3DF Zephyr 3.0 goes Open beta!

We’re happy to announce that 3DF Zephyr 3.0 is almost ready to ship! While we iron out the last remaining bugs and finish polishing the newest features, why don’t you help us out testing our latest build?

To download and test the beta go to: http://www.3dflow.net/3df-zephyr-3-0-goes-open-beta/

As usual, all technology improvements are common to all Zephyr’s flavors, and that obviously includes 3DF Zephyr Lite and Steam Edition. Enjoy the new faster global structure from motion pipeline, the new Mesh photo-consistent optimization and every other tweak we made under the hood! The 3.0 update will be free for all existing steam users!

A special announcement for our 3DF Zephyr Lite (both standard users and Steam) users :

- Advanced mode added to Zephyr Lite/Steam Edition 3.0

We feel that many Lite users can benefit a lot from our advanced settings (until now available only to Pro and Aerial users), so Lite versions are no longer locked to “preset mode” only. Enjoy more control over your reconstruction process!

About This Software

3DF Zephyr allows you to automatically and easily create 3D models from photos.

The process is completely automatic and no coded targets, manual editing or special equipments are needed: with a user friendly interface and the possibility to export in many common 3D formats, 3DF Zephyr is the perfect tool for 3D modelling from reality.

Steam Edition includes all 3.x updates.

Please note that 3DF Zephyr runs only on Microsoft Windows x64 operating systems (Vista and later)

FAQs:

-------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How long does it take to create a 3D reconstruction ?

A: this depends on the number of pictures, the resolution of the pictures, the settings used in Zephyr as well as the hardware of your computer! It can take from a few minutes up to even several hours! An example? The dismal statuette used in the video takes about 1 hour on an i7, 8GB ram notebook with a Quadro card. We have a trial version you can use so you can make your own tests before buying, but feel free to contact us if you want some clarifications!

-------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Which file formats can Zephyr export to?

A: Zephyr Lite can export to PLY , OBJ/MTL and STL.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Does Zephyr support 3D printing out of the box?

A: The output, while ready for 3D printing, might need some adjustments in your 3D printer's software.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are there limits in 3DF Zephyr Lite, compared to the Pro edition?

A: Yes, most notably you'll be limited to 200 pictures per projects (which are a lot!) and up to 1 nVidia card for GPU processing. For a more in depth feature comparison, feel free to check our website. However, remember that the core technology is the very same.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How should i take pictures ?

A: The better the picture quality, the better the results. Obviously a DSLR camera works better than a phone camera, but you can get results even with reasonably cheap hardware. Please note that reflective and transparent surfaces might be a problem, which sometime can be solved in the way the pictures are shot, and sometimes they can't. In our free tutorials, we tackle this issues and we are always ready to take a look at your dataset if you have doubts. A certain overlap between images is required.
