The power of Photogrammetry is quite amazing. The ability to accurately create an object from a series of photos never fails to amaze me. I take you on a basic journey into the dark art of scanning an object to create some solid 3D data that you can then use your favorite CAD application.

I cover how to prep the object you want to scan, mount it properly, set up you basic lighting, and the basic concept of your camera set up. Following some simple steps should yield decent, usable results.
