3D Scanning Feasibility


(Royherma) #1

What is the process of scanning items like this?

Can it be with an iPhone and an app like Trnio? Is there any special hardware needed? Would love to know how 3d scanning and turning into a 3d model works.

hi @royherma - the model description has a note about the camera and software used to create this:

Captured with iPhone + Recap360

The general technique of making 3D from digital photos is called photogrammetry, there are lots of apps (Trnio, Scann3D, Qlone) and desktop software (Agisoft PhotoScan, RealityCapture, ReCap, 3DF Zephyr, Pix4d, ContextCapture) that you can use. Some are free, some paid.

The first step is to take lots of photos of your subject (50 - 100+) from lots of different angles.

There are lots of tutorials and how-tos on the Skecthfab Blog too:
