts, it won’t show STL format as an option when exporting - only video and raw for some reason?

This app is WAY too expensive, at $40 NZD for me to pay and continue to figure it out!

Paid app is far better than the free version

The free app gives good results but the limit of scans is too limited to learn how to use it and achieve good scans

A short period subscription would be preferable to a one year subscription since it costs a lot
