Chapter 6. 123D Catch

123D Catch allows anyone to turn photographs of places, people, and things into high-definition 3D models—a process that used to be expensive and available to a relative few lucky professionals. These models can then be optimized for the Web, mobile, or 3D printing.

The Android and iOS versions of Catch allow you to capture images directly with your smartphone or tablet camera.

People have used Catch to capture objects of all shapes and sizes, from the Venus de Milo (Figure 6-1), to a sleeping cat (Figure 6-2), to standing stones in Scotland (Figure 6-3). It is a remarkable and powerful tool.
