Skanect 1.9 (with Structure Sensor) 3D Scanning Review

This review of the Skanect 3D scanning software has been a long time coming and is one of the most-requested ones, too. One of the first 3D scanners I reviewed was the Structure Sensor. I was planning to make a review trilogy of that, starting with testing it with the free (sample) apps by manufacturer Occipital. The second episode was a review of the excellent itSeez3D software.

I actually started testing Skanect right after that, but although I liked the overall workflow I was disappointed by the texture quality. After some research, I discovered that a new version — 1.9 — was being developed and would fix that very problem, among other improvements. So I postponed the review and started beta-testing the new version.

Skanect 1.9 has been in development for over half a year. Let’s find out if it’s was worth waiting for!

itSeez3D 3D Scanner App Review

This review has been updated for itSeez3D 4.1. This update adds a new subscription-based business model, improved object scanning and a new environment scanning feature. I also made some small edits for version 4.3 that includes a face-detection bypass for scanning people with helmets (and VR headsets).

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.

There’s also a Windows version designed to be used with tablets that have an Intel RealSense R200 sensor. I Reviewed that version in combination with the Wacom MobileStudio Pro.

Structure Sensor 3D Scanner Review

If you’ve read my previous 3D Scanner Review of the 3D Systems Sense you know that I was impressed by the ease-of-use and geometric details for a device priced below €450. But the quality of the color information — or textures — the Sense captures are completely underwhelming. This has been fixed with the Sense 2 I reviewed later)

In this Review I’m testing the Structure Sensor made by a Occipital. This device was also available as the 3D Systems iSense but that rebranded version has been discontinued*.

I got my Structure Sensor from the Dutch 3D Printing and 3D Scanning Store MakerPoint.
