Qlone free app turns iPhone into a 3D scanner
With the application Qlone you can easily transform objects in three-dimensional models, using only the camera of the mobile device and a Mat with special markings.
App for iOS developed by the Israeli company EyeCue Vision Technologies. It produces the Board game with the technology of recognition of objects, as well as toys for the big brands — Lego and Playmobil.
What makes the program Qlone, cannot be called in the strict sense of three-dimensional scanning, as it requires much more sophisticated equipment. But it uses a relatively simple method to create detailed 3D images of a physical object.
«Rug», you can print it yourself or order the delivery by mail. It is a black and white checkerboard grid which reads the iPhone camera. The user needs only to place the subject in the center and around it with a smartphone in hand. The process requires connecting to a cloud service and takes a few seconds.
The received 3D image can be edited and optimized in the application that has the appropriate tools. But the export models will require payment — the minimum price of $2.99. Available formats: OBJ, STL, PLY and X3D.
