Shapematic is a new app that just launched in the App Store, and that aims to turn your iPhone into a 3D scanner. Simply snap a few pictures under different angles of the object you want to scan, and let the app work its software magic. The result will be a three-dimensional reconstruction of the object. The app also includes a feature that lets you edit your 3D photos to remove little flaws that might have showed up in the process.

The 3D models created are printing ready, and you can request a 3D print directly from the application to get the three-dimensional model shipped to you.

Download Shapematic in the App Store for $0.99.

    how much does it cost per model to be sent to you?

    • ConduciveMammal

      Id imagine it varies depending on the size and complexity of the model

  • Rob180sx

    Ios 7.1 only…. Booo!

    • Alborz

      one more reason to leave JB 😀

        This would never get me to leave a jailbreak.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Really? This will make you unjailbreak your phone? There’s another app called Sceene I believe or something like that and it does the EXACT same thing except it’s free and you don’t have to be on 7.1

      • Alborz

        well I didn’t jailbreak it ni the first place… I was jailbroken on iOS 6 and really happy with it. but with iOS 7 I just didn’t find enough reasons to jailbreak. i’m already on 7.1 🙂

      • Arthur Geron

        Improved control center(you can for example, not let airplane mode to be turned off trough the lock screen), anti-theft tweak and only the other thousands of new functionalities you can add to your iphone

        You can aswell stay with the default system, but I don’t see why(or how) 1 app would be better then all those things I just said.

      • Alborz

        Well the features you mention are definetly nice to have. but not necessary for me. I’m just really happy with iOS 7 and what it has to offer. and being a UI designer for a company that develops Apps for iOS exclusively, I can’t imagine not having the latest version of iOS on all my devices. for me, having the new call screen is more important than that airplane mode feature you mentioned.

      • Guest

        How would this be JB related? just lol.

      • Alborz

        because iOS 7.1 is not jailbroken yet.
        that’s how it’s related.

      • Arthur Geron

        Just wait until someone cracks it to work with iOS 7.0.X

      • Alborz

        that’s not going to happen

      • Arthur Geron

        That’s probably what someone said about jailbreaking back when the 1st iPhone was launched, only someone who doesn’t know enough about programming says something like that, aren’t you just that mad that you’re at 7.1 and can’t have jailbreak? Lol I saw your comment down below

      • Arthur Geron

        Oh wait there’s another app that does the same thing and it’s free.

      • Arsanny Lintang

        so I would leave my jailbreak phone just only to buy this piece of crap apps? please be realistic, who actually spend $1.99 for this apps? and leave the jailbreak community? this past months, tweaks that came out has been fantastic for example Auxo 2, that tweak has changed the way i used my iPhone and now you’re telling us to back off all of our jailbroken devices and update to 7.1 and download this piece of crap? .

    • leart

      How to push users to upgrade….

      • Alborz

        this isn’t an app made by Apple. they’re simply using APIs only working on 7.1 devices.

      • leart

        yeah but they can deal with apple for this

      • Alborz

        you have no idea what you’re talking about.

      • leart

        Why you work for apple?
        This is my opinion by the way, don’t asked to correct me.

      • Alborz

        I don’t work for Apple. I work as a UI designer for a company who creates Apps for iOS.
        And welcome to the internet.

      • leart

        Ok now goodbye

      • Froo

        I would not buy a cracked version of any software and I would never voluntarily give up my jailbreak (for this App). Apple is still behind the curve even though 7.1 does much of what I’ve had for years on my jailbroken phones and iPads.
        I run 7.0.6 and would maybe even go back to 6 if I could, but definitely would not upgrade any of my devices to get 7.1 to run this package.
        This App is intriguing, but no 7.1 for me until it is jailbroken.

    • Tony

      Boo is right, was interested but not a chance I’m dumping my break for this.

  • Maxim∑

    I wonder how this compares to 123D catch which is free

  • Snailpo

    Idk so far this app sucks, i thought it would be kind of cool, especially cause it is cheap.. But it doesn’t work right.

  • Amazing idea, but the app simply doesn’t work and crashes all the time. Perhaps you guys should give it a try 🙂

  • Qasim

    Totally wasted a dollar

  • Jason W

    Is there a way to fake App Store into thinking you have 7.1 on Jailbroke 7.0.6?

    • Upgrade your iOS to 7.1 and quit stealing from people? Nvm I reread what you wrote. Thought you meant to get it on a piracy App Store. My bad!

    • sharp44MAG .

      I have the same question. Not sure how to on iOS 7.

    • sharmanhall


      Edit the “Product Version” in that plist.


  • Arthur Geron

    Finally something worth paying for! I wish they made it possible to export the models to blender.

    • Ying Mossad

      Yes you can export in OBJ format

  • ChildishGambinoGotThatSwagger

    That looks cool. Now someone make video using it so I don’t have to waste a dollar.

  • Dani Hayes

    Seems like a nice novelty app.

  • khan jaar

    Photosynth does that too.

  • khan jaar

    And works on all iOS 7 versions. And 6.

  • khan jaar

    Photosynth does that too.
