This tutorial has been developed keeping in mind the beginners/non technical persons interested in making 3D digital models of artifacts, objects, buildings, excavation etc. from photos and want to share them online.
I have studied various popular commercial and free and open source software (FOSS) to find a robust, easy to learn, scalable model building environment. The comparison study is gong to be publisded soon. Based on my study, I have the most accurate 3D with easy and convenient workflow can be achieved through Regard3D – MeshLab – Sketchfab.
I am sharing this tutorial here as a .pdf file. Feel free to download and share with others.
Google unveils ARCore, its answer to Apple’s ARKit,, which allows augmented reality to hundreds of millions of Android phones, and no Tango required. From the demos on the web, it seems ARKit provides superior qualities. However, Apple is always within a closed eco-sytem; unreachable to many (like me ). However, I am really worried about these 2 devices recently announced from Lenevo and Asus. All their pain in vain now. So frastrating to the developers and manufacturers.

I have been wondering whether it is possible to develop 3D from Street view. Yes, some clever people already tried it and succeeded.

Writing a proposal is always tricky which needs to be very specific with a focused research question and a methodology. Only an ‘idea’ is not enough to achieve a goal. Found a fantastic writing from ‘Habibul Haque Khondker, Department of Sociology, NUS, Singapore’, few years back. Anyone has an idea and planning to write a proposal, may follow his guide.
