Jeff is reclaiming his unique digital identity with a sense of clarity.

dsculptor

imodeler template

Imodeler – http://www.imodeller.com/en/ is a progam that uses photogrammetry to build a 3d model out of a series of digital photos.

Dsculptor is another program that does this too.

I have an old copy of the version 1 of Dsculptor that I got off of a magazine cd a long time ago, and have a copy of Imodeler that I purchased a few years back…

Up until now, I’ve know it was easy to blow up the D-sculptor template since the version 1 template was basically a sqaure that was bisected a couple of times, but I had lots of problems trying to figure out how to blow up the imodeler template.

Well, now that’s no longer the case. I have been emailing the developer of Imodeler, and they gave me the dimensions. Since it’s simply a “list” it should be ok to post here as far as copyright/trademark stuff goes. Also, they should be thanking me since their site does not list these dimensions exactly outright, so it’s hard for me and a lot of others to blow this thing up to get models of cars, people, etc. up til now…

Here’s the dimensions for the template according to the email (part of the reason I’m posting this out here instead of just keeping the email is that the email may get deleted on accident someday?…)

The points are all 1 “unit” wide and at the following positions (in the same units – be it cm or inches):
23, 1
26, 1
26, 4

23, 18
26, 18
26, 15
26, 12

1, 18
4, 18
7, 18
1, 15
1, 12

1, 4
1, 1
4, 1
7, 1

First number is along the axis pointing towards right, second up.

We had people scanning forklifts with this pattern, so bigger objects are definitely possible.

Have a good time trying to build that template! I’m so glad that this info is out here now. It would have been so very handy many years ago when I first got in to this stuff..

Long List of 3d and 2d editing software

This space will is reserved for a list of 3d and 2d editing software that I’ll drop in here in the near future, and/or build over time. I don’t have time to list it all right now, but am putting this here as a sort of reminder to myself to come back here later and add more. There’s tons of great 3d and 2d freeware and shareware out there as well as higher end stuff. I’ve played around with quite a bit of it and will post my comments on each one I have some experience with here.

Also add more like it.. other lists have been in various forums before.. but forums disappear over time. Blogs can too, but not as easily all the time.
