Creating a 3D sketch from a photo

Is it possible to use a photo, or multiple photos to create a 3D rendering of an object? In my case, I would like to have a 3D model of an Airstream trailer I am renovating, to include dimensions. Essentialy an architectural drawing to work with, but there are few straight lines and a lot of arcs. I have several photos from all angles and can import into uMake to trace, but creating a 3D drawing has me baffled.

Hi @jflatley,

Thank you for reaching out.

Are you referring to an automated process that converts photos to 3D models?

Thanks,

Automated would be great if it exist as an option, but I was thinking more along the lines of importing a photo, multiple photos from all angles actually, that could be traced to create an accurate 3D drawing.

Hi @jflatley,

Yes, that’s definitely something you can do in uMake. Here’s a video on how to insert a photo into uMake:

You can inset as many photos as you would like and position them in space (front view, side view, top view, etc.).

Let me know if that answers your question.

Thanks,
Evi
