Recap & Recap 360
« on: May 21, 2015, 08:27:24 AM »
Anyone using Recap360? Next to Infraworks 360, Recap 360 is my new favorite tool.  :)

This is a little test I did. I took a series of photos using my iPhone 6 and uploaded them to the Recap 360 cloud service and it created a 3D model that I can download as an RCS file (point cloud), clean up using Recap and bring into AutoCAD or Revit to create a 3D model of existing conditions.

Cool!  been wondering how it works and wanting to give it a test.

How does it stack up to accuracy?
I + XI = X is true ...
... if you change your perspective.

It depends on... well.... LOTS of factors. Lighting and variations in texture are probably the biggest contributors to getting a good result. Notice how it's overcast? That helps eliminate a lot of the over/under exposure and unwanted shadows. Also, there's a good amount of contrast in textures, shapes, etc. that make it easier for Recap to stitch the photos together. I did an interior test in our multipurpose room at work about a month ago and because all of the walls are the same color, and the tables are the basically the same color as the walls, and there isn't a lot in the room to begin with, I ended up with less than desirable results. I could've added something like different colored pieces of paper on the walls to help it stitch the photos better.

This view of the house gives you a better idea of how accurate the photo stitching is.

Cool.  We took a bunch of photos for a roof replacement project(s) and I thought those would be a good test. 

I have some training time coming that I was going to use it to clean my cube but I think I will use it on this.  Sound more productive.  :crazy2:
