XXII International Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing Congress - Application Possibility of Smartphone as Payload for Photogrammetric UAV System Smartphone can not only be operated under 3G network environment anytime and any place but also cost less than the existing photogrammetric UAV since it provides high-resolution image, 3D location and attitude data on a real-time basis from a variety of built-in sensors. This study is aimed to assess the feasibility of smartphone as a payload for photogrammetric UAV system. Prior to such assessment, a smartphone-based photogrammetric UAV system application was developed, through which real-time image, location and attitude data was obtained using smartphone under both static and dynamic conditions. Subsequently the accuracy assessment on the location and attitude data obtained and sent by this system was conducted.
The first printer to automatically correct its geometry in all axes (UPDATE: NEW VIDEO) - Prusa Printers The Original Prusa I3 MK2 model introduced a handful of improvements over the I3 printer, most notably the full mesh bed auto leveling, zone heated print bed with a PEI print surface, and the integrated leadscrew Z axis. The full mesh bed auto leveling relies on an induction sensor mounted onto the print head, sensing its distance towards nine circular induction targets arranged on the new zone-heated print bed in a 3×3 regular grid pattern. While the automatic bed calibration makes the first layer print hassle free, it requires the new MK2 printer to be assembled with a higher accuracy than the previous I3 model. Even a sloppily built Original Prusa I3 MK1 printer prints the ubiquitous tree frogs wonderfully. However, as many builders have experienced, the Original Prusa I3 MK2 is less forgiving.
Match Photo: Matching models to photos Matching an existing 3D model to a photo's context Use the matching process to match an existing 3D model to a photo's context. For example, you might have a model of a house that contains an addition and want to place that within a photo to show the change.
OpenSCAD - About OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models. It is free software and available for Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X. Unlike most free software for creating 3D models (such as Blender) it does not focus on the artistic aspects of 3D modelling but instead on the CAD aspects. Thus it might be the application you are looking for when you are planning to create 3D models of machine parts but pretty sure is not what you are looking for when you are more interested in creating computer-animated movies.
List of CAx companies List of CAx companies and their software products. Software using computer-aided technologies (CAx) has been produced since the 1970s through to the present for a variety of computer platforms. This software may include applications for Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-aided engineering (CAE), Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and Product Data Management (PDM). The list is far from complete or representative as the CAD business landscape is very dynamic: almost every month new companies appear, old companies go out of business, companies split and merge.
Free photogrammetric digital reconstruction EDIT: I forgot to put this here: the post below is a author’s guest post by Peter Falkingham of the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Science, University of Manchester. Enjoy! This blog post coincides with my latest paper on open source photogrammetry software that appears in Palaeontologia Electronica yesterday. I want to briefly summarize the paper, but also to tell you about where the technology seems to be heading, and try and communicate some of my excitement.
10 Ways 3D Printing Supports the Blind People who are blind or partially-sighted are given greater support and accessibility thanks to 3D printing. A list of our favorite projects. As the name implies, 3D printing is technology with a tangible and tactile byproducts. They’re physical objects, designed to be held and touched, and perhaps even have a functional use. Systems, Inc Before describing the operation of the V-STARS system, a brief introduction to photogrammetry is provided for those who are unfamiliar with the technology. The fundamental principle used by photogrammetry is triangulation. By taking photographs from at least two different locations, so-called "lines of sight" can be developed from each camera to points on the object. These lines of sight (sometimes called rays owing to their optical nature) are mathematically intersected to produce the 3-dimensional coordinates of the points of interest. Triangulation is also the principle used by theodolites for coordinate measurement.
