  1. Vi3Dim have developed a new 3D capture system that could revolutionize the way in which 3D models of real-world objects are created. We have created a first commercial program that able to build 3D models of textured objects in several minutes, using only a standard computer and web-cam. This allows 3D modeling to become accessible to everybody.

  2. Hi Vitaly,

    Nice to know about it. I want to see this kind of technology developed as open-source. Then people could find new applications to it.
