Editing Reality

Utilize these in app features to customize, export, and share your captures


Accidently capture something you did not intend? Use the crop feature to clean up your capture and remove any excess. When you press crop, a large crop box will appear over your capture. Highlight the side of the box you would like to adjust and slide it in or out. To move the entire crop box, highlight all of its sides. Once you have cropped, be sure to save.


Drag and drop 3D objects to edit and enhance your capture. To change the size of the object, place two fingers on opposite edges of the object and either pinch your fingers together or slide your fingers apart. To rotate the object, place two fingers on opposite edges of the object and turn in either clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Once you have added your objects, be sure to save.


Want to highlight part of your capture? Add a note to direct viewers to certain details or objects within your capture. You can add text to your notes as well. If a capture has spatial notes added, a star will appear next to the explore button. Enter explore mode to click through spatial notes.


The explore feature allows you to move around your capture and view from any angle. You can zoom in on the details or zoom out to see the mesh in its entirety. Enter explore mode by pressing the explore button. Use your fingers to move around the capture. You can pinch the capture to zoom in or out, double tap to transport to a new part of the capture, or drag two fingers simultaneously to change the angle of the capture.


To share a capture on social media or to send as an SMS, press the arrow in the bottom right corner. From there, a menu will pop up and you can choose where to share the capture. This is also where you can download the capture to your phone, copy the link to a capture, or report a capture that has violated our community guidelines.

vr & web

You can view your captures on a desktop web browser or in a VR headset! Just share the link to a capture from the app on your phone. For iOS devices and Macs, AirDrop works really well. You can also copy/paste the link into a note, or send it to yourself via a messaging app. You can open that link in any web browser.

If you open it in a VR web browser, you’ll see an “ENTER VR” button in the top-right corner of the screen. Click that to enter the capture as a VR experience.


You can now download any of your captures as a 3D model directly from the app. We currently support OBJ, GLTF, and PLY file formats, which make it possible to use captures from in Blender, Cinema4D, Unity, Unreal, Maya, and most other popular creative software applications.

Once you have opened the capture you would like to export:
1. Click the share button on your capture
2. Click the new Download Mesh icon
3. Select the file type you wish to download and click the “Send Link” button next to your selection
4. Decide which method you want to use to share the download link (text message, AirDrop, email, etc.)
5. Send it!

You can also download the model by opening one of your captures in a desktop web browser, and clicking the download button in the upper-right corner of the screen. You’ll need to be logged in to see it.
