Canvas 2.5 introduces new pricing based on square footage!

The Canvas app requires a 2020 iPad Pro (with LiDAR), or a compatible iPad with Occipital's Structure Sensor 3D sensor accessory.

Meet Canvas, the fastest, easiest way to create a scale-accurate 3D model of a home — all from your iPad. We help you "skip ahead to the fun part" on every home improvement project.

Instead of capturing one measurement at a time, Canvas captures thousands per second, and then combines them into a single 3D representation of the space. You can view your 3D model from any angle, measure between any two points, and revisit it any time.

Our Scan To CAD service takes your 3D model one step further: for a small fee per model, you can convert your scans into editable, layered, professional-grade CAD files and jump right into design, quoting, or other planning in a variety of industry-standard programs. All your measurements will be built right into the model, including the ones you never thought you'd need. We recommend scanning on a room by room basis, but you can merge your scans into a single model of the entire property.

Scan To CAD can output SketchUp, Revit, Chief Architect, 2020 Design Live 3D CAD files as well as 2D floor plans in PDF and AutoCAD formats. From there, you can make structural changes, change materials and decoration, and even create high-quality 3D renders. If you just want to use the scan from Canvas, you can export it easily as a .OBJ file.

Canvas is trusted by thousands of home improvement professionals: design-build firms, kitchen and bath remodelers, general contractors, architects, interior designers, and more. Here's what they say:

"Canvas allows us to bring the job site back to the office." - Kyle Meyer, Black Timber Builders

"I was able to use the 3D model from Canvas to raise a possible installation issue to my contractor, avoiding at least 2 months of delay." - Mike Balzer, Homeowner and DIYer

"It allows me to take on more clients than I would otherwise be able to." - Noz Nozawa, Noz Design

"I don't know what you all did differently with this application, but it FAR exceeds anything I've ever seen before. You've taken computer vision to a whole new level, and completely blown my expectations out of the water." - Mike McLaughlin, 3D Scanning Enthusiast

"Given that just about every other project starts with as-built modeling, it's easy to see how Canvas can be a game changer." - Mark Harrison, SketchUp

What’s New

Version 2.5.9

Canvas 2.5.9 fixes a bug with long camera initialization on LiDAR-enabled iPad Pro.

Canvas 2.5 introduces new pricing based on square footage!

Original per-room pricing was introduced back in 2016 when Canvas worked exclusively with Structure Sensor, which was able to scan only a single room at a time. With Canvas + LiDAR you can now capture an entire house in a single scan. Ordering a multi-room scan required us to count rooms and ask users to pay for the extra rooms after the order, which caused frustration and delays.

The new sqft-based pricing solves this inconvenience. It also allows you to estimate the Scan To CAD price easily before scanning since square footage is often approximately known, but it's harder to estimate the number of rooms in the space or the number of scans required to capture the space.

Finally, the new pricing is the same for any 3D CAD output format whether it's SketchUp, Revit, Chief Architect, or 2020 Design Live. And with the new lower minimums it has become even more attractive for scanning smaller spaces like bathrooms.

Still struggling with the scan quality

After half a year of trying I still often encounter bent walls and other misalignment issues.

I think in theory this is a really great app - but I personally fail at making scans that are usable to get precise measurements from.

For a quick scan and visualization this app is fine.

This app really saves my time and money!

I've used the Canvas app for a while. There were some troubles and annoying bugs. But this version fixed everything I wanted to be fixed. It brings me the ability to scan on my new iPad Pro with LiDAR without any extra hardware!!! This app saves my time and money - I can use it to scan the rooms in my home renovation business. Recommend to try it, even if you are not business oriented customer!

Fantastic Technology and Amazing Customer Support

We have been using Canvas and the Structures Scanner for almost a year now. As a professional designer for a construction company this technology revolutionized our site visits. Our ability to gather data on existing sites across the country with accuracy and consistency is vital to producing client reports, as-built drawings, renovations, and additions.

With the addition of Revit support we now have 3D models complete in days rather than weeks!

We have worked closely with the Canvas Team and are very pleased with their customer support. They feel more like a partner in out projects than a vendor.

From the professional to the home owner, this technology is only limited by the hands that use it.
