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.

Marble lion - Leone stiloforo

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.
