Epic Games originally released RealityScan for iOS devices back in 2022. So far it has seen over 200,000 downloads and thousands of models created and uploaded to Sketchfab. Now that RealityScan is available for Android too, it puts this free-to-download photogrammetry application into the hands of almost anyone with a modern smartphone or tablet.

Sketchfab is a 3D modeling platform website. Consequently, its users can publish, share, discover, buy, and sell 3D, VR and AR content. Additionally, Sketchfab has a viewer that uses WebGL and WebXR technologies that enables its users to display 3D models on the web. These models can be viewed on any mobile browser, desktop browser or on a Virtual Reality headset.

Exporting your models from RealityScan to Sketchfab is free. The number of models you can upload to your Sketchfab account per month depends on your Sketchfab plan. However, new users are automatically be upgraded to Sketchfab Pro for free for one year on their first uploads.

New and improved

The latest release of this RealityScan also offers a streamlined user interface and more intuitive workflows. These are a few of the improvements:

  • Add and edit a name and description for the project. RealityScan can automatically synchronize this information with Sketchfab.
  • Directly open a preview of the final model as it will look in Sketchfab from within the Project Library, using RealityScan embedded Sketchfab viewer.
  • Find and delete unconnected images from the Project Library, and optionally add new ones to replace them.
  • New step-based workflow takes users  through the scanning process, and you can always back up through the steps if you need to make changes.


  • RealityScan is available now, free from the Google PlayStore. However it requires an Epic Games account in order to use it.

Please note that RealityScan for Android requires an Android smartphone or tablet, running Android 7 or above, that supports ARCore. Alternatively, if you are an iPhone user, then you require an iPhone or iPad running iOS 16 and later.
