During capture 3D Creator displays the scan on-screen and provides useful feedback during the process to successful capture a water-tight 3D scan. The scanning time is very quick (15-60 seconds) and any editing can be performed on the device. The resulting scan can be printed, shared or used for avatar creation, gaming and in augmented reality. 3D scanning is available out-of-the-box and does not require the installation of additional software. All processing is performed locally on the device so a data connection is not required to generate the mesh.
