About This Class

We will be using our smartphones to 3D capture objects from our everyday life using the free 123D catch app. Generating 3D models from a series of photographs is a process called 3D photogrammetry. We will explore the simple and fun technique to 3D scan our favourite treasures and share it to the world.

This workshop introduces the exciting world of 3D scanning using affordable gadgets such as our smartphones and digital cameras. The 3D models can be used to prototype ideas in a 3D environment, and keeping a library of 3D models and textures. Common uses of 3D scanning include the medical and architecture industry, archiving of historical artefacts, including 3D scans of our favourite toys and home decorations, even our favourite pets!

We are very excited to see your 3D scans, and let's build an awesome 3D world together! I have made this newly launched premium class exclusively free for the first 25 students. Thank you all so much for supporting my workshops! Cheers Gabriel \m/
