Installation and set-up hardware¶
You will recieve a fully configured iPad with the QuantaCorp app installed.
The 3D sensor is already mounted on the bracket when you receive the fitting station. Below you can see how to mount the 3D sensor and bracket correclty on the iPad.
To attach the precision bracket with aluminium latch to your iPad, start by sliding the bracket plus structure sensor onto the top of your iPad, making sure that the aluminium latch is in its open position.
As soon as you have firmly seated on top of your iPad, and you have ensured that the hole in the bracket is centered around the iPad camera, close the latch by pressing down on it with your thumb.
Connect the supplied lightning cable by connecting it to your structure sensor first.
As shown in the above images, the wider end of the cable connects to your structure sensor, and the gold-colored pins should be facing up as you plug it into the structure sensor. Connect the other end of the cable (with the Apple lightning connector) into your iPad.
Your structure sensor is now connected to your iPad!
Installation and login app¶
The QuantaCorp app is available via the Apple App Store.
To be able to connect to the QuantaCorp platform, an internet connection is required. After installation you can use your username and password to login.
By default during the provisioning of your account, an empty project is created for you. You can immediatly start with adding Size Passports.

Select a project¶
To change the current project, click the name of the current project in the top left corner. The next view will show the available projects. To start scanning for a specific project click the start scanning button. It is not possible to manage projects within the mobile app. This needs to be done through the portal
Managing Size Passports¶

The alias is a required identifier within the Customer company. It has no format restrictions but being unique.

Taking a perfect scan with ease¶
The user interface¶
The scanning interface contains the following components
This overlay will guide you to correctly position the person you want to scan.
When you have a Structure Sensor connected you can use this button for enhanced scanning. The requirements for background contrast and lighting are less strict.
To handles privacy issues, this button will automatically blur a persons face.
Takes a scan, a switches to the next view. A scan consists of two views, front and side. You will need this button in both views. When the button is gray you cannot take a scan due to an unmet requirement like:
|[x]||(1, 2) only with 3D enabled|
Requirements of a good scan¶
Controlling the environment¶
- Empty floor, only floormat (optional). You can use the QuantaCorp floormat as a tool for this. See FAQ for more info
- Stand in front of a clear wall. Do not scan in corners or next to closets
Position of the tablet¶
Keep the iPad upright. It must make a 90° angle with the floor. Kneeling down or sitting on a chair makes this easier. As mentioned before an incorrect angle will disable the scan button.
The gray button will move within the red circle to indicate the incorrect angle. The gray button must be positioned in the center.
If the iPad is not in the correct position, a warning will pop up on the screen.
Pose of the person¶
The person you are scanning must fit the red overlay guide!
The person must stand in an A-pose. Standing upright with arms and legs spread. The distance between the tips of the feet is approximately 35cm (13,7 inch)
The person must stand upright looking to its right. Arms tight to the body and feet kept together.
- empty pockets (wallets, cellphones, keys, …)
- wear hair in a knot, so the neckline is not covered
- limit clothing to 1 layer, take of jackets and coats
- tuck your shirt into your trousers
- wear normal clothing, dungarees and wedding dresses are not supported
When all requirements are met, the button will turn green and you can take a scan.
One pager manual¶
Up to version 1.3.0 the app is depending on a continuous, perfect internet connection. This often seems not to be a feasibel requirement. Proper WiFi or cellular is not always available and frequently have questionalbe performance. In version 1.3.0 we consider the iPad as an occasionaly connected device. In this section we explain what the impact is of this change on your day to day scanning.
With good internet available¶
This scenario resembles best how the app used to work. All changes in the app are synced to the QuantaCorp Cloud as you work with it.
With poor internet¶
You will not notice this using the app. Syncing with the QuantaCorp Cloud will be slow or postponed. This means that the changes made in the app will not be reflected on the portal immediatl.
When ther is no internet available, it is still possible to handle the app. Adding passports, taking scans, … stay available. There is only one thing you need to take into account: to be able to use a project offlinem you first need the sync it at a location with a proper internet connection. Once synced, there are no limitations. To do this, there is a sync button on the project page.
