Meet Canvas, the fastest, easiest way to create a scale-accurate 3D model of a home — all from your iPad. We help you "skip ahead to the fun part" on every home improvement project.

Instead of capturing one measurement at a time, Canvas captures thousands per second, and then combines them into a single 3D representation of the space. You can view your 3D model from any angle, measure between any two points, and revisit it any time.

Our Scan To CAD service takes your 3D model one step further: for a small fee per model, you can convert your scans into editable, layered, professional-grade CAD files and jump right into 3D design for your next remodel, DIY project, or redecoration. All your measurements will be built right into the model, including the ones you never thought you’d need. We recommend scanning on a room by room basis, but you can merge your scans into a single model of the entire property.

Scan To CAD will output a .skp, .dwg, and a .dae file from your scans, which can be imported into most major CAD tools like Sketchup, Revit, AutoCAD, and others. From there, you can add objects, make architectural changes, or even create high-quality 3D renders. If you just want to use the scan from Canvas, you can export it easily as a .obj file.

You can see Canvas in action on a real project in this episode of Ask This Old House: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/ask-toh-cedar-planter-3d-scan.

Canvas is the ideal companion app for 3D-savvy architects, interior designers and decorators, design-build firms, general contractors, real estate agents, DIY enthusiasts, and more. Here's what consumers and professionals alike are already saying about Canvas:

"Canvas allows us to bring the job site back to the office." - Kyle Meyer, Black Timber Builders

"I was able to use the 3D model from Canvas to raise a possible installation issue to my contractor, avoiding at least 2 months of delay." - Mike Balzer, Homeowner and DIYer

"It allows me to take on more clients than I would otherwise be able to." - Noz Nozawa, Noz Design

"I don't know what you all did differently with this application, but it FAR exceeds anything I've ever seen before. You've taken computer vision to a whole new level, and completely blown my expectations out of the water.” - Mike McLaughlin, 3D Scanning Enthusiast

"Given that just about every other project starts with as-built modeling, it's easy to see how Canvas can be a game changer." - Mark Harrison, SketchUp

This app requires the Structure Sensor accessory for iPad. If you do not have a Structure Sensor, please visit http://structure.io to learn more about it and other ways you can use Structure Sensor to capture your world in 3D.

What's New

Canvas 1.4 is here!

New in this version:
• Updates to the "Scan" and "Home" information drop-down menus to make them even easier to use
• A more intuitive method to undo measurements
• Reprocessed scans (if available) are added to the .zip file when sharing via email, Airdrop, or other supported methods
• Several improvements to the scan uploader
• Accuracy enhancements for lens detection

Research Opt-In: Canvas 1.4 also introduces a new "Research Opt-In" that appears when you submit a Scan To CAD order. This is 100% opt-in, and it is off by default, but it's a great way to contribute specific Scan To CAD uploads for use in a wide variety of research that might lead to things like faster Scan To CAD, object recognition, and more. You'll usually also get a discount each time you opt in. Keep an eye out for this option when you submit a Scan To CAD order.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback, you can get in touch by emailing support@canvas.io. Happy scanning!
