Skydio 3D Scan

Adaptive scanning software for fast autonomous data capture and 3D models generation in ultra-high resolution.

Current inspection methods are inefficient and dangerous

Human inspections

Tower climbs, snooper trucks, and other human-based inspection methods are expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous.

Manual drone inspections

Manual drones are expensive and have untrustworthy obstacle avoidance, requiring many hours of pilot training to avoid crashes.

Complete the mission accurately without needing to refly

Pair Skydio 3D Scan with Skydio X10 drone and you can view 3D models of your data instantly, right on your controller, using Onboard Modeling. Quickly verify that you have a complete data set, and correct if you don’t – without another trip. Use the model for a spatial reference if you want to zoom in to see a capture for a specific area for on-the-spot decision making.

Scanning Modes

Create high quality models of any structure

Automatically capture any structure or scene, indoors or outdoors, with minimal pilot training or oversight.

Outdoor 3D capture

Indoor capture

Navigate complex interior environments to generate accurate digital twins of power plants, factory floors, and more.

Watch video

Generate digital twins of indoor spaces

Capture the interior of an environment, its contents, or both. Skydio autonomously navigates places other tools can’t, capturing high-resolution imagery to generate accurate digital twins.

Incredible detail. Stunning quality.

The future of aircraft and incident inspection is here - Skydios 3D Scan can generate incredibly detailed 3D models of structures with greater reliability, precision, and safety than manual methods.

Compatible with leading photogrammetry software

Skydio 3D Scan photogrammetry compatibility lets you use leading third-party photogrammetry software to create 3D models, exporting high-quality scan photos with full metadata.
