Requires an iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max or 2020 iPad Pro. Capture your world in 3D with Polycam! Polycam uses the LiDAR sensor on new Apple devices to enable you to quickly create color 3D scans of objects and spaces. Polycam's colorization engine is optimized to generate the highest quality color 3D scans in the least amount of time. Single room captures take only seconds to process, and all computation happens securely on your device -- no internet connection is required. There is no limit to the number of scans you can make or process.

Polycam 3D captures are also dimensionally accurate, enabling you to easily measure the distance between any two points. Measurements are generally accurate down to about one inch, or a couple centimeters.

View examples of Polycam captures on the web here:

Pro users can export their scans in a variety of popular 3D mesh formats such as OBJ, USDZ, GLTF and STL, as well as a number of popular 3D point cloud formats such as PLY, XYZ and PTS, to enable easy importing into your favorite 3D model viewer or editor.

We are excited to see what you create with Polycam! If you share something online, tag us on twitter @PolycamAI to let us know what you’ve captured!

Please note: Polycam requires a device with a LiDAR sensor to work, and is not able to function otherwise. Currently, we are unable to restrict access on the App Store to only devices with a lidar sensor, so it is possible you may be able to download this app even if it does not function on your device. If this is the case, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and hope you will consider re-downloading Polycam in the future if you happen to purchase a new device with LiDAR.

Polycam was built by John Stalbaum, Elliott Spelman and Chris Heinrich.

Fast and high quality texturing. Great for photogrammetry

I am a photogrammetry enthusiast who purchased the LiDAR iPad Pro as soon as it was available. I was initially disappointed with the iPad’s ability to do 3D scanning until I discovered Polycam. Polycam generates the best quality captures of any 3D scanning app out there, and texturing is lightning fast — only takes about 10 seconds to texture my living room. I have been using Polycam on a daily basis and found it to be a nice tool in my photogrammetry tool belt. The spatial resolution is not as good as what you get using images and something like Reality Capture, but the speed and convenience make it a fantastic tool nonetheless. The new crop tool is very nice though, and if you’ve used other 3d editing programs you know how much easier this is to use!

The fastest textured LiDAR app around

Since the release of the Ipad Pro with Lidar, I've had the opportunity to test a significant amount of apps that support the new lidar hardware. When I came across Poly Cam not too long ago, I was immediately impressed by the results. The speed and quality of the captures are some of the best I've seen. Really impressed by the texture mapping, the blending of the seams are really well done, including the UV layout. The model formats currently supported will get you into any DCC application out there for further editing. Overall I love the ease of use and speed of this app and looking forward to new features and improvements from the Poly Cam team. I highly recommend giving this application a go for your capture needs.

Great OBJ, GLTF export functionality

I work in 3D modeling, and sometimes use 3D scans as a rough starting point for my models. Not only is this a great scanner app, it also allows you to export your 3D models in almost any format you would care to use, which saves me time so I don’t have to convert the 3D model format before importing into my editor. The new crop functionality is also very nice and saves me time so I don’t have to crop in blender!
