About this app

PIX4Dcatch lets you create 3D models and maps with your mobile device.

Just point and shoot to gather data, ready for accurate 3D model generation. Use it to recreate reality and measure the world around you.

You can pair it with the viDoc RTK rover to achieve centimeter-accuracy and better precision for your project and single-point measurements.

To generate georeferenced 3D models, the collected images can be uploaded to PIX4Dcloud or exported to PIX4Dmatic. Both offer a 15-day trial to get started. Projects can also be freely exported, processed, and visualized in third-party photogrammetry software.

1- Scan: walk around your site. The app automatically gathers data and gives you live feedback to make sure you capture every detail.
2- Upload or export: upload your data to PIX4Dcloud, or export to desktop software PIx4Dmatic, and process the data. Get high-quality, accurate 2D and 3D outputs.
3- Analyze and share: share your results, measure the space, and enjoy all the benefits of a detailed 3D model of your surroundings.

This workflow can be used for tracking stockpiles on construction sites, measuring volumes, or keeping permanent records of underground piping or work. Measure single points with confidence and enhance your accuracy with viDoc. Digitize reality with your mobile device.

Device compatibility:
- All ARCore-enabled devices
- viDoc RTK rover (hardware case)

Google Play Services for AR needs to be installed in order to use the app.

Somewhat promising overall. While I don’t expect much out of smartphone app, it does its job well. However, was not able to take advantage of it. The scanning process itself was quite smooth, I took 551 pictures of my toaster, probably overkill, and the view looked very complete. In order to gain access to the processed view you have to make account. However, a bug prevented me from logging in via the app which meant I couldn't upload and process the images into a 3D model. Using a Samsung S10e.

Blueice Kman, We had another user with a similar issue. In their case, it was Firefox as the default browser. Could this be the same for you? Firefox is a compatible browser and normally works fine. Please see this thread for more info: https://community.pix4d.com/t/cannot-login-from-app-using-firefox-as-default-browser/22272

great concept and nice results but the app is finicky. I use a Samsung S21 Ultra 5G. the issue - when I scan a vehicle in an outdoor setting. the scan begins as a expected but once the app experiences an issue with texture or color, it presents a warning and will not recover. "Aim device at a surface with more texture or color". if I move to a known good position when it previously captured, the warning will not clear, nor will it resume regardless of where I point the device. I must restart.

Hi, We suspect that this is an issue with the device/subject matter and not the app. Please contact us at https://community.pix4d.com/c/pix4dcatch and we will help. Thanks!

(The Good) automates photo capture well, (The Great) overwrites photo geotags with good results (The Suggestion) since android limits the developer to low resolution images, allow user to import high res photo (The Bad) app doesn't work smoothly when not logged in or when there are a small number of projects in the app, so need to export often (The Really Bad) app CONSTANTLY logs out and only way to log in is with internet access, so unless you are doing all work downtown, you are in trouble.
