Canvas empowers home improvement pros to 3D scan spaces in minutes and get accurate as-built CAD models and floor plans. Save hours by replacing tedious measuring with 3D scanning, which is as easy as taking a video. Save even more time by using our Scan To CAD service, which transforms your scans into editable, professional-grade 3D CAD/BIM files and 2D drawings in as little as one day.

Canvas is trusted by thousands of home improvement professionals: design-build firms, kitchen and bath remodelers, general contractors, architects, interior designers, and more. Our Scan To CAD service creates 3D CAD/BIM as-builts in industry-standard formats like Revit, SketchUp, Chief Architect, and 2020 Design Live, as well as 2D floor plans in AutoCAD and PDF. Open the as-built in your program of choice and jump right into design, quoting, and planning.

Canvas requires a LiDAR-equipped iOS device: an iPhone 12 Pro / Pro Max or iPhone 13 Pro / Pro Max or an iPad Pro (2020-2021 models).

Download Canvas to turn your iPad or iPhone into a power tool. 3D capture is easy: simply walk around rooms as if you’re taking a video. Canvas uses computer vision and AI to create accurate 3D digital twins. Scan rooms in seconds and entire homes in minutes.

View your 3D model from any angle, measure with up to 99% accuracy, and revisit it any time — in-app or via the Canvas Web Viewer on any device.

Helpful if you hate measuring by hand

I need to measure homes for each remodeling project of my firm. And I hate it! The 3D model this app provides is decently accurate for most measurements we need, and it saves me a couple of hours per home. I still take critical measurements by myself. You can actually ask their support team to incorporate your measurements in the CAD file they deliver. The app gives you a Revit file. I spend a bit of time to adjust it to our template but it’s like 10x faster than modeling by yourself. Anyway, definitely worth trying.

Purchased LiDAR iPad just for Canvas. Worth it!

A must-have for any contractor! I wish I found this app before, it almost replaces hours of measuring on your knees and then even more hours of as-built 3d modeling. Scanning has a learning curve but is still pretty easy. Accuracy is sufficient for planning and quoting but you’ll definitely want to verify key measurements with a tape measure or a laser before ordering materials and installation. Chief Architect files are very detailed and delivered even faster than advertised – usually in 1-2 days.

Why aren’t you using Canvas already?

Bought my iPad specifically for Canvas and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as a business owner. The Canvas team helped me at no extra cost, to fix a rookie mistake I made, because it was my first scan. What other company will do that for you? From then on, I knew we were in good hands. The app works like it’s supposed to, easy to use, saves time and money….Just download it and start using it already, then thank me later.
