View Full Version : 3dsee: Software Converts 2D Images To 3D

The program first calculates the Structure-From-Motion for the sequence of uploaded images. This includes a self-calibration of the camera's internal properties such as the focal length.

If this first stage is completed successfully then a dense 3D reconstruction (using a novel GPU-accelerated algorithm) is made of the scene. The output displayed in the '3D Interpretation' viewer is of a very low-quality and textured from just one of the images (to aid download speeds and portability). However, this is generated from a much higher quality textured polygon model. More high-quality outputs will be available in the short-term.

Site does not work. Will not let you sign up just gets your email info. Beware.

By uploading a set of images to our server we will automatically reconstruct a photo-realistic 3D model for you, returning it as a greyscale bump-map.


i read this on the front of the site, so is it that they convert the image to a model for you. i was under the impression that its a program that you install and run yourself.

very interesting. i hope they provide a demo version :)

ummm.. I don't really get it. Nothing they are turning out that is impressive.

doesnt crazybump already do this?! Or does this thing work better?

Same here.
What about all that missing information?

Could be useful for making displacement/Normal maps for your texture maps? I've hand made loads of them and it's tedious.

Same here. I mean making 3D models from photos isn't exactly cutting edge technology, so I am curious how this differs (besides their claim in using the GPU).

I saw this posted on another site like a week ago, and it seems that people are as confused about them now as they were before. Has anyone gotten it to work? And with CYARTIST's post, I am a little hesitant to register.

xyzRGB has had this service for a little while... I worked at Eyetronics as a modeling supervisor and I have to say xyzRGB's tech is AMAZING.

I've gotten a quote and they're asking for under $200 per extraction and unlike 3dsee, the results are amazing...

I wish I could post some of the images Helmut sent me but trust me, look into it.
