Extending the arduino photogrammetry setup to turn the turntable by an arbitrary amount, then trigger an android phone and a DSLR, then move the turntable again and repeat.
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 of cleaning up. I want to detail here some of the software I've come across... Continue Reading →
 - I later built on this post and extended the setup considerably here. Photogrammetry is awesome, and there’s a whole bunch of papers and software out there that mean you can do it for free. But taking 100’s of photos can be a pain. I’ve been eyeing up ways of automating this for a... Continue Reading →
Photogrammetry testing: Agisoft Metashape. Affordable and good, there's a reason this is the go-to software.
Photogrammetry Testing: Reality Capture [Disclosure: I asked Capturing Reality for a temporary license to access the full version so I could test it and export models, they kindly agreed and gave me a 1 month license. This in no way affects my review] Ok, let’s get this out of the way – Reality Capture is... Continue Reading →
This is something of a pre-series post, explaining that over the coming weeks I'll be reviewing commercial photogrammetry software.
I get a lot of contacts asking what's wrong with their software, and usually the answer is that the photos don't have good overlap, or differing backgrounds. Sometimes I get directly asked how to take the photos, and certainly my students carrying it out for the first time need to be shown how to take... Continue Reading →
