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.

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

Usage information
Ensure the app is up to date. Upload the images to Pix4Dcloud to generate, visualize, measure and share your 3D model.

What’s New

Version 1.2.2

What’s New:
• The capture experience has been improved by replacing the default purple 3D mesh with a wireframe to give unobstructed views to the real world. The settings need to be reset to default to incorporate this change
• Volume measurements and Digital Surface Model (DSM) enabled in Pix4Dcloud when processing with depth
• The geolocation accuracy of the 3D scan is shown within the project's details

Bug fixes:
• Fixes export to Files app and external hard drives
• Minor improvements to the user interface

Requires paid subscription

Not upfront about requiring paid subscription until you go to process.

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

I can’t log into my pix account inside the app

It won’t pull up the keyboard to type my email and password... got a fix??

Developer Response ,

Hello, sorry to hear that, it should be handled by iOS. The keyboard should appear if you tap on the text fields. Couple of things to try, try restarting the browser on the device, failing that, maybe restarting the device?
