It may seem like science fiction, but the ability to create a 3D solid model from a series of photographs is now possible-and it's actually easier to do than you might think. Join us as we walk through and explore all the steps necessary for this new amazing workflow. We'll start at the beginning with the initial photo scan of an object utilizing ReCap software, and then we'll clean up the scan with ReMake software. The clean scan goes over to Fusion 360 software for conversion, and finally into Inventor software to complete the workflow. After we discuss each step in detail, we'll look at the incredible potential of this photo-to-solid workflow.
- Explore the steps necessary to generate a quality photo scan utilizing ReCap360
- Discover methods of cleaning up the scan with Autodesk ReMake
- Learn how to convert a mesh to a solid model with Fusion 360
- Discuss the potential capabilities of the photo-to-solid workflow
