The best free software for editing and cleaning (decimating and retopologizing) meshes and 3D data [2020]

Working with photogrammetry, laser scanning, and all the other techniques I dabble with/intimately rely on, I generate a lot of 3D data. For the most part that data is usually very high resolution, and often quite noisy and in need … Continue reading The best free software for editing and cleaning (decimating and retopologizing) meshes and 3D data [2020]

The importance of 3D for tracks -or- how big is your footprint really!

Here’s the original post, and links to all posts I have previously outlined my goal of testing multiple photogrammetry solutions on a single dataset, and reporting times and results. I’m using a dataset based on photographs of this Styracosaurus model … Continue reading Photogrammetry Testing 4: OpenMVG and MVE (+TexRecon)
