What do you use to capture all those great 3D scans you’ve been publishing? For this challenge we’re putting the focus on our process and capturing a piece of equipment – tripods, turntables, cameras, laser scanners, etc. – that we use to bring our models to life.
But how will you capture a piece of your equipment when you need it to make the model? Therein lies the challenge! Time for some creative 3D capturing.
UPDATE: Winner – Rigsters Photogrammetry Rig by Rigsters
