Amazing New PhotoModeler Examples

Posted on Friday, April 8th, 2011

Our customers have shown us some very interesting projects recently. Some great PhotoModeler Examples.  First, we have a forensic application which is also an illustration of performing DSM scanning on a very small object using macro photography. One of the advantages of photo-based 3D scanning is its size independence. This example is a perfect illustration of that. The object is the end of a bullet cartridge and is less than a cm across. See full description at bottom of the Crime Example page.  Second, we have an interesting application in hydrology and geomorphology. This is scan of a stream bed simulation table.

Posted on Monday, October 4th, 2010

An amazing new feature was added to the PhotoModeler 2010 beta on Friday. The feature is called SmartMatch. SmartMatch brings automation to create 3d data from every-day images. SmartMatch searches out natural feature points in images, matches them between photos, and generates 3d xyz points automatically. It is as simple as loading your photos and pressing “Go”.
