Epic Games’ Free ‘RealityScan’ App Now on Android

Photogrammetry app uses pictures taken with Android or iOS device to create high-fidelity 3D models; export to Sketchfab or download to use in other apps such as UE or Twinmotion.

Epic Games’ RealityScan, the free-to-download photogrammetry application, is now available for Android. The app, which launched on iOS last year, allows users to create high-fidelity 3D models of objects just by taking multiple pictures of them with their phone or tablet. Export models to Sketchfab to share or download in other applications such as Unreal Engine or Twinmotion.

Exporting models to Sketchfab is free. The number of models uploadable to Sketchfab accounts is subscription based. However, users will be automatically upgraded to Sketchfab Pro for free for one year after their first upload.

The application’s latest release offers a streamlined user interface with more intuitive workflows. Here are some of the improvements:

  • A new step-based workflow takes users through the scanning process and allows them to backtrack through the steps to make changes.
  • Easily find and delete unconnected images from the Project Library and optionally add new ones to replace them.
  • From the Project Library, users can directly open a preview of the final model to see how it will look in Sketchfab – made possible with the embedded Sketchfab viewer.
  • Add and edit the project’s name and description with automatic synchronization with Sketchfab.

RealityScan requires an Android phone or tablet that supports ARCore, or an iPhone or iPad running iOS 16 and later.
