How can I use a Canvas Measurement Report?
Instead of manually measuring and drafting, scan with Canvas to save hours on:
Estimating/takeoffs
Sales/bidding
Permitting, when existing conditions are required
Drafting/remodeling without using design software
Detailed as-built documentation as a deliverable
You can also order editable CAD/BIM files in the following formats to share with your designer or architect

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 (including the Max series), which start at $999.

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.

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 Plan
What is Scan To Plan?

Scan To Plan is a service that converts your 3D scans into the Canvas Measurement Report. It can also be used to create editable, design-ready, and professional-grade CAD files in formats like SketchUp, Revit, Chief Architect, 2020, and AutoCAD.

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.
