Autodesk’s Project PhotoFly Produces 3D Models from Photographs

Category: Siggraph
Autodesk Inc. announces the availability of Project Photofly, a technology preview of a Web service that allows users to easily create 3D models from photographs using the cloud. Project Photofly is currently available for free on Autodesk Labs.


The Autodesk Project Photofly technology preview enables architecture, design, media & entertainment, and manufacturing firms to easily create 3D models from a series of photographs.
Photofly breaks the barrier to entry to image-based modeling because of its automatic calibration process. The manual calibration of photographs enabled by other technologies is complex and requires a strong expertise to get a good result. Project Photofly utilizes an automatic calibration engine, called “Camera Factory”, which is made available as a web service through a Windows-based client called “Photo Scene Editor.” Customers connect to the Camera Factory through the Photo Scene Editor, and then use their favorite Autodesk 3D modeling software (AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk 3ds Max, etc.) to consume the data in DWG format and use Camera Factory to model on top of the images.

Project Photofly is available immediately to try at: http://labs.autodesk.com/technologies/photofly
