LiDAR Test Starts up Again

 Am now finally getting into my LIDAR test,  on a Apple 12 Pro phone for now.   Using the package Polycam, which looks easy to use and is free for the initial testing, then has a monthly fee.  Examples of use here:  https://sketchfab.com/polycam/collections/polycam    And allows you to share scanned models with other packages.    Anyone else doing this?  Lets share a test!

More about how to use LiDAR here.    Below is more background, repeating ... what I placed here earlier to give background.

Did you buy a new iPad Pro? How about a new iPhone 12 Pro? These are the LiDAR apps to try right now, regardless of your background or experience.   By  Brian M Wolfe

The second-generation 11-inch iPad Pro, fourth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and now the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max offer a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) Scanner that will play a huge role in Apple's augmented reality initiatives in the years to come.

Here's more about LiDAR and apps you can use right now on your new iPad Pro to test the technology.

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR uses light to measure distance using invisible pulsating green spectrum lasers. These pulses (which occur thousands of times per minute) measure how long it takes for the light to get back to the sensor. By doing so, it paints a "picture" of the environment in front of the scanner. .... "
