Take Three Snapshots - A Tool for Fast Freehand Acquisition of 3D Objects
We introduce a tool which allows an untrained user to take three images of an object freehand with a simple consumer camera. From these images a 3d model of the visible parts of the object is reconstructed within seconds and visualized realistically. From a research point of view we propose solutions for three weaknesses of the state-of-the-art reconstruction pipeline. These contributions allow for a more robust and a considerably faster reconstruction process than before, which can be used, e.g., to create new types of interfaces or to assist in creating virtual environments.
