Use one or more photo to design a CAD file to make a part or assembly

If you don't have skills designing parts in 2D or 3D, photogammetry permits taking up to 40 photos of a part or assembly from many angles. Then input the photos to 123D a Autodesk program for free at present. The software converts multiple photo images to a CAD file that can be used to print the part on a 3D printer. Once there is a CAD file it can be stretched or minimized in x, y or z axis to match your design need.

I found a yoga expert that agrees to use this process to show various yoga poses to make statuettes and possibly full size statues. They may be sold at the studio she works at or museum selling art. This may also work for 3D wall mounted art to look like sculpted from granite or marble. Or painted to look more real.

If you want to make a robot that looks like a person or a mask for Halloween this may be a way to do it. I like some of the vases and containers with Greek art on them at the Getty. Making a 3D printed replica is a affordable way to own something with a design not available any other way. Making a replica of a Centurion armor or a knights armor for a costume is another way to make authentic looking costumes for a party.
