The photo scene editor (Project Photofly) on Autodesk Labs is some seriously cool technology, but I just wanted to see where this could be practically utilized. I’ll show an example of the generated models in both 3DS Max and Autodesk Navisworks. The import into Navisworks is particularly intersting as part of the Factory Design Suite and the potential for photographing and generating models of a facility for the purpose of visualization and new equipment integration.
