Modelling shiny surfaces in Neitra 3D Pro

With the launch of beta version(v0.00 x64), there were lot of challenges in front of us. One major challenge was how to deal with texture-less/plain surfaces.

Photogrammetry generally finds it difficult to match mono-colored surfaces. In other words, it is difficult to extract consistent information from such surfaces.

In the below video we experimented with a shiny, texture-less cup. The first half of the video demonstrates distortion on the surface of 3D reconstruction of the original cup. To get a better reconstruction of the cup, texture was required which can make calibration easier for the software. In order to generate more details, we came up with an idea to mark the surface of cup with a white board marker (which can be easily cleaned from surface later on ). This created sufficient texture on the object which was consistent enough to generate an accurate surface. You can see the difference in below video.

Back in Time: An Odyssey with Neitra 3D Pro

During the hot and humid summers of Delhi, we saw a black and white article in the middle of a daily newspaper about Archaeological Survey of India’s latest exhibition in the capital city.

Our team got excited. We packed our camera bags and started our trip to the museum. Our goal was to digitally capture and preserve the legacy.

After visiting the museum, we were thrilled by its shear magnificence.

We took permission for photography and scattered around the place. For next four – five hours, we were capturing all we could. People kept staring at us – some suspiciously, some interestingly. We enjoyed them and continued to jump around.

In the end, totally exhausted, we were hoping that these image sets will be successfully converted to their digital replica. We took ice creams, chilled ourselves and happily came back.

Our next aim was to feed them to Neitra and see how she processes them. To our surprise, she converted nearly all datasets taken from SLR(Nikon D60), mobile camera(Samsung S2) and some with a Samsung digicam. We were proud and delighted.
