Calibrate your device for SketchCam on a Android device

Updated by Heather Jones

Before you can use SketchCam with your Android device, you need to calibrate it. For best results, calibrate your device before using SketchCam for the first time and then about once a week afterwards.

  1. Stand a few feet away from a wall and face it so that you can easily see both corners. Mark your place, and,using a tape measure, measure the floor from where you are standing to the base of the wall directly in front of you.
  2. In SketchCam, tap the settings wheel ().
  3. In the Calibrate window that appears, enter the dimensions from Step 1 in one of the following formats: 7'3", 87", or 7 3.
  4. Tap DONE.
  5. Standing in the same place where you took measurements, aim the device so the dotted circle in the center of the screen is at the base of the wall in front of you, and then tap the Mark Corner button () to finish calibrating the device.
