PhotoModeler to 3D PDF Work-flow

Convert a collection of photos around an object from drone, DSLR, or smart-phone into an interactive 3D PDF using PhotoModeler and PDF3D ReportGen.

The process of capturing a 3D digital model from an actual object is often performed using a digital camera and photogrammetry to reconstruct a 3D geometric mesh with texture derived from the original photos.

This sample illustrates the process, […]

Visualization of Quantum Chromodynamics Case Study

Professor Derek Leinweber spends his days working at the extreme scale of just a few femtometers (fm), in a space large enough for just a few protons. A leading particle physicist, Derek is investigating Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong interaction between quarks and gluons, the fundamental particles that make up composite hadrons such as the proton, neutron […]
