This stone marker along the Grand View Trail in the Grand Canyon is located about 2.7 miles in close to the old copper mine. The miners made the Grand View trail in 1892 to carry their supplies in on donkeys and to carry out their riches. One of the signs said, when precious metals are found in the canyon, the ore is known to have a high percentage of the metal and as quickly as it is found, veins run out. This is why there are a lot of abandoned mines in the Grand Canyon.
This model’s workflow, I captured 4K video of the entire marker from all angles making sure to walk slowly. On the computer, I extracted stills from the video using Adobe After Effects. Once I had the stills, I edited them in Adobe Lightroom and created a geometry version of the photos and a texture version. I used RealityCapture to do the photogrammetry work along with the decimation. After a slight cleanup using Meshmixer, I added the brown sides in Blender and exported an OBJ to upload to Sketchfab. I hope that helps you!
