Community member Phil Nolan shows how to 3D scan objects using freely available tools. He starts off by taking a series of photos of a rock, and then runs it through Visual SFM and CMVS to build a point cloud. Finally, MeshLab reconstructs the rock’s surface into a regular mesh. He even shares his original collection of photographs if you want to follow along.
Here’s the result of Phil’s tutorial on Sketchfab:
Awesome work Phil, thanks for sharing!
