Strata Foto 3D SE
Strata Foto 3D SE lets you use a standard digital camera to capture real-world objects as fully textured 3D models. It's ideal for difficult to model objects like organic shapes, soft forms and handmade items. Powered by patented camera technology developed by Canon, Foto 3D turns your camera into a 3D model creation tool.
And now add 3D models to iBooks using a combination of Strata's Design 3D and Apple's iBooks Author.
Use Models For:
• Illustrations in Strata Design 3D SE
• Animations in Strata Design 3D CX
• 3D web models in Strata Live 3D CX
• 3D Layers in Adobe Photoshop Extended
• 3D PDF documents in Acrobat Pro
• Import into virtually any other 3D software!
• Model creation wizard
• Automated mask creation tools
• Interactive model adjustment
• Includes printable PDF template
• Patented camera and lens correction technology
Layers Magazine gave Foto 3D four and a half stars, saying: "Strata Foto 3D makes it possible to take nearly any object and make a 3D model with just a little set-up time and a digital camera."
Foto 3D models are ideal for developing packaging, games, illustrations, online catalogs and more. Museums like the Museum of London use Foto 3D technology to capture hundreds of artifacts and bring them to an online audience. Packaging firms use Foto 3D to get accurate models of products to build packaging around. Brand owners use Foto 3D to show off their products in online catalogs. The only limit to how you can use Foto 3D is your own imagination.
Put real-world objects in your VR, AR, Sketchfab, Photoshop, iBooks and other projects using the Collada file export capabilities. Shoot pictures with your smartphone or digital camera, bring them into Foto 3D and export the 3D model.

Ever see something that just makes your jaw drop!!! - I didn't believe this app could do what it claimed, but WOW!!! This program is nothing short of amazing. I can't believe how simple this is to use. I can't tell you how many times I used the word "WOW" watching it work. Just WOW!!! I'm so glad I got it when it was on sale, otherwise I would never had taken a chance on it. I am recomending this to EVERYONE!!! I'm literally fighting with myself not to go wake up all my neighbors and get them to try it, I am that jazzed over this!!!
Mjah - it kind a works… but - The "but" part is the problem. Basically the software works by adding together the profiles of a number of alpha channel or masks. and you are able to photograph the object also from above to get a good clear shot of the top profile also. clearly the software can not create a hole, only chissle away based on the profiles found in the masks.. the more accurate the mask the better the wireframe. There is a cool trick, it is possible to turn the object to a problem angle and make a virtual profile for that angle to refine the model. The software auto-create a texture map for the object. also pretty cool. BUT.. yeah that was the but then. even the best masking job will still only get a fairly rudimentary wireframe. Second, export to WRML or 3DS or nothing.. even then, not all 3D apps are keen on understanding the texture map. Thirdly. unlike the big brother version of the app, the SE version in the app store can ONLY capture objects one a special matt, the larger version can place control points for matt free capture. STOP - here is the BIG problem - this version is SE which must be V0.9 the standard version is CX 1.0 and CX 2.0 - PROBLEM there is no upgrade path from SE to CX 1 or 2 and CX2 cost $650 So buying the app store version kind of leave you stranded. unable to upgrade. Unfortunately, the software is amazing, but I am stuck to this one and need to fork out $650 to move on… suddenly I do not feel the app store "deal" is such a great deal at all. Just my 2 cents..
