DETAILED TUTORIAL: http://dekko.co/dekkoscan

1. PICK A GOOD OBJECT TO SCAN
Simple shapes and pictures give the best results.

2. SET THE GROUND
Use a magazine cover, point at it, hit "FIND GOOD SCENE" button and slide to the right. If it comes back to the left, try from closer or with better light.

3. SCAN
Move your hands to scan around, you will see small squares appear. If they turn red, move back to the start point. The longer you scan the more accurate the reconstruction is.

4. PREVIEW
Click the purple "INGAME VIEW" button to preview what the object will look like in Minecraft. Hit the "REFRESH" button for incremental updates.

5. EXPORT
Click EXPORT TO MINECRAFT to e-mail a zipped minecraft save file that you can uncompress into an existing superflat game, or open with third party tools like MCEdit.
The .schematic file can also be used in MCEdit and WorldEdit.

Dekko's comments:


Our newest app, DekkoScan, lets you scan real world objects with your iOS device and port them into Minecraft. Crazy, huh? I know! The tech is pretty tricky, but we already built a 3D scanning engine for our TableTop Speed game and thought it would be fun to see what else we could do with it.

We'd love to hear your thoughts. We are launching the app at $1.99 while we collect feedback from early users, then we'll be going back up to the normal $3.99 once we've finished the major upgrades. We've posted a full tutorial here and Anthony, the developer, will be answering questions on Reddit today.
