Hi John,

What a nightmare for you, and thank you for sending it to me.

Simon,
The "wiki" (gauge3.info) was lost when the server was replaced .... the data centre deleted files from the old server without keeping a back-up.
I also had problems with this forum which took over a week to repair but was able to save it.
Although the the "wiki" articles and link pages were lost, I do still have copies of all the downloads...including the article you require.
I will email it to you.
Regards,
John.

Is this still available? I'm sure there was an article on building a GWR steam rail motor that I'm trying to hunt down,

Thanks

Robert,

Sorry if you felt I was lecturing you : My intention was to draw attention to the professional applications of photogrammetry (not merely for "hobbyists").

I agree it is a case of "horses for courses" and it is a "broad brush" method.

Although my test subjects have been small (using  just a webcam and empty PLA spool as turntable!), simply to try out the software, the intention is to use it on large objects (e.g. buildings,statues. war memorials) and in conjunction with a professional drone pilot and commercial film/TV broadcast quality photographic equipment.

Regards,
John.

Thank you both for your replies, which were much as expected but it is good to have them confirmed. I have no plans to build any diesel locos so I'll stick with CAD for now. Unless I get a sudden urge to build an A4 ...

John,

While photogrammetry lets you cover a large amount of ground quickly, it does so with a low degree of accuracy. 3D laser scanning on the other hand typically has a smaller footprint of data being collected, but it's collected to a higher level of accuracy.

I think you need to examine the capabilities of both techniques more carefully before you start lecturing me with sales blurb.
