RealityScan is now free to download on iOS

We’re pleased to announce that RealityScan is now available to download for free on iOS! 

RealityScan is a 3D scanning app for mobile devices that turns photos into high-fidelity 3D models. The app has been designed to be super-easy to use, so no experience is required to get started. 

Simply take photos of the object you want to replicate in 3D using your smartphone or tablet, and the app will assemble them into a 3D model. Once you’re happy with the results, you can export to Sketchfab and share your creation with the world.   

Ultra-realistic 3D models are just a few snaps away 

RealityScan is created by Capturing Reality, a photogrammetry solution developer that is part of the Epic Games family. Their mission is to make 3D scanning accessible to all creators. Capturing Reality joined forces with Quixel— creators of Megascans, the world’s largest scan library—to bring you a new tool that simplifies the process of creating CG models from 3D scans. 

With RealityScan, anyone can now create 3D models from real-world objects and use them to enhance the realism of their visualization projects. 

The high-fidelity scans found in the Quixel Megascans library were created using the desktop version of this application, RealityCapture. RealityScan takes this powerful technology and puts it in your pocket. That means all creators now have the ability to create highly accurate 3D models.

Automated cloud processing

Once you’ve taken photographs of an object, RealityScan does the hard work for you by assembling the model using cloud processing.  

You can then upload your model to Sketchfab, where you can publish, share and sell 3D, VR, and AR content. From there, simply download your model for use in Unreal Engine, Twinmotion, MetaHuman, or any other 3D application. 

And that’s not all—upon your first upload to Sketchfab, you’ll automatically be upgraded to a Sketchfab Pro account for a whole year! 

We’ve got big plans for RealityScan in the future, with more features and improvements in store, as well as an Android version arriving in 2023.
Download the app, enjoy scanning, and don’t forget to tag us if you post your scans on social using #RealityScan.
