Photogrammetry 101: Capturing Everyday Objects
Topics: Photogrammetry, creating and editing mesh files
Thursday, 7/16 at 4:00 PM and Thursday, 7/23 at 4:00 PM
Note: This is a two-session workshop in which the second session builds on the first.

In this workshop we will learn how to use standard smartphones to “capture” everyday objects and bring them into a virtual spaces for editing, processing, and even fabrication. We’ll divide this workshop across two sessions to allow you a week’s time to capture and process some objects on your own. When we resume the following week, we’ll discuss strategies for processing the mesh files to ready them for fabrication.

Recorded Session:

When designing products and services, great visual design leads to higher perceived value. “Make it look good,” “Make it look designy,” are some things commonly heard in companies, big and small, among both engineers and business developers. In the search for great design, the myth often encountered is that there are only the gifted few who are great designers — sometimes even referred to as “the unicorns.” This is absolutely not true. Anyone can become a great designer with the right training and exposure. People in charge of products, developers, engineers, and business developers in particular can benefit greatly by learning these hacks. This workshop takes a crack at tips, tricks, and shortcuts to creating great visual design.

Note: Workshop topics are covered in DES INV 21 Visual Communication & Sketching; students who have taken that course course may find this workshop repetitive.
