This video demonstrates how architects can use Autodesk ImageModeler to measure and redraw a building’s facade starting from photographs. Starting from a camera calibration step, ImageModeler allows users to extract 3D coordinates, take measurements, and produce an orthographic projection of the facade. These elements can then be imported to AutoCAD® software for the redrawing step.
