I keep looking around for 3D scanning software but can't find anything I like. Any suggestions? I'm more looking for a free app so I can use my android phone, but am open to desktop based solutions too.

    $\begingroup$ You are going to get a lot of different answers/opinions with that kind of question. I would suggest narrowing it down with more specific information that you are needing/wanting. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This could be good as a community wiki, because the answers change over time. Also tagged as [canonical] so future duplicates can be closed and aimed at this "authorative" question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Criggie - tell us more about this [canonical] tag (do you have a link?)... we don't have one yet, although we do have a [knowledge-base] tag, is that the same thing? I thought that there was a meta post about our knowledge base, but I can't find it. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In case this question does get closed for being a request for software recommendation, there is actually (rather ironically) a software recommendations site on Stack Exchange, where presumably they only accept shopping type questions... $\endgroup$

1. Meshroom

https://alicevision.org/

Meshroom can take any number of overlapping photographs and turn them into a 3D model. Those pictures can be taken from any phone, or even a drone. For best results, you will need to know the make/model and sensor size of the camera.

Works on Windows/Linux and requires a CUDA compatible video card

2. ADOP

https://github.com/darglein/ADOP

ADOP is a neural network similar to Meshroom that can combine photos into a 3D model, however, it has a very impressive ability to generate highly accurate data from just a few pictures. It also provides a virtual reality viewer.

Works on Linux/Windows. Does require some familiarity compiling code

I personally use SCANN3D. It is available on Android but I don't know if it is for desktop too.
