I opened a free account with Sketchfab and am learning about ways to share 3D models on the web. I’ve uploaded a few sample models that can be inspected (I believe) in pretty much any browser.
If you use this website/service and want to comment below, please do! It seems pretty robust and simple/user friendly at the same time.

… sharing a youtube clip of a fly through of a point cloud derived through photogrammetry. ~25 millions points
A fly through of a 3D Model of a Stone Building derived through Photogrammetry showing the model overall and then getting closer to the surface to show the richness of organic detail captured.

10 years ago today I formed Aaslestad Preservation Consulting llc to better pursue my interest in ways of capturing, understanding, and visualizing the built world. Its led me to some great collaborations in unique places. I’m very grateful and looking forward to new horizons under changing skies, somehow still afloat and seaworthy!
Its admittedly pretty fun to fly around a house once you have the point cloud made, taking “pictures” that you couldn’t have snapped when you were actually on site without the use of a jetpack!

This is a house in West Haven, CT.
View of “internal organs”
Using a medical analogy to understand new ways of accessing point cloud data… The slide above shows the point cloud in RECAP software with the exterior envelope layer turned off, revealing the cluster of internal spaces.
The slides below show a series of “slices” taken vertically through the buildings at 1 meter intervals, from north towards the south and then from east proceeding towards the west.
