3D Scanning

Structured Light

Photogrammetry

AKA Structure from motion (SFM). With lots of photographs from different vantage points, and lots of really clever math, computers can infer 3D shapes and extract model data from 2D images.

Meshroom

Amazing set of tools and UI, really nice that it’s opensource!

Documentation is lagging behind, and really needs to be built from source (binary release as of Jan 2020 is ~year old.) Easy to break the graph of tasks, BUT makes the process visual!

Research Dump on Meshroom + Photogrammetry

4 posts were merged into an existing topic: Photogrammetry Scanner System for Small Scale Objects

Here is another web link to a tutorial for Photogrammetry for small objects from the University of Reading in the U.K. First of three YouTube installments. Good advice on setup for better results.

Thanks @Sockeye! Do you mind adding that to the main topic? (It should be a “wiki” post- which means anyone can edit it. In theory. Not well tested yet :wink:)

Julian:
I copied this over to the project page. Hope that is what you intended :).

That’s good too- and I’ve added it to the list of references above.
