Thanks to augmented reality, get live feedback on the covered area and the completeness of the scan with a 3D mesh layer overlayed on the video frame (only on Apple iPad Pro and Apple iPhone 12 Pro equipped with LiDAR sensor).
Pause and continue
Pause and restart
Pause the recording at any time. The augmented reality feedback remains on your device’s screen and shows you which parts have already been covered.
upload images to cloud and inspect models
Upload the captured images to PIX4Dcloud or export them to PIX4Dmapper or PIX4Dmatic to generate accurate and easy to share 3D models and point clouds. Measure distances, areas, and volumes, and perform virtual inspections.

High quality 3D outputs from your pocket

Utilize the power of photogrammetry technology to reconstruct reality in 3D

Easy capturing
Easy capturing
Everyone can get only the data that matters to create ground 3D models, with one tap. Scanning is done with real-time 3D meshing for scene completion feedback.
Capture precise images by changing angle, overlap and flight speed
Actionable data
Unlike a standard video, PIX4Dcatch takes advantage of the GPS and IMU data from the mobile device for the generation of scaled and georeferenced 3D outputs.
Pix4D ecosystem integration
Integrated in Pix4D’s ecosystem
As part of Pix4D’s product ecosystem, PIX4Dcatch enables users to expand their business offering, creating ground 3D models in no time.
