What’s LiDAR?

LiDAR is a sensor that measures points in 3D space by timing how long it takes for infrared light beams to bounce back to their source. It’s the same technology that powers self-driving cars, and it is now embedded into the latest generation of Pro iOS devices.

Canvas combines LiDAR data with its own computer vision technology to create accurate 3D scans and CAD files.

Learn more about LiDAR in Apple’s Keynote featuring Canvas.

How Canvas Helps
Home Improvement Pros

Using Canvas saves my clients approximately $1,500 on measuring and modeling their home, and they get me out of their house in 15% of the time.

Walter Faustlin

Lotus Construction Group
Our whole process is about service, speed, and making it easier for our clients. Canvas helps us do all three better.

Paul McManus

McManus Kitchen and Bath
Being able to measure and model unique rooms as fast as simple rooms is invaluable. Being able to scan unusual spaces enables me to do what my team does best: interior design.

Noz Nozawa

Noz Design
Canvas has enabled me to work faster and easier. It totally simplifies the client onboarding experience, especially when the space includes complex architectural elements.

Shannon Christensen

Christensen Design Studio
I have reduced the time to measure a 2,500 square foot building from 2 hours of measuring and an 1.5 hours of data input to 30 minutes of scanning and sending the scans to be converted to a Revit model.

Thomas Reynolds

Green Stories
Canvas allows us to turn around schematic designs faster and more profitably. Clients are more engaged with our 3D presentations, which we can generate quicker and better thanks to Canvas’s Chief Architect support.

Have questions?

How do I get started?

First, you'll need a compatible LiDAR-enabled device (iPhone 12/13/14 Pro / Pro Max or iPad Pro).
Next, download Canvas: LiDAR 3D Measurements. From there, create your Canvas account and start scanning!

What devices should I use with Canvas?

To use Canvas, you’ll want an iPad or iPhone with an embedded LiDAR sensor. This includes the 2020 iPad Pros, which start at $799, as well as the iPhone 12 Pro / iPhone 13 Pro / iPhone 14 Pro / iPhone 15 Pro (including the Max series), which start at $999.

Learn more

What kind of accuracy can I expect?

If you are using Canvas with a LiDAR-enabled iPad or iPhone (including most Pro models launched since 2020), most measurements should be within 1-2% of what's verified manually with a tape measure, laser distance meter, or existing blueprint.

If you are using Canvas without any kind of 3D sensor, most measurements are likely to be within ~5% of what's manually verified via similar methods, but you may find some measurements outside of that range.

How big of a space can I scan?

There is no specific limit on the size of a space that can be scanned. However, Canvas is optimized for scanning residential environments, which tend not to exceed 5,000 square feet. You may also need or find it more convenient to break up your scans by room or floor, and we can always merge them together as part of the Scan To CAD service.

Learn more

Can I use Canvas outdoors to scan exteriors?

Canvas and Scan To CAD were both built for scanning residential interiors, and you might run into various limitations when using Canvas on exterior projects. However, these limitations can often be overcome with a bit of extra effort.

Learn more

Will Canvas work in non-residential settings?

Canvas was purpose-built and optimized for scanning residential environments. We've seen many customers use it successfully and regularly across all kinds of spaces (including residential, retail, commercial, industrial, and even archaeological!), but you may run into certain limitations using Canvas outside of its intended purpose.

Scan To CAD
What is Scan To CAD?

Scan To CAD is a service that converts your 3D scans into editable, design-ready, and professional-grade CAD files.

Scan To CAD can produce native files ready-to-use with SketchUp, Revit, Chief Architect, 2020, and AutoCAD, as well as PDF drawings.

Learn more

I need higher accuracy than 1-2%. Can I submit my own dimensions to improve accuracy?

On its own, Canvas will typically yield accuracy tolerances within ~1-2%. For projects requiring a higher level of accuracy, you may submit manual critical dimensions with your order, which can be applied during the Scan To CAD process.

Learn more

How does pricing work?

An estimate will be generated in-app, and then you will be billed upon delivery for square footage actually processed into CAD. Square footage is calculated by floor, and overlapping or duplicated areas will only be counted once per order.

Learn more

Can I merge multiple scans together?

Absolutely! Our Scan To CAD service can convert your 3D scans into editable, design-ready, and professional-grade CAD files that can either be processed individually or merged into a single, global CAD model from multiple scans.
