A Project Photofly 2.1 update has just been released. This update is a minor release update to improve based on feedback and testing since release of 2.0 a month ago.
Project Photofly allows anyone with a common point and shoot digital camera to create near accurate 3D models from photographs using the power of cloud computing, for free. The 3D models can be used in CAD and 3D applications, shared with others through YouTube, and viewed in IPM format by Autodesk's free Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer application for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android devices.
Some of the highlights in 2.1:
- FBX file export (mesh, cameras, user geometry) This also means you can use the AutoCAD import FBX to get the mesh into AutoCAD.
- IPM exported files now support both iPhone and Android
- Better network proxy management
- Proper handling of names containing non-ascii characters
- More helpful user feedback on failures
- Optimization of the data downloaded
- Better use of photos EXIF data
- Improved manual stitching workflow
- Multiple-selection of image thumbnails
