PhotoModeler Scanner provides the tools for you to create accurate, high quality 3D models and measurements from photographs. The process is called photo-based 3d scanning.
PhotoModeler Scanner is a 3d scanner that provides results similar to a 3d laser scanner. This 3d scanning process produces a dense point cloud from photographs of textured surfaces of virtually any size. To compare PhotoModeler Scanner and other 3d scanning technologies read our white paper: 'A New Way to 3D Scan.'
The PhotoModeler Scanner software has all the capabilities of the base PhotoModeler product plus the capability to do Dense Surface Modeling (DSM), 3d scanning and SmartMatch.
Dense Surface Modeling is used in any application where a large number of 3D points are needed. The surfaces being modeled need a natural or random texture (or that texture can be applied or projected). Most applications where a 3d laser scanner works, DSM will work also.
