Turn drone footage into 3D terrain models, which you can 3D print – Boing Boing

by • February 6, 2016 • No Comments

Drone Deploy is an analytics and automation box that uses drones to turn it into accurate 3D terrain and architectural versions.

You conduct a reconnaissance overflight initially, and so use its imagery to specify the showcases you want to map. The app programs a flight-path that can capture the imagery of that the geometry can be derived, by comparing images of the same showcases of various angles. The 3D version is skinned with the bitmaps captured on the same flights, yielding an explorable, manipulable version.
Of course, once you have such a version, you can feed it to a slicer, turn it into an STL, and run it through a 3D printing device of your choosing.
The company highlights industrial uses of its tech: a soy grower who utilized versions to optimize agricultural yields (a potato farmer is doing a thing similar) and a construction manager who uses it to remain abreast of leading projects that are too far apart to visit regularly.
