Trimensional makes for a fascinating tech demo but it feels a little gimmicky

What's New

Share videos and animated GIFs of your 3D scans, and advanced users can now choose to export 3D models!

New Features:
• Create a Quicktime movie of any 3D model rotating (shared via email).
• Create an animated GIF of any 3D model rotating (shared via email).
• New "flick" gesture to restart spinning models in 3D view.
• 3D Model Export (In-App Purchase): Export any scan as an OBJ, STL, or PLY file via email, with optional mesh smoothing. OBJ: texture-mapped polygonal model compatible with Maya, Blender, and most other 3D software packages, STL: watertight geometry suitable for 3D printing, PLY: point cloud with position (XYZ) and color (RGB) information per vertex.

More improvements are on the way, so stay tuned. If there are features you'd like to see added, let us know via the "Send Feedback" button in the app. Thanks!

App Description

The world's first 3D scanner for iPhone is here. Instantly capture 3D models of yourself, friends, and family, and share the amazing results with the world.

"Trimensional… is this week’s Best Thing Ever, without a doubt. It’s one of those photography apps that stands out against all the rest because it’s so different." -Cult of Mac

"It actually works amazingly well… this really is a 3-D object scanner for the iPhone." -FastCompany

"This is the most innovative mobile phone application I have ever seen to date. Absolutely brilliant." -Matthew Brooks, App Store User Review

Trimensional uses both the screen and the front-facing camera on your iOS device, detecting patterns of light reflected off your face to build a true 3D model.

Not only is it incredible technology, but it's incredibly fun! Capture goofy expressions, view your face from any angle, and customize the look of the 3D rendering before sending it off to all of your friends.

Features:
-Capture your own 3D scans
-Browse your 3D scan library
-Rotate and zoom your 3D models
-Pick from 6 different 3D rendering modes
-View a 3D slideshow
-Email images, movies, & animated GIFs to friends
-Save images to camera roll for posting to the web

Features for Advanced Users:
-3D Model Export (In-App Purchase): Export any scan as an OBJ, STL, or PLY file via email, with optional mesh smoothing. OBJ: texture-mapped polygonal model compatible with Maya, Blender, and most other 3D software packages, STL: watertight geometry suitable for 3D printing, PLY: point cloud with position (XYZ) and color (RGB) information per vertex.

So, turn out the lights, turn up your screen brightness, and get ready for your close-up as you capture 3D scans using your iPhone 4 or 4th Generation iPod Touch*. For best results, an extremely dark room is required and iPhone screen brightness must be set to maximum.

HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA: Laser-engrave your 3D scans in crystal at www.trimensional.com/crystal/

*REQUIRES FRONT-FACING CAMERA.

NOTE: Users running older iOS versions 4.0.x have reported problems launching the app. Upgrading to iOS 4.1 or greater is confirmed to solve this problem. We messed up and we apologize greatly for this error. We are working on a solution for those unable to upgrade their iOS version.
