Sketchfab iOS LiDAR Scanning Challenge: Street Art

Back to overview

With the new LiDAR scanning functionality of the iPhone 12 Pro and the proliferation of apps that help you upload your scans directly to Sketchfab, we want to see what you can do with iOS LiDAR. This week we challenge you to scan street art (murals, graffiti, statues, etc.) using the iOS LiDAR sensor on your iPhone 12 Pro or iPad Pro, upload the model to Sketchfab, and tag it #LidarScanChallenge.

UPDATE: Winner – Aemo / Titan Stairwell – Progress by KyCAD IT

We were so blown away by your scans that we’ve decided to award three more prizes to three runners up:

Day 27 – Staircase by smallfly

SF Street Art 26 – 24th & York Mini Park by edemaistre

Pottergate Underpass Graffiti, Norwich by LWickwar
