New

Android Support

3D Scan is now supported on Android 9.0 (or higher) devices. Install the Skydio 2 Enterprise App for Android and ensure you have been provisioned with your Autonomy Enterprise Foundation (AEF)™ software add-on and 3D Scan™ software add-on.

3D Scan on Skydio X2

In addition to Android support, 3D Scan is now available on all Skydio X2 variants. Contact a Skydio Sales Representative to purchase the 3D Scan software add-on.

Adjustable Z Gimbal Pitch

By default, the gimbal angle during a Z Contour Slice scan pass is now set to 15 degrees below the horizon. This downward-facing image capture can lead to better reconstructions for certain structures like cell towers. Adjust your Z Slice gimbal pitch as-needed.

Enhancements

Adjustable Exploration Speed

Before the Explore phase begins, you now have the option to decrease the speed at which Skydio 2 or Skydio X2 performs this initial inspection. Adjust the flight speed from 1.1 mph - 5.6 mph (0.5 m/s - 2.5 m/s). The Explore phase should be a small fraction of the total scan time.

DNG Image Capture

DNG photos may now be captured when Stop for Photo is enabled. Access these files post-flight by connecting your drone or the Media Card to a laptop or computer.

Floor and Ceiling

You no longer need to select "Move Floor" or "Move Ceiling" to update the current placement of these bounds. Fly to the desired location and the Floor/Ceiling will move with your drone as it flies. Additionally, you will notice a gray AR plane that denotes the launch height, making it easier for you to visualize where to set the Floor/Ceiling.

Draggable Pillar Placement

In addition to flying to place pillars, you may now easily drag them to encompass the structure you wish to scan. By default, the pillar is attached to the drone and will move as you fly. Enable dragging by holding on the screen to select the active pillar. You may continue to set pillars by dragging or select "Attach" to reconnect the pillar to the drone.
