The Qlone 3D Scanner

Qlone is an all-in-one tool for 3D scanning. Using your phone’s camera, it’s easy to 3D scan real objects to use in all types of projects from games, AR/VR content creation, 3D printing, STEM Education, and more. All you have to do is print the included AR mat and place your object in the middle of the mat to begin the scanning process. An Augmented Reality dome will appear in the app to guide you. There’s also the option to 3D scan objects from two different angles, which will auto-merge for the best 3D results. 

Texture, Sculpt, Clean, and Resize

The app features a wide range of tools to help you modify your 3D model before exporting too. You can adjust the texture, brightness, and saturation of the 3D model. Choose colors from the object and apply them to directly and even blur individual sections for smoother results. Some of the tools allow you to erase unwanted areas, sculpt and alter the shape of your object as well. 

To lower file size export, you can simplify mesh details or set the scale size of your model for 3D printing. Plus, with Qlone, you can export your models in a wide range of file formats like OBJ, STL, FBX, USDZ, GLB (Binary gITF), PLY, and X3D. Along with Buildbox, it can be used on SketchFab, Google Poly, Lens Studio, CGTrader, Shapeways, and i.materialise. 

Share & Build 

Qlone is a great tool to use for creating your own 3D objects and game assets. You can share your 3D creations easily via email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, and even as an animated GIF. It’s great for collaboration and to promote your game as well.

    How do I make an app for my business?

  • Avatar Hari says:

    Awsome and its really nice. I was able to scan a very small object successfully, but the object has 94K vertices and triangles, defnitely it will be a limitation with Buildbox to use the object direct. It would be nice if buildbox team showcase a tutorial on how to use the object with 94K vertices and triangles.

      In the Qlone app, you can just slide the Low-Poly switch in the export screen and the no. of polygons in the mesh will be significantly reduced!
