Scandy, a New Orleans-based provider of software that allows users to capture, share, and print 3D content from mobile devices, raised a $1m seed funding.
The round was led by Callais Capital with angel investors from Louisiana, Texas and Maryland.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop the application for the upcoming launch of the first phones equipped with embedded depth sensors and the Google Project Tango software.
Led by Charles Carriere, CEO and co-founder, Scandy recently launched its Scandy Sphere app which allows users to create 360-degree panoramas and order full-color 3D printed Scandy Spheres. The app is in the App Store for iOS and the Android app will be in the Google Play store by the end of April.
The company will be launching its Scandy Project Tango app in the fall, which will allow users to create, edit, and share 3D scans from phones equipped with depth sensors, and order full-color 3D prints of the scans. It is also in discussions with sensor companies, phone manufacturers, and potential software and content partners.
