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!
No instructions, didn’t work at first
After completing a scan it just showed a button that said “process capture” on a white background. The button didn’t work, and nothing happened for over 5 minutes. Leaving the app and coming back showed a gallery that had my scan in it and clicking the process capture button this time worked. Quality is okay. It’s hard to tell what did or didn’t capture in the scanning process, and the viewer doesn’t seem to offer a way to change the height of the camera. Panning is also a bit finicky, more often zooming or staying put than panning as expected. But for a free app, it’s a fun demo of LIDAR.
Very impressive but needs some bugs fixed
I downloaded after reading about it in an article and after trying to process in HD format it unexpectedly quit. I’ve got plenty of space so I it’s not a storage issue. After the third crash I was able process it in SD format and it’s very impressive, but until I can save in HD I’ll wait until the developer gets the bugs out. I still chose to give four stars because this is a phenomenal app and I am confident it will be addressed. Happy to Test Flight it and see if I can recreate the unexpected quitting.
Crashes when trying to process scans.
The interface is pretty good but it can have some difficulty with more complex geometry. It often has troubles resolving the shape of objects scanned from multiple angles (arms disappear off humans when doing a 360 scan for instance). Also the textures picked for geometry can sometimes be images captured at an off-normal angle to the face so it sometimes ends up with strange perspective baked into the textures. I had experienced some of the crashing issues from previous versions, but the latest version addresses that and is much faster at processing!
Thank you for pushing the quality in updates so often
I’ve spent a lot of time testing nearly every lidar scanner. This one so far seems to have the best texture capture and spatial understanding and that rescan feature on prior captures is awesome. I do kind of wish it would fix more obvious errors but I’m sure it will only get better
Really excited about this technology! My first attempts to scan were very positive. The one gripe I have to mention is that it doesn't seem to scan hollow objects very well, but I've only tried one thing and it's probably not the best thing to scan (a glossy ceramic cup my son made)
Amazing app that showcases the use of LiDAR
This app in tandem with the iPhone 12 Pro has pretty much replaced using a Kinect tethered to a wall and PC. Really nice having the ability to do photogrammetry on the go with detailed results. Unfortunately had to knock a star off for HQ processing consistently crashing the device, most likely due to resources but hard to tell. Most scans at 50k verts caused a crash.
Great for scanning environments and large scenes
Super useful tool for scanning environments and larger scenes. The color quality is the highest I’ve seen in any of these LiDAR scanning apps, and the runtime for texturing is also quite fast. Overall seems like a very useful tool that I’ll be using regularly for my job.
actual real-time photogrammetry!
Feels like the future - you can generate the mesh in real-time and then texture it when you’re done. Took between 5 and 15 seconds for the captures I made. Keeps coming out with new features too - awesome job developers!
It doesn't even have to be used specifically for construction work or its commercial education use. Im more than confident it could be used for other applications and intend to test it. So far it has delivered exactly what was advertised
Lots of recent improvements
Scan quality has consistently gotten better and faster over the past few weeks. Really having a good time scanning.
Takes a few attempts to get it right but when you do the end result is amazing. When you scan the object it is better to over do it to make sure you get all the angles covered. Polycam iis best app for scanning objects in 3D. "
Really easy to use
Easy to use and follow but i wish there was an easier way to get full body scans without the help of another person. Other than that its great!
In app purchase to export!
Developers should be required by law to expose in the description exactly what the in app purchase consists of! This is endlessly frustrating for customers download an app, begin using it, and then find they can’t do anything with it without making a purchase. There is a law against this… It is called bait and switch! Do the right thing.

Hi, I purchased the app today but it keeps crashing during the processing when I try to extend.
I use an iPhone 12 Pro device.
