Metascan is a powerful all-in-one 3D capture tool. Create photorealistic 3D models of objects from photos, or walk around and quickly capture spaces using LiDAR.*

Edit your scans, then share them to the web, via Messages, or in VR. Take scale-accurate measurements with the measure tool, or customize and export a video of your scan.

Metascan Pro (available via in-app purchase) adds mesh and point cloud export for popular 3D file formats, gives you 100 Photo Mode captures per month, and unlocks the highest detail LiDAR reconstructions.

Best Lidar scanning app I’ve found — “just works”

This app produces the best scans I’ve seen on iOS. It allows free roaming scanning and is capable of capturing very large spaces (had no trouble with a ~1200 square foot space I tried). Now that the app uses Lidar, the accuracy of the meshes is vastly improved, without the warping that would sometimes occur in the earlier RGB-only versions. Interior walls are perfectly straight and meet at the correct angles (e.g., 90 degrees). Texture quality is great and the USDZs look really great when viewed on a desktop computer. Definitely give this a try especially if you need something that “just works” for serious purposes.

Best value and quality

Having tried almost all of the LiDAR scanning apps, this one is the best so far. The price is reasonable for hobbyist use, it exports models directly, and is very user friendly. Additionally, the free trial is useful as it allows you to try all of the features before you drop the cash on it.
Huge fan of this app!!

Thank you for your review. We do put a lot of effort into trying to make working in 3D both user friendly and intuitive.

Won't Rotate, Crashes on large scans

Incredibly, this app only functions in portrait, making it infuriating to use with an iPad that has been attached to a keyboard.

I've got the 8GB of RAM M1 iPad and it couldn't handle scanning an entire house without crashing and losing the entire scan. Also produced a bunch of floating glitches from one part of the house to another. Doesn't seem to be able to capture fine enough resolution to not put holes in a 2x4 wall with drywall because it thinks it's too thin.

Please update to version 2.0 for landscape support and more robust scanning of large spaces.
