Want to capture the world in more than just 2 dimensions? Try 3D scanning anything or anyone with Capture, the fastest and most accurate iPhone scanning app available!
Use Capture to take 3D scans, share them with friends, or save and download them in any file format. ALL FOR FREE.
Note: Capture requires the TrueDepth camera, only available on the iPhone X, Xs, Xr, or Xs Max.
-- Take a scan of a static object just like you take a panorama photo.
-- Preview your scan in our model environment or place it in Augmented Reality
-- Send your scan to a friend via iMessage, Slack, WhatsApp, and more. All iPhones will be able to view the scan and place it in Augmented Reality, even if the model does not have a TrueDepth camera
-- If you've signed up for an account, you can also make the scans viewable in our web viewer (platform.standardcyborg.com) and share the url with your friends
-- Sign up for a free account within the app to save and view your scans to platform.standardcyborg.com. From there, you can download the files in OBJ or PLY format.
Learn more about our developer SDK, where you can add scanning & analysis tools to your app in just a few lines of code by filling out the “learn more” form in the app.
We've improved the color sharpness and dimensional accuracy of scanned objects, as well as small improvements to stability and speed.
Ratings and Reviews
Not the light, not the speed , video misleading
So I’ve tried about two dozen scans. Set it up on a small circular table to keep the camera at the same distance from the object. Brought in a few additional lights as well. Ran the camera around the edge of the table, going so slow as to not have it “whoops” on me. (The video by the way makes it appear you scanned the entire tractor in about 6 seconds.) After 93 seconds - yes I had a timer going- I made it all the way around the table. Started to try and get the top of the object and a whoops pops up.
A RESUME would make some sense here.
However, there still multiple spots where the item is blank and seems to have missed a large majority of the object.
A miniature bowling pin, very mundane object wouldn’t scan at all. Timed out every time at 3 seconds. A bobble head would scan about 3/4 and then my bobble head would have 2 heads.
There is no “high definition” option in the settings like one commenter posted.
I even put the phone in my kids toy car and drove it around the object, smooth and slow, but yet only made it around the object one out of 8 tries. And I’m talking REAL slow and smooth.
I’m not even trying to get great details, I’m just hoping to get the majority of the shape so I can export it out, and touch it up instead of having to recreate the object from scratch. I would hope to revisit this app in the future, but as of right now, it’s got too many issues.
Use the High Resolution option in settings
This app is what I’ve been waiting for ever since the iPhone X launched with FaceID! Make sure to enable “High resolution scanning” in settings, as it bumps up the quality noticeably. To use the point cloud data you can download the .stl or .obj file from their website and convert it to a mesh using tools like Meshlab or Blender. There are still kinks to be worked out but it sounds as if the developers will be plenty capable of sorting them out given enough time. In the meantime, this app works better than any other mobile 3D scanner I’ve tried, and outperforms paid programs such as Autodesk Recap Photo in certain situations.
Disregard the 2 star reviews
Everyone here who left a two star review is complaining about only being able to use the front camera, which says a lot about those people. I guess they should be complaining to Apple for putting face id on the front camera?
Whatever, works well, make sure you have a good lighting setup, and go slow. My only complaint is I can't seem to download an .STL or .obj version of my scan from the website; the only option I get is .ply. Is the scan still processing, do I need to wait longer?
