iPad pro is recommended if you choose to modify models on the iPad. If simply using the iPad for scanning, a smaller iPad can make scanning easier. More information in: What iPad should I buy?

Please check the Occipital website to make sure they have brackets to support your iPad.

iPad model number is required to order the correct Bracket (found on back of iPad).


Use small Philips screwdriver and 4 screws to attach Scanner to the bracket.

Important: the short screws are used for the Mark II scanner screws or you may damage the Mark II scanner. Do not use or overtighten the longer screws.

Mark II is Model ST02A. This will come with everything pictured below except the bracket. Bracket is sized for iPad and will be purchased separately.
