Canvas is a new app and advanced sensor that uses augmented reality to create 3D images of your space directly from your mobile device

Until now, there has never been an easy way to accurately measure physical spaces without the assistance of a professional. Enter Canvas, a first-of-its-kind mobile application that works with an augmented reality sensor designed specifically for home improvement projects.

By combining the Canvas app and the Structure Sensor, users can capture an accurate 3D model of a home or physical space in minutes. Users can view a 3D model from any angle, measure between any two points, and revisit it anytime. For design professionals, the app’s Scan To CAD will output a file compatible with most architectural design software. From there, the user can add objects, make architectural changes, or even create high-quality 3D renders. Both products were created by Occipital and brought to the market in under three years.
