RealityScan from Epic Games is now available for Android devices

Epic Games has announced that RealityScan is now available for Android as well as for iOS devices, putting a powerful, free-to-download photogrammetry application into the hands of almost anyone with a modern smartphone or tablet.
With RealityScan, users can create high-fidelity 3D models of objects just by taking multiple pictures of them with their phone or tablet—RealityScan will do the rest. Then, they can export them to Sketchfab to share with the rest of the world, or download them for use in other applications like Unreal Engine or Twinmotion.

Exporting your models to Sketchfab is free. The number of models you can upload to your Sketchfab account per month depends on the selected Sketchfab plan, but users will automatically be upgraded to Sketchfab Pro for free for one year with their first upload.

Since Epic Games launched RealityScan as an iOS app last year, they have seen over 200,000 downloads, and many thousands of models created by the community and uploaded to Sketchfab. 

The latest release of this application also offers a streamlined user interface and more intuitive workflows. These are just some of the improvements:

  • • A new step-based workflow takes users through the scanning process, and they can always back up through the steps if they need to make changes.

  • • Users can easily find and delete unconnected images from the Project Library, and optionally add new ones to replace them.

  • • Users can directly open a preview of the final model as it will look in Sketchfab from the Project Library, thanks to an embedded Sketchfab viewer.

  • • Users can add and edit a name and description for the project, which will be automatically synchronized to Sketchfab.

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

RealityScan is now available as a free download for iOS and Android devices:
