Canvas Lite for Homeowners is the only 3D scanning app designed for homeowners working remotely with home improvement professionals. Simply scan a room, upload your scan, and a complete set of 3D measurements will be sent to your professional, in the format they use every day. You will need a code from your professional to ensure your scan is sent to them.
If you are a professional looking to use Canvas and have a LiDAR-enabled iPad or iPhone, we strongly recommend using our other app for professionals, Canvas: LiDAR 3D Measurements. If you don't have a LiDAR-enabled iPad or iPhone, you may also use this app to test out the experience, but LiDAR will make scanning 5x more accurate.
Canvas Lite for Homeowners requires an iPhone 8 or above and delivers the best scan quality and accuracy with the LiDAR-enabled iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max or iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max.
We no longer place a hold on your credit card when you order. We still calculate the final cost based on actual square footage and still charge you only at delivery. We've also fixed some bugs and improved performance.
Ratings and Reviews
Lack of Support
Looks very good and pleased with an initial scan. However, the app now appears to be stuck in a loop trying to "upload" the scan despite our having already been uploaded and converted with the proprietary system. Trying to now do a CAD export but can't because of the hang up. There is no means within the app that I can find to get help with this, which is frustrating. I also had issues with the initial account setup. Seems like the tech is pretty good, but there is a distinct lack of support from the dev.

Thank you for taking the time to review our app. We're sorry to hear you're having issues - please email our Customer Success team at email@example.com and we'll get everything sorted out. We're also working on making support more accessible in app, which you'll see in an update soon!
Literally any room scanning app can do what this one does. Most of the time better. The usage of LiDAR is a gimmick. You only get more resolution in a scan using it which allows for subjectively more accuracy. That doesn’t mean anything when room scanning other than a boost in processing speed. That boost is ignored by this company forcing users to upload their scans for processing. Don’t buy into this greedy company. There are plenty of alternatives that offer the exact same functionality. Most don’t even need the LiDAR Scanner but simply benefit from having it. They also don’t require you to upload a customers private information to this company’s servers to “process”. The amount of information that can be harvested from scans like these is sickening. GPS data, network information, any photos or family pictures hanging on the wall, a full blueprint of a space along with the location of all the valuables. You are forced to upload all of it and give it over to be stored and processed remotely for anything usable. I’m guessing the steel sack it takes to then charge folks $0.15/ sq ft for these scans is so that the information can be adequately safeguarded and encrypted but I highly doubt that the case. Even if the info is properly handled, what stops this company from just selling that info to advertisers for a nice amount? Don’t be fooled by a gimmick.

Thank you for taking the time to review our app, even if you didn't have a good experience. It sounds like you may be looking for a general 3D room scanning app, and you're right that there are many apps that can generate a 3D scan, especially with LiDAR. What Canvas specializes in is making that 3D scan data useful for professionals in the home improvement industries - people who need to capture field conditions and measurements and use that data in CAD or BIM programs. We charge $0.15 per sqft for that conversion to various CAD and BIM formats, but make the ability to scan (as well as export) free. We'd also like to add that we in no way sell uploaded data to advertisers, and because we charge for Scan To CAD processing, we really have no incentive to do so. We would welcome an opportunity to discuss further - please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and reference your App Store review.
The folks at Canvas were more amazing of a resource than I would have thought possible. Knowledge, integrity and respect were my main takeaways of our interactions and that's considering the fact that I was trying to utilize their app in a somewhat experimental manner. After our numerous conversations over email and video I was left requesting that they keep my contacts on file should the needs I have ever align with their business plans. I'm left satisfied with their product, help & goals and look forward to the next opportunity we have to work together. Such a great product and team.
