Turn 2D Images into 3D Objects with Monster Mash

This is kind of interesting. It's a free web based program that allows you to trace over a photo and turn it into a rough 3D object which you can then export and take into Blender to sculpt and refine. 

 

Here's the site: https://monstermash.zone/

And here's a tutorial:

That's actually pretty neat.  Not just for drafters but video game developers using blender and other stuff.

Autodesk used to have an app version of this for mobile devices where they would email you the 3d model with the photo colors overlayed as a texture file.

But you had to take like a hundred photos with the app for it to work.

 

Now if only we can get this to work for UAP's.  :P

Yeah, I remember that Autodesk app. It could actually create a fairly detailed model, but like you said, you had to take a hundred photos. This web program creates a pretty basic model, but it's a great way to rough out the form of the object really quickly and then take it into Blender to start fine tuning and detailing it. Or, if you just need a simple model to stick in the background, you don't really need to do anything more than what they show in the video. Quick and easy, and it's free, which is always nice. :)

for video games you could literally take photos of a fighter jet and model it in 3d with the software.  and include that in like a video game or what have you.

Alot of possibilities with the tech.

 

The tech is also really helpful for establishing asbuilt conditions for specific applications.

And you can then use the 3d model to design a project around.

 

There has previously been other software that could do this kind of thing using drones - to include terrain, vegetation, retaining walls, drainage ditches, etc...  All modeled in 3d with nothing but drone photography.

 

Also probably useful for large commercial applications like power plants and refineries to establish asbuilt conditions, then design around those systems to add piping, controls, etc.. as required to modernize.
