Photogrammerty has been with us for as long as we’ve had cameras. Autodesk has taken it to its logical next step with Project Photofly. Using a standard point and shoot camera you can take a series of photos of an object, upload them to the cloud, and get a detailed 3D model back that can be manipulated with standard design software. There is other photogrammerty software out there, but this seems to be the most approachable, and the results seem to be of higher quality. You can even try it out for yourself. [Thanks, Daniel!]

    It’d be nice if you indicated when something is Windows only, at least in the summary if not the subject line. It’s really annoying to click through three links only to find out then.

    I know it’s just the commercial promoted lingo, but somehow “collect something, upload it to the cloud, and get sent back goodness” seems black-box anti-Maker magic somehow.

  7. Everything is for windows unless stated :) I mentioned this before on the previous hemi scanner comment. I have tested it and it is very impressive. Ok Autodesk can turn it off at any time, but for now its free

    I’ve found Areoscan to work the best of all of the the photogrammetry software/services I’ve tried.

  9. Does this mean if you put someone in a cylinder room with cameras all around, you can get a fully body image that can then be printed on a 3D printer?
