20180403 - Photoscanned Rock

93 / 365

I think this probably counts as a diary shot.

I watched a tutorial about 3D photoscanning last night and decided to have a go. This involves taking lots of photographs of an object from every angle and then letting various clever bits of software like VisualSFM and MeshLab work out how they map in 3D space. I haven't quite nailed down how to gracefully handle the underside, but I'm pleased with how far I got with the first attempt.
The neighbour also thinks I'm mad - having watched me take about 70 shots of a rock in the driveway. ;)

All the software used for this was free.
