Autodesk trials cloud-based photogrammetry service

Autodesk has updated Project Photofly, its cloud-based online image-modelling service.

Project Photofly 2.0, which is currently available via Autodesk’s R&D site, Autodesk Labs, enables users to turn uploaded reference photos into downloadable 3D models.

The service, which is still officially a ‘technology preview’ will remain live until the end of 2012.

Project Photofly, developed by the same team that created Realiviz’s ImageModeler software, has been available since last summer, but did not generate meshes until the latest update.

Updated 1 June: The link to the software client is now live. It’s a 70MB download.
