3D Object Reconstruction from Photosynth Point Clouds



Open source Software like MESHLAB and BLENDER are powerfull tools for mesh processing, rendering and animation. Access to Photosynth point clouds closes a gap in the working chain from recording to 3D object reconstruction. A digital camera delivers the range maps, MESHLAB does the mesh processing and with BLENDER's UV image editor the scene becomes a realistic look.
