Maker Night | Introduction to Photogrammetry – Learn to Scan 3D Objects

June 21, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free
Learn to scan objects and create 3D objects using Meshroom, ScanAmaze, or PhotoCatch

Calling all Georgian College students!

We are hosting another Maker Night on campus, we will learn to 3D scan! Using our cellphones we will take an array of photos to upload to Meshroom, ScanAmaze, or PhotoCatch.

Photogrammetry is a scanning process to create a 3D object from a series of images. In this process, pictures are taken from all angles of the object being scanned. The images are then fed into a computer program that analyses the images, identifies matching points in the images, and creates a 3D model from the images. The resulting model can often be exported in a variety of formats suitable for social media, game environments, and simulations.

The objects to be scanned can be as small as a bug, or as large as a building.

This workshop requires no prior programming experience.

Things to bring:

You will need to bring your own laptop to this event with an NVIDIA card (most have this)

Camera/cell phone camera

Cable for camera/cell phone to transfer pictures to a computer

Item to scan – something not shiny and not transparent.

You will also need access to your email to verify new free account on ScanAMaze
