Hello,

I wanted to try and make a 3d model of my Farther house - he is a retired surveyer and would love it.

I have had a look at pix4d which looks great but is very expensive! Are there any cheaper alternatives or trial versions worth looking at or should I pay for a month of pix4d.

It will be flown with an Inspire if that make any difference?

Cheers,

Mike

Sorry - poor description on my part! I was to fly the Inspire round his house and produce a 3d rendered version he can view on his PC and move around with the mouse. That was why I looked at Pix4D.

DroneDeploy offer a free version whereby you van create 3D models pretty simply. The downside of the free plan is that you can only play with the free models online (can't download them).

There's an app called FPV Camera that can do just that..... their website is fpvbooster.com

fpvbooster.com is not free though. Pretty sure Pix4d and dronedeploy have free trials and if you have more than one email address you can get several trials.
Here's one I prepared earlier

Hello Mark, can you please tell me if you made your 3d model with pix4d or dronedeploy?

Thanks

Once you have the shots, you can upload them to Dronedeploy/Altizure and use them on the pc with Pix4d.

Thanks Salty,
I used the same photos to do this one with Pix4d, they allow you to make an animation which you can share.

That's a good little model that Mark.  How many images went into the DroneDeploy engine to create that?  And was the flight profile an orbit or two around the building?  I've been doing some work with Mapsmadeeasy, mainly just nadir (top down) images at the moment, but I'm looking to try creating some models of buildings and getting the details on the sides (windows, doorways, walls etc).

I've not tried drone deploy yet though, it's on my to do list.

Cheers

Thanks for the information Mark,

Hi Andy,

This one was around 120 shots all nadir in a grid pattern.

That's good.  It's picked up some nice detail on the sides of the walls for nadir images.

The last attempt I made using nadir images resulted in some really odd mapping down the sides of the walls of the building I was working with.  I've had a few passes at using images taken with the camera at 45° too, using a point of interest and interval mode on the camera.  That worked really well for the sides of walls.

I found a good combination was to use Altizure to get the shots and then upload to Dronedeploy for processing. Altizure uses a more thorough flight pattern.
