Pix4Dcatch is the tool for acquiring optimal ground images for photogrammetry. These ground images can be used to get highly accurate 3D models on Pix4Dcloud or offline within Pix4Dmapper (free 15 day trial available, then a valid subscription is required).
No need to be an expert. Walk around your area of interest and the app will record pictures along the way, together with GPS positions. Using augmented reality, get live feedback on the covered area and the completeness of the scan thanks to the overlaid 3D mesh on the current video frame that is available for devices with LiDAR sensors.
Images can be uploaded to Pix4Dcloud for the fast generation of scaled and georeferenced 3D models and point clouds that you can visualize, measure, share, and export. Or they can be exported locally for processing in Pix4Dmapper.

1 - Scan: Walk around the area of interest. Pix4Dcatch automatically records geotagged frames and displays on your screen real-time 3D meshing for scene completion feedback.
2a - Upload: Stop recording and automatically upload images to Pix4Dcloud to generate accurate and easy to share 3D models (requires a Pix4Dcloud subscription - free 15 day trial available).
2b - Or export: transfer the images from your device to your desktop computer and start the photogrammetry process, add GCPs and validate the accuracy of your 3D scene (requires a Pix4Dmapper subscription - free 15 day trial available).
3 - Examine: Measure distances, areas, and volumes, and perform virtual inspections.
4 - Share: Selectively and securely share project data and insights with your team, clients, and suppliers.

Started out well

App worked great for the first and second use, then stopped uploading, either to pix4d cloud or any other location. All photos are stored in the app, not in your camera, so if the app is not uploading, it’s nearly impossible to get to your photos. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Lots more development needs to happen here.

Developer Response ,

Hi, the upload issue should be fixed in the latest version, 1.0.3

Paid sub now required!?

I downloaded this as soon as it came out, and played around with it without a subscription. Now I need to pay at least $160 a month to use the photos I’ve already taken?

Pix4D’s photogrammetry engine is already garbage compared to actual reality capture software, so why did they think they could magically simplify a complex science? Waving your phone around and taking a zillion terrible pictures isn’t going to generate anything useable.

Buy literally anything else.

Low resolution 3D models! DroneDeploy is so much better. The app is hard to use and I wouldn’t recommend this at its current state to anyone.

Developer Response ,

Hi DronesAreTheFuture.
Thank you for your honest feedback, we really appreciate it. Could you please let us know which phone you used? With Pix4Dcatch, it is possible to obtain high-resolution 3D models without any expertise (check out some models captured with Pix4Dcatch and uploaded to Pix4Dcloud:,

I invite you to our community forum to give your feedback or feature requests and we'd be happy to collaborate.

Thanks and kind regards,
The Pix4Dcatch team.
