3D model description

This is Turn Table to make ObjectVR.

ObjectVR is like this. You can rotate the figure by mouse or finger in your PC, smart phones or tablets.

Drag(swipe) in the picture, to rotate it.
rotate mouse wheel(pinch) in the picture, to zoom it.
Double click in the picture, to enter fullscreen.

Actually the ObjectVR is a set of photos, so it is not so difficult to make. Because it is 25 years old technology. Most problem to make the ObjectVR is "how to take many photos in regular angles". So I made this.

This turn table is controlled by micro computer, and has IR memote function to shoot camera.
So rotating things and taking photos are done automatically in 1 minute. Also next few steps in PC are done automatically, so you can make one ObjectVR contents in 5 to 10 minutes without effort.

In details of this workflow, please refer to following page.

To make ObjectVR.

You need digital camera with IR remote function (5D does not).
You need not expensive DSLR or mirrorless, but cheep compact camera is enough.
Currently my program works with only Canon cameras, but it is possible to expand to other makers.

You need PC to edit photos, or composite them to ObjectVR. Smart phones or tablets are not enough. You can use both Mac or Windows.

Photoshop may be the most popular software to edit photos, but it is not good to handle many photos. So I am using CINEMA 4D a 3D software. Or movie editer like AftterEffects may be usefull.

Also you need ObjectVR editer "Object2VR". But you can write similar function by Javascript by your hand. Or you need not them if you only replace photos in template.

You need ordinally Web server to publish ObjectVR. Few years ago, it was possible from Dropbox like service, but it may not work now.
You can rent small Web server free.

Note. Only "board_105B.stl" is not for 3D printers, but for CNC milling machine with ø0.1mm engrave cutter.

Also it is possible to use the Turn Table as 3D scanner with image analaizing software like"PhotoScan".
For example in the following ObjectVR, left one is original STL, and right one is reconstructed model from ObjectVR. Then it was taken from 3D printed model of the original STL.

Almost parts I printed with 3DXTech's CFR-PETG and 0.3mm nozzle.
But only for gears, you need smaller nozzle than 0.2mm, like 0.15mm.
