photogrammetry vs 3d scanning

Morris Hubbert

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Looking for advice from people experienced in 3D scanning and photogrammetry. I'm engaged in 3D modeling of
historical miniatures and 3d printing of small figurines about a year or so. For 3d scanning I usually use
low-budget 3d sensors (tried Kinect, Intel RealSense and Asus Xtion), also used different software to
improve the quality of the obtained 3d models (Skanect, Artec Studio and Faro software). The results
are satisfying, but I want to get the best possible quality and accuracy. I've heard that by means of
photogrammetry and of a budget camera you can get better results than using cheap 3D sensors. Is that 
so? Which cameras and software are best for this?

Best regards.

I'm very interested in seeing examples of the 3D models you've been able to make with this setup.


I ALMOST took them seriously in replying, until I saw your response.

How long did it take for you to find a 3d rendered picture of a can of spam??? ???
