Use a normal camera to capture 2D or 3D data and use the native Rhino 3dm data exchange.
Have you thought of modeling the world using just a camera? You can extract accurate 2D and 3D data from objects and scenes using a normal camera. PhotoModeler is a great measurement tool with some basic modeling capability, but it is often best to finish the work in a real modeler like Rhino 3D.
PhotoModeler and a Camera are a cost-effective way for accurate 2D and 3D scanning, measurement, surveying and reality capture.
Applications for PhotoModeler and Rhino 3D include:
PhotoModeler shares data with Rhino 3D via the native Rhino 3dm file format.
The exported data to Rhino 3dm can include points, lines, surfaces, NURBS (curves and surfaces), triangulated meshes, photo-textures, and locations of the camera that took the photos (great for back plate work).
