iPhone 3D Scanner: Trimensional >

Available now on the App Store: Trimensional

The world’s first 3D scanner for iPhone is here. Instantly capture 3D models of yourself, friends, and family, and share the amazing results with the world.Trimensional uses both the screen and the front-facing camera on your iOS device, detecting patterns of light reflected off your face to build a true 3D model.Not only is it incredible technology, but it’s incredibly fun! Capture goofy expressions, view your face from any angle, and customize the look of the 3D rendering before sending it off to all of your friends.

So, turn out the lights, turn up your screen brightness, and get ready for your close-up as you capture 3D scans using your iPhone 4 or iPod Touch (4th Generation). For best results, an extremely dark room is required and iPhone screen brightness must be set to maximum.

Autodesk’s iOS App 123D Catch has been updated to include iPhone compatibility: now, globally, there are hundreds of millions of potential 3DScanners!


The new update complements iPad, Desktop and WebApp versions of 123D Catch.

With an enhanced workflow via the web app that includes editing tools to smooth surfaces, edit details and prepare for 3DPrinting, a new paradigm in DIY digital manufacturing has truly emerged.

Wondering how this app could be used?
