A few results from Meshroom.

by Redrobes on 10-22-2018 at 01:05 PM
In my last entry I mentioned that Meshroom had been released. I had to borrow a friends machine with an nVidia card on it that would handle CUDA as the program will not run without it. The computations required to generate the 3D mesh from the photos are quite intense and with many photos it takes a lot of time. CUDA is the graphics card support which allows the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to handle that complex graphics based math instead of the normal CPU. Since GPUs are custom built for this

Continuing with the photogrammetery thing...

Time marches on and developers have been busy. There are some new photogrammetry apps out there and one looks particularly good.

Released (recently) in Aug 2018 a project my the name of Meshroom has frozen a build for release for both Windows and Linux.

If you head over to AliceVision website there are some links there to download the software as prebuilt binaries:

Denser point clouds for better resolution 3D mapping.

by Redrobes on 10-31-2016 at 10:13 AM
Its been a while since I updated my blog about 3D mapping terrain.

As predicted, those tools to make denser point clouds have appeared in open tools:

OpenSFM is a really good tool. Even before this update I have used it to generate quite dense point clouds of 3D models so this new development sounds interesting indeed.

Dont miss the link in there for OpenDroneMap.

Stitching points into a model using MeshLab

by Redrobes on 02-04-2011 at 10:20 AM
Ok so we have the points, lets make a mesh - a polygon model of the building. In MeshLab clean up some of the stray points. You can do that by selecting points and deleting them. The selection icon is the one with three dots and the cursor arrow. Click that and drag out a box over some points and they turn red to show they are selected. The delete is on the far right which is the three dots and a triangle with a big X through it.

Once you have the vertices for the building without

by Redrobes on 12-06-2010 at 05:12 PM
So you have run the app and got the model out and extracted the text file of points which should look like this...





and this...
