3D Software Object Modeler PRO


From 2D to 3D – 3DSOM Pro is the professional solution for automated 3D modeling of real world objects

3DSOM Pro is a powerful software tool for creating professional quality 3D content from still images. A wide range of objects can be modeled, including those with holes and ‘difficult’ organic shapes.

Using a conventional camera, photos of your object are taken on a printed mat (where practical) and from a number of viewpoints in front of a plain backdrop. The shape of the object is automatically extracted from each photo and this information is used to build a high quality 3D mesh in .obj format to be used in any 3D application.

3DSOM Pro’s hybrid approach combines the advantages of photogrammetry silhouette (profile) modelling and of structured light techniques. Using a standard digital camera and projector, 3DSOM Pro allows any user to create accurate, highly-detailed, fully textured 3D models from almost any real-world object – in a matter of minutes and without the need for skilled 3D experts.

Start with a single camera for a basic quick capture or enhance your results using a digital projector and two cameras. Finally, automate with a computer controlled turntable.

What can you do with 3DSOM Pro models?

  • Incorporate into 3D scenes – export your models in standard formats for importing into your existing 3D scenes.
  • Publish to the web – output true 3D content in a number of web formats including our Flash 3D and webGL formats to make your web pages come alive.
  • Create animations, flythroughs and movies – Use standard industry rendering software to render 3D models as movies for DVDs, web streaming, exhibitions and marketing material.
  • 3D print your model – 3DSOM meshes are closed and complete and ready to 3D print.
