PIX4Dcatch lets you create 3D models and maps with your mobile device.
Just point and shoot to gather data, ready for accurate 3D model generation. Use it to recreate reality and measure the world around you.
You can pair it with the viDoc RTK rover to achieve centimeter-accuracy and better precision for your project and single-point measurements.
To generate georeferenced 3D models, the collected images can be uploaded to PIX4Dcloud or exported to PIX4Dmatic. Both offer a 15-day trial to get started. Projects can also be freely exported, processed, and visualized in third-party photogrammetry software.

1 - Scan: walk around your site. The app automatically gathers data and gives you live feedback with iOS LiDAR to make sure you capture every detail.
2 - Upload or export: upload your data to PIX4Dcloud, or export to desktop software PIx4Dmatic, and process the data. Get high-quality, accurate 2D and 3D outputs.
3 - Analyze and share: share your results, measure the space, and enjoy all the benefits of a detailed 3D model of your surroundings.
This workflow can be used for tracking stockpiles on construction sites, measuring volumes, or keeping permanent records of underground piping or work. Measure single points with confidence and enhance your accuracy with viDoc. Digitize reality with your mobile device.

Devices compatibility:
• Optimized for LiDAR equipped devices
• All ARKit enabled devices
• viDoc RTK

Usage information guidance:

Photogrammetry at your phingertips

Long time pix4d user for drone based 3D modeling. PIX4DCatch is the perfect ground based photo capture tool. Depth images from the iPhone 12 Pro make really crisp models. Always improving software makes capture and quality estimation in the field a breeze! Well done.

Developer Response ,

Hi mfmfmfm, Thank you for your kind review. User feedback is very important to us. Please continue to let us know how we can improve by using the Feature Request link in our Community forum.

Almost there…

Great multi function product but outputs contradict. When exporting a scan, photo geo tags are in gps (lat/lon). When exporting GCP’s, coordinates are in SPC (northing/easting). Works great when staying contained within PIX4D environment. However limits using in 3rd party software (ie Faro 3D or Leica Map 360).

Having the GCP’s export in GPS coordinates as well would be beneficial to be able to use the viDoc to pickup extra points on a scene and just add them to an existing project like a total station or gnss receiver.

* Using RTK and referring to csv outputs
