No need for an iPhone, works on Android too.

You can use Lidar(if you have it), still images, or video.

If you include a scale bar or something of a known length there is a Rescale function that gets you about as close as you would trust a phone-based to get you.

I highly recommend Dot3D for accurate, scalable, dense color point cloud scanning from iOS LiDAR devices.

Please see here for various sample data sets from Dot3D on iOS: ... 8cbb7e5dd0

You may download the full density point cloud data directly from the descriptions of each scan on Sketchfab.

Re: Apple lidar data-Android and polycam

Post by gsisman »

Has anyone tried polycam with lidar on an iPad pro?
I was using polycam for about 7 months on a home project and was pretty impressed with it especially for a special small circular photo shoots only mesh creations -had to be careful on like whole room sections.
Here was a scan I did of a 20 lb chunk of solid iron I found weighting down some wire mesh plaster patch in my attic ceiling.Probably from about 1930's ?
Still don't know exactly what it was cut from at first I thought it was an anvil but I think it might be some type of industrial rail from a factory? ... d715fba8c
