With Skanect, you can quickly and easily scan, edit, process, and export data for use with your favorite 3D modeling software or to your 3D printer.

With Skanect, capturing a full color 3d model of an object, a person or a room has never been so easy and affordable. Skanect transforms your Carmine, Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion depth sensor into an ultra-low cost scanner able to create 3D meshes out of real scenes in a few minutes. Enter the world of 3D scanning now!



Unlike existing technologies, Skanect can acquire dense 3D information about a scene at up to 30 frames per second. Just move around your sensor to capture a full set of viewpoints, and you will get a mesh at interactive speeds.


Skanect makes it easy to scan different kind of scenes by providing a set of predefined scenarios, suitable for most use cases. Then share your models online in a few clicks, no need to be a trained professional to start scanning!

Ultra-Low Cost

Skanect leverages consumer-grade 3D sensors, thereby limiting the hardware cost to a fraction of the cost of previous scanning solutions. For a personal and hobbyist use, you can even download a free version of Skanect!
