The Long Answer
The Canvas iPad is 100% free to download, but in order to scan any spaces, you'll need a Structure Sensor (a 3D sensor for mobile devices also made by Occipital), and for the best results we highly recommend using our Wide Vision Lens. The sensor and lens are available on this website as a bundle (Structure Sensor for Canvas) for $399, but you may elect to buy just the sensor for $379. For more information about why the Wide Vision Lens is important, we recommend reading: What is the Wide Vision Lens and how does it affect my use of Canvas?).
As Canvas is only currently available on the iPad, you will also need a compatible iPad), which you can learn more about here: What iPad should I use with Canvas? We do offer a "Total Set Up" package for $799, which includes the iPad and is pre-assembled, pre-calibrated and delivered in a "scan-ready" box. This option is only available for the iPad 6th Generation (32GB, Wi-Fi Only) at this time, and it's a great option if you don't have an iPad but want the most fast-track path to getting started with Canvas.
Using the Canvas app, you can scan rooms for free, as well as export them via email at no additional cost. However, if you are planning on using Canvas with professional architecture and design programs like SketchUp or Revit, you will likely want to use our Scan To CAD service, which starts at $29 per scan. The cost of Scan To CAD is highly variable based on the size and complexity of the home (as the number of scans required will vary), as well as what file formats you need, so we recommend reading the following in full:
- What is Scan To CAD?
- How big of a space can I scan?
- Can I merge multiple scans to cover an entire property?
You also don't need to scan the entire home, nor do you need to convert all your scans at once. Some customers scan only the rooms in question (i.e., a kitchen, which would typically be only a single scan), some scan the entire property and convert everything all at once, while still others scan everything and then convert the scans as the project develops and the client pays them for that part of the project. We power projects all across the home improvement spectrum, including many outside the home, so we've seen it all!
