LiDAR is perfect for scanning homes & creating floor plans, so the new RoomScan LiDAR has a user experience created from scratch just for the iPhone 12 Pro & new iPad Pro. Our unique ten years' experience using iPhone & iPad sensors to automatically create floor plans with RoomScan Pro has all been distilled into RoomScan LiDAR.
RoomScan LiDAR combines machine learning with LiDAR scanning to automatically recognise, measure and place doors, windows and symbols on your floor plan simply and accurately.
• Quick, accurate floor plans in any building, furnished or unfurnished. RoomScan LiDAR even scans curved walls.
• 2D->3D wizard turns any floor plan into a multi-storey 3D model. Scan your existing home, draw your extension, place furniture and immediately see it in 3D. Check the views from the windows in AR, send to friends as iMessage Model and export to SketchUp for your architect.
• Automatically connects 3D scans for realistic and accurate whole-floor models: choose from Clean 3D, Textured 3D Mesh and 3D Point Cloud.
• Huge range of export options including PNG, PDF, DXF (for CAD), DAE (for SketchUp), PLY, XYZ, Metropix and many more.
• Automatically measures ceiling height and calculates wall areas, great for contractors.
• Take photos and type or dictate notes onto them, and see them automatically positioned on the plan. Perfect for surveys, inventories, etc.
• Annotate your plans with Apple Pencil.
• Connects to Bluetooth Laser Measures (see FAQ for compatible devices).

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, does have crash issues though
First off this app does an amazing job of building floor plans. Super intuitive and the 10 step guide was really helpful. The biggest issues I ran into were the crashes that occurred while trying to complete a scan and losing everything. The crashes seem related to running out of memory, so I recommend force closing all apps and restarting the phone as that worked for me. It would be nice if this tip was included in the app, but even better if the app could save a partial scan so that I don’t have to start from scratch after a crash. For example all of my crashes occurred after completing the wall scan and adding doors, openings and windows. If the initial scan was saved it would have been much easier to recover.

Hi TheSher, thanks for the really helpful review which we just received today. I wonder if you might have 3D Quality set to high in RoomScan settings? That can sometimes cause behaviour like you describe on the 12 Pro. If you’re still having trouble please tap (?) -> Get Assistance within the app and we’ll get it sorted.
Most accurate LIDAR floor plan generator
I’ve tried a half dozen room scanners with my iPhone 12 Pro, I have to admit that this one is the most accurate. Where other apps have you mark off exact floor corners, which may be blocked off or under counters, this one relies on only marking off the walls.
This input generates perfect accurate angles, distances, and proportions. Shelves, kitchen and bathroom counters, cabinets, nothing stands in this thing’s way.
The only thing is, many features are locked behind a monthly paywall. It gives you about 3 seconds of walk around in the 3d scan before yoinking you back and demanding $4 a month.
Maybe it’s worth the price, I don’t know, I don’t absolutely need it because I’m just doing basic measurement. If you’re a professional, you probably have something much much better. Who is this marketed for? Again, not my problem. One star off for ridiculous pricing model.
I know devs regularly respond to reviews, my suggestion is finding a better way to build a dedicated, enthusiastic user base and to let them help make the app a success.

Hi Ebrainer, thanks for your thoughtful review, much appreciated. We do aim to be the best choice for professionals, and if there is anything out there that delivers floor plans as fast and as accurately, we aren’t aware of it. Customers who only need it once get it free for seven days and occasional users get a month’s use whenever they need it for just a few dollars. Our previous app, RoomScan Pro, has a pricing model something like what you propose and has millions of happy users. But apps like this need constant updates for new iOS and new devices and that is very expensive. You might understandably imagine that having millions of users must create enough income to cover costs one way or another, but it doesn’t.
Love this app!
I do Remodeling here in Houston TX and for the recent freeze this app really came in handy when doing sketches for insurance work. I love the constant updates and the great price it’s at right now for extra features. I would like for the Bluetooth laser feature to be shown in a “Tips” video. Not sure if my laser is not compatible but it’s never worked for me. Overall a great and accurate app even without a Bluetooth laser. Another feature I would like to see added is a statistics tab where I can see Floor perimeter, ceiling perimeter, walls squared feet, ceiling squared feet, or walls and ceiling squared feet. Devs keep doing your thing because this app is awesome!
