3D and 2D Capture

Create High-Quality 3D Models in a Fraction of the Time

Use 3D Capture to autonomously capture a structure’s surface from every angle with complete coverage and ultra-high-definition to generate 3D models with minimal pilot oversight, or generate 2D orthomosaics flying a planar pattern leveraging the power of full obstacle avoidance.

Adaptive Mapping

Scan Effortlessly Without the Risk of Crashing

3D Scan’s Adaptive Mapping iteratively builds a global map of complex surfaces using contour-hugging motion planning, reducing the need for pilots to plan photogrammetry capture flights by hand or settle for rudimentary automation.

Edge Model Viewer

Complete the Mission Accurately Without Needing to Refly

Save processing time with the Edge Model Viewer by allowing the drone operator to view a simplified 3D model on a web app directly from the drone to their laptop or mobile device in the field to validate that they have full coverage.

Compatible with Leading Photogrammetry Software

3D Scan’s Photogrammetry Compatibility lets you use leading 3rd party photogrammetry software to create 3D models, exporting high-quality scan photos with full metadata.
