We've got a ton of video tutorials to help you! From tips on how to set up a scene and subject for capture, how to work with your mesh, or how to prep a catch for 3D printing - we cover a bit of everything.
Check out our 123D Catch channel on youtube - we'd love to help you get the best catch you can!
Lots of truly fantastic catches this week! I feel like the catches look better and better all the time. You should definitely click through and check these out in the gallery - they have so much detail screenshots just can't capture. Awesome work, everyone!
If you're having an issue with something you're creating or if the software isn't playing nice, please post a topic there to let us know! In addition, if you think you might be able to help others with their problems, feel free to jump in!
Also free free to leave us any suggestions you might have - we would love to hear them.
Starting pretty soon at Disney's Hollywood Studios you have an opportunity to be cast in carbonite! They're using technology similar to 123D Catch to capture your head. I can't wait to see some user created versions of this - have a feeling we might see some in the gallery here or on thingiverse!
To help to find a way to attach lights to the Bay Bridge for The Bay Lights installation, 123D Catch was used to capture a section of the cable on the bridge! The catch worked very well, and was 3D printed so the team had a nice scaled down model to work with.
I love seeing these practical uses of 123D Catch - it can really make a ton of things easier.
Check out the video above to find out more about the process and the project - it's awesome!
David Lang of OpenROV found out 123D Catch works well underwater too! The video above is a Catch of a starfish that was originally taken as a video - he pulled the Catch from stills. How neat is that? Click through to see the stills and learn a little more about it!
Bilal Ghalib of Autodesk & GEMSI is planning a "3DFLASHMOB!" to get a Catch of the Sphinx!
If you're in or around Cairo or know someone that is - pass on the invite! It's happening on Tuesday, April 24th at 9 AM and is sure to be a ton of fun. I'm really excited to see the results! If all goes well, people will be headed back to the Cairo Hackerspace to make a cardboard replica.
