Printing direct to substrate, North American Plywood has adapted an Inca Onset high-definition inkjet press into its panel processing system.
With the technological advances of laser and inkjet printing onto single sheets of decor paper, or even imaging directly onto panel surfaces (NAPLY is inkjetting simulated veneer patterns onto baltic birch plywood sheets, for example), the replication of wood imagery will have an increasingly important role. Expectations for quality and realism will cotinue to rise among buyers.
"The output of photogrammetry is typically a map, drawing, measurement, or a 3D model of some real-world object or scene," notes Photogrammetry.com. Many of the maps are created with photogrammetry and photographs taken from aircraft.
Close-range Photogrammetry the camera is close to the subject and is typically hand-held or on a tripod.
Visual creative Oliver Weingarten shows the application of photogrammetry - the science of making measurements from photographs - to show a 3D portrait of a log.
Weingarten says he is still exploring the boundaries of photogrammetry and trying to push limits. In addition to the log shown at top, he has done "an even more complex shape of an old and dry root I found."
Usually this type of photogrammetry is non-topographic - that is, the output is not topographic products like terrain models or topographic maps, but instead drawings, 3D models, measurements and point clouds. Everyday cameras are used to model and measure buildings, engineering structures, forensic and accident scenes, mines, earth-works, stock-piles, archaeological artifacts, film sets, etc. This type of photogrammetry (CRP for short) is also sometimes called Image-Based Modeling.
