The new iSense also includes a major upgrade for the iSense app, available for both iPhone and iPad® users for free. The new app upgrade offers enhanced tracking, increased speed up to 3 times faster than previous versions, and full-color vibrancy via texture mapping. Improvements made to the tracking and speed deliver a smoother and easier scanning experience, quicker average scan times of 5 to 30 seconds, and an enjoyable user experience. This major app update is available for free to all existing iSense owners in the iOS app store.

The iSense is the only 3D scanner that provides easy, quick, precise, instant physical photography in full color that works with an iPhone or iPad. The versatile scan volume allows for iSense users to capture objects in a variety of sizes with ease and quality. The intuitive interface makes it simple to edit 3D files and prepare them for 3D printing, making it easy to convert the physical world into digital before returning it to physical again.

The iSense 3D Scanner uses a scanning engine by Occipital for its capture technology, and the 3D Systems iSense software app for processing and editing the data as part of a collaboration between 3DS and Occipital to innovate and optimize mobile 3D scanning for 3D printing.

"Working with 3D Systems has let us bring the latest improvements to our 3D scanning engine from the iPad to the iPhone for the first time ever," said Adam Rodnitzky, Vice President of Marketing for Occipital. "The iSense for iPhone and iPad brings the powerful and unique capabilities of content optimization for 3D printing designed for consumer use."

The iSense for iPhone is immediately available for pre-order on Cubify with commercial shipments expected to commence July 7, 2015. Priced at $499, the iSense for iPhone and iPad will be available on Cubify as well as at retailers B&H Photo and BestBuy.com.
