FAQ

What is Qlone?

Qlone is an all-in-one 3D tool for everyone. We have made it easy and fast to scan real objects, using your phone's camera, modify them in app and seamlessly export the result to many platforms, 3D file formats and 3D printers. You can even bring your models to life in AR!

Is it available on Android as well?

Yes, it is available on both iOS and Android but the iOS version is more advanced.

Is it Free?

Qlone is free to download and scan but exporting the 3D models, AR view with Animations and scanning in 4K resolution (iOS) are premium features that require an upgrade to premium.

How do I use Qlone?

Scanning real objects has never been easier. Print the included AR mat, place your object in the middle of the mat and let the Augmented Reality dome guide you through the scanning process. Scan the object from two different angles, and it will be auto merged for complete 3D results.

Where do I get the AR mat?

Print the mat directly from the app (iOS) or send it as an email attachment and print it out.

You can also find it here. For scanning larger objects, you can print it larger in a printing store.

Is the processing taking place in the cloud?

With Qlone, there is no waiting time, all processing is done real time on your phone in seconds.

In which 3D file formats can I export?

You can export models in a variety of formats for use in other 3D tools – OBJ, STL, FBX, GLB, USDZ, PLY, X3D. Send your unlocked OBJ models to other Qlone users and they can import them into the app.

Can I modify or clean the 3D model in the app?

With the integrated tools in the app you can optimize and modify your 3D model without needing to export them to other sophisticated software. You can blur texture imperfections, simplify the mesh to reduce the no. of polygons, smooth and erase parts of the mesh and much more.

To which platforms can I export and share my 3D models?

You can upload and share on Sketchfab, 3D print on i.materialise, Shapeways, create a Snapchat Lens Studio Project (iOS) or sell your models on CGTrader, all with a direct upload from the app. You can also share the models on iMessage, WhatsApp and many other social platforms.

The AR dome never appears, what could be wrong?

Make sure you printed the mat correctly - It should fully contain the whole pattern and include the marked white spaces around it. Also make sure it was printed on a non-glossy paper.
