Create 3D Models with Mobile Devices




Structure Sensor is the World's first ever 3D sensor for mobile devices! The small sensor clips to your iPad using a bracket and connects using cable. I was lucky enough to get one very early on and it has only got better since then. Check out some magnificent apps below that work with Structure Sensor. 

itSeez3D is a mobile 3D scanner that allows your iPad, with the Occipital’s Structure Sensor, to capture color and structure information of the world and process them into realistic 3D models. Use it to scan your family and friends as well as things you would like to copy in 3D, e.g., toys, shoes etc. Share your 3D models on sketchfab.com from the app and become a part of the growing 3D community! Other features include:
• Capture high-resolution color and structure data
• Augmented reality feedback is used to improve your scanning experience
• Send captured data to the cloud and get a great 3D model back in a few minutes
• Share the 3D model by email in .ply or .obj formats or on sketchfab.com

Scanner allows you to Capture objects in 3D with your Structure Sensor. This simple and easy to use application allows you to capture 3D models of objects and people by simply walking around them with your iPad and the Structure Sensor accessory. Captured objects can be sent via email (uses OBJ format). Download the new "Structure Sensor Calibrator" app for best color results.




Room Capture allows you to capture a room in 3D with your Structure Sensor. Capturing a 3D model of an entire room is now delightfully easy. Simply tap 'Start', and slowly pan around your room, and a model is built in realtime as you watch. When you've finished, the model can be explored with natural touch gestures. Models are scale-accurate. You can use a measuring tool to measure distance between any two points.

Turn ordinary photos into extraordinary 3D models. Capture places, people and things in 3D using your iPad, iPhone, Android device, or any camera. Share your catches, or 3D print a real object!



Tinkerplay (Formerly Modio)
Modio has been acquired by Autodesk and renamed as Tinkerplay. According to the Modio website, this is the reason for the new name:
"You may be wondering why the name change? Well, Tinkercad is an incredible web app from Autodesk that allows you to create custom 3D parts and we will be working on making Tinkercad and Tinkerplay work closely together in the future. As a first step, we’ve added a number of Tinkerplay parts and connectors to Tinkercad so you can start to experiment with making your own parts. "
Tinkerplay gives you the ability to unleash your creativity and design 3D characters. Tinkerplay has a large built in library of shapes, textures,  and colors to design and personalize your character. Also included are character templates that walk you through you how to create. Full multi-touch support allows you to design and build with friends. You can modify and move each part and your finished creation can be exported to work with any desktop 3D printer. 

Morphi is a new 3D modeling and printing app for all! In Morphi, anyone can create printable 3D models (STL files) on the go using touch, without wifi or a mouse. Try the app for free and buy additional tools and features in our In-App Store.
