Update 11/15/17: Due to a lack of support and updated software from the manufacturer, our iSense is no longer available.


The iSense is a small 3D scanner that attaches to an iPad. One iSense, along with an iPad, is available for checkout at the Do Space Help Desk. Members only need to have a signed Technology Borrower Agreement on file to use the iSense for two hours within the building.

Only weighing 99.2 grams, the iSense clips onto the iPad without adding any bulk. Simply create a 3D scan by slowly walking the iPad with connected iSense around an object.The scan volume is 8 inches to as large as 118 inches. Prior familiarity with iPads is a bonus but not necessary to use the iSense.

Do Space Members have previously used the iSense to create 3D scans of their heads, helmets, and other small objects.

Once an object has been 3D scanned, members can export the scan as an STL file from the iSense. By bringing the STL file to the Help Desk, members can add their scan to the Do Space 3D queue, choose a print color, and find out the cost. And in about a week, members can pick up their 3D printed object!
