Description

Description

This class will cover the several methods for capturing real-world objects—from the very small to the very large—using laser scanning, photogrammetry, and a few other methods. The technology for capturing and printing the 3D geometry and textures from an existing object often sounds more like science fiction than reality. However, it is real, and I will show you in easy bite-sized pieces how you can do it so you can leave the class with a good understanding and are ready to replicate an object the Star Trek way.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Project Manager/Engineer, End User, Anyone who needs a good understanding of the several reality capture technologies: architects who want to capture existing buildings, as well industrial designers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, movie gaming industry professionals, and almost everyone else who can benefit from reality capture
