Turn Photos Into 3D Models With Autodesk 123D Catch [Currently Only Windows] With the 3D printing revolution officially under way, the problem remains of how to get actually get a digitized 3D representation of something. You could start from scratch, using something like Google Sketchup, but I’d be lying if I told you it’s easy to create anything reasonably complex. Instead, it would be great if you could just take some pictures of a real life object, then somehow auto-magically transform that into a 3D model. Magic – meet reality – in the form of Autodesk 123D Catch Introduction 123D Catch is just one of a range of free software from the CAD and modelling powerhouse Autodesk, and though I may take a look at the other apps at a later date, today we will be looking specifically at just 123D Catch. The app takes a selection of photos of an object – the more the better – finds identical points and dinstinguishing features between them, and merges them all together to create a fairly accurate, realistically textured, manipulable 3D object.

CAD Clinic: AutoCAD Commands in VB .NET 15 Jun, 2005By: Mike TuersleyCadalyst Use .NET Editors to Create Simple AutoCAD commands Welcome back! This month we're going to create two simple AutoCAD commands in Visual Basic .Net. If you have not already read last month's column discussing .NET editors, please do so before continuing with this article. For this article, we will recreate the classic "Hello World" example and throw the text into AutoCAD's command line and into an MText object. To begin, open SharpDevelop and create a new combine -- a combine is equivalent to a new project in Microsoft Visual Basic. Now add the references to the project just like with Visual Basic 6 or VBA. Now you should have the code window open for SharpDevelop. Imports System Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices Imports Autodesk.AutoCAD.Runtime Imports Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices Imports acadApp = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application Public Class HelloWorld Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.DocumentManager. • In .NET code:

Still Images: 2D to 3D using After Effects or Apple Motion Make your still images more dynamic by giving them dimension! Discover how to create a 2D to 3D photo effect, adding motion and depth to still images. Here’s the type of effect you’ll learn to create: Each of the video tutorials below explains a similar way of creating this 2D to 3D photo effect by using industry standard photo and video editing tools – Adobe Photoshop and either After Effects or Apple Motion. The last video is a demo for a commercial Adobe After Effects script that simplifies the process of animating 2D layers in a simulated 3D space. 2D to 3D / Photoshop to Motion Video producer Jonthan Fowler gives step-by-step instructions for breaking apart your 2D image in Photoshop and then bringing it into the Apple Motion compositng/motion graphics app. 2D to 3D / Photoshop to After Effects Many post production professionals recognize Andrew Kramer as a leading After Effects guru and founder of pt_MultiPlane plugin for After Effects

VB.NET para AutoCAD. Primeros pasos (I) A estas alturas no entraremos a mencionar las excelencias de AutoCAD, el programa de CAD más extendido a nivel mundial, ni el formato DWG, estándar de facto en la industria del CAD. Existen muchos medios para programar sobre AutoCAD: AutoLisp, VBA (Macros para AutoCAD), ARX (C++ para AutoCAD) y .NET, la más reciente incorporación al sistema y, por qué no decirlo, la más prometedora para los desarrolladores dado que incorpora toda la potencia de .NET y toda la potencia de AutoCAD en un solo entorno. ¿Qué clase de objeto debemos crear para desarrollar sobre AutoCAD? Una biblioteca de clases. Dentro de ella ya podrá crear toda clase de objetos .NET (WinForms, clases, controles, ...). ¿Necesita estar instalado AutoCAD en mi equipo? Por supuesto que si. ¿Qué framework o versión de Visual Studio debe utilizar? Obtendrá esta información en la web de Autodesk o en los foros de la comunidad de desarrolladores. Pasos a seguir: Cree un proyecto nuevo en Visual Studio del tipo Biblioteca de Clases.

Technology Implementation in Schools: Key Factors to Consider New technologies have changed teaching and learning in a number of ways—from graphing calculators to online lesson plans to virtual field trips and simulated dissections, educational technologies can help students access content in new and often exciting ways. In fact, one would be hard pressed to find a single school that doesn’t have access to some kind of educational technology. According to surveys, as many as 95% of schools are connected to the Internet; even at the level of the individual classroom, connection is nearly as universal—close to 75% of classrooms in the United States have Internet access (CEO Forum, 2000). Despite this nearly ubiquitous access to computer technology, however, there is a significant gap between the presence of technology and its usage in the classroom. While some type of technology is present in nearly every classroom in the country, it is rarely used to its fullest potential (Royer, 2002). Professional Development Leadership Resources and Support
