Lion

During the Christmas holidays I decided to try out Autodesk’s 123D Catch. The program allows to generate a 3D model (triangular mesh) of an object. All that’s needed are 40-50 photos of the object taken from different sides. The program works best for textured objects.

I tested it immediately on one of the beautiful marble lions of the Modena Cathedral.

The result is VERY cool: check it out by clicking one of the images below. The link opens a 3D .pdf file that can be viewed with Adobe Reader; to rotate the model click the page with the left mouse button and move the pointer.

Unfortunately the original idea for the Buridda “Minimo” work did not work out. We the chose to display some photos we shot during a trip to Japan and China last year. Here’s a preview
