From underground utilities to forensics, create a model of your scanned objects for use in different industries

Underground utilities

Underground utilities

Create geolocalized open trenches models by simply walking around them. Accurately document and calculate volumes for invoicing.

As-built measurements and 3D models


Quickly and accurately collect, process, and visualize as-built measurements and 3D models, even in the most demanding conditions.

Digital surface models, point clouds, 3D models


Complete an entire survey in a few minutes and create a 3D point cloud, a digital surface model, and a true orthomosaic of your area.

Clear picture for investigators and forensic teams


Efficiently build accurate 3D collision scenes, add detailed measurements, and share insights with major forensic software platforms.

What is PIX4Dcatch?

PIX4Dcatch is a mobile application designed for iOS and Android devices which enables you to take images of a scene, ready to be converted into a 3D model geolocated and in real time.

High quality 3D outputs from your pocket

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

recording video
Capture ground data
Walk along or around the area of interest. PIX4Dcatch automatically records video frames with positional and orientation information.
Track progress with catch
Ensure completeness
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 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, measurable and easy to share 3D models and point clouds.

Elevate 3D scanning with the power of RTK and photogrammetry on a mobile device

The viDoc RTK rover connects your smartphone to any NTRIP service of your choice to get RTK accuracy without a mobile station, for a fraction of the time and price.
