Scanning Existing Conditions with the Canvas App
Kevin Stephens started programming on an Apple II+ at the age of four, which established his love of technology. After earning his degree in computer science at the University of California, San Diego, Kevin spent time as a software engineer at Apple before joining Google in its early days. There, he worked on a variety of products and helped build Google’s presence internationally. He later co-founded and led Blink, the first consumer ephemeral text messaging app, which was acquired by Yahoo. Kevin subsequently led product teams at GoToMeeting and Thumbtack before joining Occipital as CEO.
At Occipital, Kevin leads its two business units: Canvas, a mobile app that saves home improvement professionals days of work on every project by turning a simple iPhone or iPad scan into accurate measurements through its Scan To CAD service, and Structure, which brings the power of mobile 3D scanning to medical practices. Kevin also serves as an angel investor and advisor to multiple early-stage startups. He lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two daughters.

I have an Occipital camera / sensor which I’ve had a few years and had great success with it, I’ve tried to use it again recently and I think it could be an OS compatibility issue. I am using it with my iPad Pro which has worked previously, its now running iPadOS 15.2.1
When I launch the Scanner software and press Scan is completes instantly, I can’t rotate around the subject to scan an object before it completes.
The forums on https://forums.structure.io are now read only and there doesn’t seem to be any way of contacting support.
