Adobe revealed a 3D Scanning Tool For AR, with the increasing popularity of immersive technologies, designers find themselves in constant need of new 3D models to create rich virtual user experiences. But the creation of 3D assets is still an extremely complex task that requires a high level of domain-specific knowledge.
Scantastic allows you to create a 3D model of the real object in minutes using a photogrammetry approach.
Scantastic makes the creation of 3D assets accessible to everyone. Using nothing but a mobile device (combined with the Adobe server-based photogrammetry pipeline), users can easily scan objects in their physical environment and turn them into 3D models which can then be imported into tools like Adobe Dimension and Adobe Aero.

How does the Adobe Scantastic process work?
All you need is a latest-generation mobile device, and once you start Adobe’s Scantastic process tool with Adobe Dimension and Adobe Aero, we will begin to analyze the environment that surrounds it, and the elements we want to scan in 3D. Selected the area from for photogrammetry, the user can start the capture process, once these photos have been captured, they can be saved to create a cloud for processing.
Once the 3D model is created, the user can then insert it into a 3D scene within Adobe Dimension where the model can be rotated and repositioned or enlarged.
With the 3D model in Adobe, we can go on to create a unique experience in AR. We can send the 3D model to another user, who can launch the model in Adobe Aero to show the digital model of the object in a real scene traced live through the mobile device camera.
Essentially, Scantastic allows users to 3D capture a real-world object and create a scanned 3D model, and then go and share it with other users for the AR experience.
