I’ve drawn in 3D using AutoCAD, Sketchup and a couple of other minor applications for years. I have seen the rise of a number of applications and technologies in the recent past designed to generate 3D models from Photographs.
I am the proud owner of a new AnyCubic 3D printer (yet to be tested). I am looking for the right model for my first print. It’s like burning my first CD all over again. The technology presented here seems to only generate a thin skin model with a low poly count (learning that is important). I am still trying to wrap my mind around what different model types are appropriate for and can they be converted to something appropriate for a 3D print.
I would like to create car models from photos and am looking for the most effective way to do that. I want to print them at 1:160. I know that some software has issues with glass especially windshields. Could someone please direct me to a tutorial or give me an explanation of what the best model type would be to print at small scale (1:160) or the best tools to generate car models from photos please.
BTW I am impressed with a lot of the car models I’ve seen here. The wrecked cars would be appropriate for a wrecking yard I want to model and this is the first site that has a 1966 Chrysler. I would especially like to print off the Chrysler!
