Free 3D webservice - ARC (Automatic Reconstruction Conduit)

http://www.arc3d.be

ARC - Automatic Reconstruction Conduit
======================================

The University of Leuven offers an easy, zero-cost 3D reconstruction
tool: the ARC 3D web service. ARC is shorthand for Automatic
Reconstruction Conduit. Users upload images of a scene or object to the
ARC service over the Internet. 3D reconstructions are produced fully
automatically. Once the result is ready, the user is notified via e-mail
that she can download the result, via ftp. The result consists of the
3D information as well as the relative vantage points from where the
uploaded images were taken and the settings of the camera(s). The 3D
information can be downloaded in any of a series of popular data
formats.

This service is free for non-commercial use. More information can be
found at
http://www.arc3d.be
It is strongly advised to first read the user guidelines, as images
have to be taken with some care!

ARC is compatible with Meshlab, an open source suite of tools to clean,
simplify or complete the resulting 3D reconstructions. Meshlab was
developed by CNR-ISTI in Pisa. More info on Meshlab, which we recommend
to use in combination with our tool, is found at
http://meshlab.sf.net

As a by-product we plan to produce a repository of 3D models, which we
will also make available in due course to the community.

we hope the ARC webservice will serve you well,
The ARC team
