BBQ - 3D Scan

Mission Summary

  • Goal:  Test photogrammetry from a smartphone
  • Tech: iPhone8s, Autodesk ReCap
  • Conditions: Midday and raining
  • Outcome: Smartphone camera can be a powerful tool for reality capture

We were down at the local park for an afternoon walk, when I went to test some simple photogrammetry methodology using my smartphone daughter decided she wanted to be part of the scan.







This (IMO) was a successful scan.
