3D models easily with your webcam

The Cambridge University Engineering Department developed ProForma.

ProFORMA (which stands for ‘Probabilistic Feature-based On-line Rapid Model Acquisition’) is some cool system that turns any ordinary webcam into a powerful 3D scanning tool.

The 3D models are constructed on the spot while you slowly rotate the objects.

As the user rotates the object in front of a stationary camera, a partial model is reconstructed and displayed to the user to assist view planning. The model is also used by the system to robustly track the pose of the object. Models are rapidly produced through a Delaunay tetrahedralisation of points obtained from on-line structure from motion estimation, followed by a probabilistic tetrahedron carving step to obtain a textured surface mesh of the object.


Pretty cool I say – check out the video

    another great use for the webcam!

  2. I would suggest doing content marketing, let me explainYou can get a video professionally created for around $47.00 97.00 (30-60 seconds) showing your quality desk drawer slide. You can even prove how easy it is to destruct your competitors and blast it around over 100 internet video sites for as little as $5.00 per site to be done manualy!You can get keyword research done for you professionally, identifying the keyword phrases that will get you a decent amount of search volum, yes with lower competing pages. Thank you for this article! I’ve just found a decisively amazing news blog about money Try it!

    Great dear. I would like to create a demo on how to make 3D models on the computer. Is there software available that will allow me to record what I do on another computer program?
