UCSD has done a lot of work helping to advance viz environments made from commodity hardware. Radically less expensive than environments developed from custom hardware by commercially-oriented professional outfits.
S--Sami: 30 min to 90 min, 30-150 photos to get a full digital 2D recording of an object, which are input to PhotoScan, the software that assembles a 3D object model in a series of photo-processing stages. This can take from an hour to days, depending on the number of 2D photos used to create the 3D model, but also depending on a broad set of issues that can arise in the course of the PhotoScan processing.
R--Rachna: Smaller, flatter objects are generally simpler (and quicker) to model.
Camille: is there manual work involved in 2D->3D in PhotoScan, or does the software do it all?
S-- & R--Sami & Rachna: some manual, more taking away spurrious points that PhotoScan includes in the model than adding manual.
