|PhotoModeler helps you create accurate, high-quality 3D measurements, models and orthoimagery from photographs using your own camera.
PhotoModeler is the base product. PhotoModeler Scanner contains all the capabilities of PhotoModeler, and adds scanning and dense surface modeling . PhotoModeler Motion contains all the capabilites of both products, and adds measuring and modeling over time. See the chart on the product overview page for a quick comparison of the products.
PhotoModeler, as the base product, is a powerful and affordable tool to build accurate models and get measurements from your photos. Use PhotoModeler to build:
- CAD-like models of a wide variety of objects and scenes.
- Models using points, lines, edges, surfaces (photo textured or shaded) and other entities.
- Automated projects, using the included target detection features.
PhotoModeler is applicable in a wide variety of fields such as Architecture, Engineering, Film/Graphics, Forensics and Surveying.
+ What is it used for
Some example applications are:
- Architecture and Preservation: obtain a dense surface cloud of an old stone wall or structure; capture the detail in a building facade.
- Archeological digs: get a dense cloud of points of stratified dig surfaces; non-contact scans of artifacts.
- Museum / curatorial: non-contact surface scans of bas-reliefs, masks, and some statues.
- Forensics: 3D scans of bite marks; 3d surface scans of tire marks and foot imprints in soil and wet sand.
- Mining, Excavation and Geotechnical: surface models of open pit mine faces, cliffs, exposed rock characteristics; models of slag heaps and stockpiles; volcano monitoring.
- Civil Engineering: models of cuts and fills in road work; models, surfaces and measurements of stock piles; sand dune surveys for erosion monitoring.
- Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Measurement: surface shape of manufactured parts (using a projected random pattern); modeling deformation of fabrics and gossamer materials.
- Medicine: 3D scans of skin surface for body morphological measurements; point clouds and surfaces of a child’s back with scoliosis.
- Film and animation: produce highly accurate bump maps of real surfaces; scan sets and objects for modelling
