This is an old topic but I hope you can suggest the best methods to model small objects. I have tried taking images with my phone of a teapot on a black background. I removed the background in photoshop then tried to ODM to model it. The outcome wasn’t useful, there was a bit of a shape but it was disjointed with lots of holes in the shape. Is there a site you could suggest where I might find some instruction.
Many thanks, do you recommend a turntable method as described by some people. My attempt was hand held random shots while turning the teapot on the black felt cloth. I turned the pot upside down and did random radial shots as well.
I’ve actually had better results when not using a turntable, hand held works very well, and keeps the background further away and out of focus. It’s difficult to keep a turntable out of the reconstruction.
I just aim to minimise the number of images with my hand or other support in view, and change my grip position around so my hand doesn’t become part of the reconstruction.
