|3DS| 3D Scanning Examples


This article features case studies of the photogrammetry process. They will show how the Benchmark (linked below) has been applied, the challenges the subject presented and the additional techniques that were applied to successfully capture the subject.

Sun Ribbon

Photogrammetry Case Study - Sun Ribbon.pdf
Abstract: The initial photogrammetry of this object was very noisy as photo alignment was not perfect. The main culprit was non-ideal visual features due to high reflectivity and the harsh sunlight combined with a generally flat and featureless surface of the object.
The initial pathing for this object could not capture all the necessary aspects to form a complete model.
Key Problems:
Benchmark Category
General Aspect
Subject-Specific Problem
Very thin
Visual Features
Lack of features
Smooth, shiny, dark object
Ease of Photography
Limited space
Harsh lighting - bad contrast
Additional Techniques Used:
  • Different Time of Day
  • Adjusted Pathing
  • Markers on Subject
