I realize I haven’t posted much of my WIP. I’m still working on the scanner and I’m familiarizing myself the some new software. Things are chugging along in the background at least. This whole process reminds me a lot of the early days of Photoshop, before layers, when you were pushing a pixels around a giant cathode-ray cancer tube.
3D scanning has been occupying my thoughts. I’m desperate to get to the next level, whatever that may be, of my work. Getting an accurate, detailed, photogrammetric scan of my subjects is the first step. I’m hitting the wall of my tiny kidney bean-like brain though… and my wallet, seriously… this this is getting expensive.
Still, the work goes on and I’ve made many prototypes of lighting rigs (lighting is my main enemy at this point). The necessary components of a good photogrammetric scan is control of the depth of field and maintaining focus in indirect light. There’s been some success though, I’ve included a few small scale test scans below, but you can see more on my Sketchfab site:
