Trimensional: MakerBot Edition
By Trimensional, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Trimensional: MakerBot Edition is a revolutionary 3D scanner that lets you quickly capture 3D models, upload them to Thingiverse.com, and print them out on your MakerBot 3D printer.
"It actually works amazingly well… this really is a 3-D object scanner for the iPhone." -FastCompany
Technology: The app takes advantage of both the screen and the front-facing camera on your iOS device, detecting patterns of light reflected off your skin (and other surfaces) to build a true 3D model.
Speed: The 3D scanning process takes 4 seconds in total, from the moment you hit the capture button to the time you're looking at a 3D model which you can rotate, zoom, and share.
Exporting: Upload ready-to-print STL files directly to Thingiverse.com or export any scan as an STL, OBJ, or PLY file via email, with optional mesh smoothing. STL: watertight geometry suitable for 3D printing, OBJ: texture-mapped polygonal model compatible with Maya, Blender, and most other 3D software packages, PLY: point cloud with position (XYZ) and color (RGB) information per vertex.
-Capture your own 3D scans
-Browse your 3D scan library
-Rotate and zoom your 3D models
-Pick from 6 different 3D rendering modes
-Upload 3D models to Thingiverse.com
-Export STL, OBJ, PLY via email
-Share images, videos, and animated GIFs via email

For best results, scan objects in an extremely dark room and hold device steady 4-8 inches from the scanned object (10-20 cm). Watch our videos at http://www.trimensional.com for examples of how to get great scans with the app. Enjoy!
"This is the most innovative mobile phone application I have ever seen to date. Absolutely brilliant." -App Store User Review
What's New in Version 1.05
-iOS 8, iOS 7, and iOS 6 support
-Restored Thingiverse upload functionality
-New "Smooth" rendering option is on by default
The most fun for the money!
I found it on the internet that the next 3D Scanner may be in my pocket, and after I found this app it actually was. I took a few scans, picked the best (dark black non reflective space behind is critical) downloaded to my Da Vinci Duo, and in about two hours I had my first 3D portret. This was the most fun for the money.
Novel, cute, useless
If you know anything about 3D, this app basically produces a low resolution bump map based off an image. All faces appear as distorted mongoloids -it's funny, and most renders rival clown fun house mirrors in terms of accuracy. The posted screen shots are best case scenarios. It's pretty much useless. I give it one star for entertainment/being silly. Realistically, I couldn't print or utilize the 3d objects (if one refers to them as "3d objects") this app produces with any sense of usefulness. I could achieve 100x better results tracing a few profile pics brute-force in a few minutes.
I would not want my name mentioned with this joke of an app. If you are actually trying to find a scanner app, keep looking. This one is just a joke app to separate money from your wallet.
I will start the process of getting my money back after I finish this review.
