Updated: itSeez3D (4.1) 3D Scanner App Review

This review has been updated for itSeez3D 4.1 on November 14th, 2016. This update adds a new subscription-based business model, improved object scanning and a new environment scanning feature. 

In Part 1 of this Review I tested the Structure Sensor—or  iSense—hardware and the apps build by the manufacturer. In this second part, I’m focussing on a third party app. While the name might sound a bit funny, itSeez3D is very powerful and polished 3D Scanning app. The iPad version is specifically designed to be used with the Structure Sensor and there’s also a Windows version designed to be used with Intel’s RealSense R200 sensor.

Preview: 3D Room Scanning with Canvas & Structure Sensor

Occipital, makers of the Structure Sensor I reviewed earlier, has released Canvas — a Free 3D Room Scanning app for iPad.

When I give a presentation about 3D scanning, one question I always get is if it’s possible to 3D scan an entire room. I alway counter this with asking what the intended purpose is: aesthetically or metrical. The problem with the former is that 3D scanning technology doesn’t give eye-pleasing results yet so at this time we’re still bound to using 360° photography for virtual real estate tours.

3D Systems Sense for RealSense Software Review

The tests below are done with the now depreciated RealSense F200. I’ve recently re-tested the software with that sensor’s successor, the Intel RealSense SR300. That new model gives better scanning results, which you can see in my RealSense SR300 (3D Systems Sense) Review.
Update: I’ve had multiple reports that the Sense for RealSense software does not work with the SR300-based Razer Stargazer. It does work with the Creative BlasterX Senz3D that I have here, but that one was originally bought as SR300 SDK so I’m not sure if it will work with the retail version of that device.
