Discover how AR Code enables users to easily upload and render photogrammetric scans of their creations in augmented reality, and share them through AR QR Codes for an immersive experience.
Understanding Photogrammetric 3D Scans
Photogrammetry is a technique for capturing 3D representations of objects or environments using photographs. To create a photogrammetric scan, take photographs of the subject from multiple angles, ideally using video to cover the entire object. It is recommended to have a minimum of 200 photos for accurate results. The 3D reconstruction software then processes these images to create a detailed model.
Integrating Photogrammetry with Augmented Reality
Augmented reality technology enables users to interact with digital content in their physical environment. It is commonly used on smartphones, but can also be experienced through specialized AR glasses and other wearables. AR overlays digital content such as 3D models, text, or videos onto the user's view of the real world, seamlessly integrating digital elements into the physical environment.
Photogrammetry involves the 3D reconstruction of real-world objects or scenes using photographs and specialized software. Once reconstructed, the resulting 3D model can be viewed and manipulated using various 3D modeling software, including the AR Code SaaS platform.
AR Code's innovative web service allows you to easily display photogrammetric models in an augmented reality environment. In just a few steps, you can create an AR QR Code to anchor your 3D photogrammetry within the real world.
Utilizing the AR Code Service to Upload Your Photogrammetry
AR Code is a powerful SaaS platform that enables you to upload your 3D files and easily anchor them to AR QR Codes. Manage your various AR experiences on the platform, which provides valuable statistics and unique features for 3D creation or scan tracking.
Check out these demo videos demonstrating the process of capturing an AR photogrammetry display from the initial capture to the final AR rendering.
Creating an AR Code from Photogrammetry: Video Tutorial
- Take photos or capture a video around the object (recommended duration: under 30 seconds)
- Process the photogrammetry with a MacBook M1 and the MacOS Photocatch software: Photocatch MacOS (Alternative OS/photogrammetry software can also be used)
- Export the 3D model as a .obj file
- Follow this tutorial to optimize your 3D model: Optimize a 3D model for AR Code
- Export the model in *.glb format from Blender (https://www.blender.org/download/)
- Upload it to your AR Code Premium account: https://ar-code.com
Revolutionizing Restaurant Menus with Dish Photogrammetry
Augmented reality can revolutionize the dining experience in restaurants by providing customers with an immersive and engaging way to explore menu items. For example, AR can be used to display 3D representations of dishes, allowing customers to visualize the dishes before placing an order.
Frequently asked questions
How can I create a 3D model using photogrammetry for use in AR Code?
To create a 3D model using photogrammetry, you'll need to capture a video or take multiple photos (recommended: 200+) of the object from various angles. Then, process the photogrammetry using specialized software, such as Photocatch for MacOS or another photogrammetry software for other operating systems. Export the 3D model as a .dae file and optimize the textures using GIMP. Import the 3D file into Blender and export it in *.glb format. Finally, upload the model to your AR Code Premium account to generate an AR QR Code.
What are some possible applications of AR Code and photogrammetry in various industries?
AR Code combined with photogrammetry has numerous applications across different industries. For instance, in the restaurant industry, AR can be used to showcase 3D representations of menu items, allowing customers to visualize the dishes before ordering. In retail, AR can help customers visualize products in their homes or on their bodies. In architecture and design, AR can be used to visualize 3D models of structures and interior spaces in real-world environments.
How can I share my AR experiences created with AR Code?
After uploading your 3D photogrammetry model to AR Code and generating an AR QR Code, you can easily share the AR experience by embedding the QR Code on your website, social media, or print materials. Users can then scan the QR Code with their smartphones or AR glasses to view and interact with the 3D content in an augmented reality environment.
