3D-Reconstruction of EINE ART HAUS rooms



is an ART projekt

von Esther Kusche & Marcus Krips

Körnerstraße 57, 50823 Köln-Ehrenfeld

"13 Wochen lang, vom 6. Mai bis 22. Juli 2017, präsentierten Künstler verschiedenster Genres in den alten Wohnräumen Ihre Arbeit. Sie arbeiteten begeistert in und mit dem Haus, den Räumen, dem Hof - inspirierten, befruchteten und motivierten sich gegenseitig und hinterließen Spuren. "

In order to preserve the ART of the EINE ART HAUS, David Devereux and I decided to support the project by generating 3D reconstructions of the different rooms before the artist had to leave the Körnerstrasse 57 since the house was scheduled for demolition.

Our structure-from-motion approach uses around 30-50 images taken within each room at different positions to reconstruct the 3d shape and texture of room walls and objects inside it along with the intrinsic and extrinsic camera parameters. The artist can use the resulting 3d models to produce replicas for customers using color 3d printers or reuse them for new art. Models can be imported into a game engine (e.g. UR4) and used as core assets. Equirectangular projection rendering of the scene using a fixed 3d view position in each room can be used to produce 360 degree footage.  Current work focuses on porting the assets to a game engine (UR4) to set-up a virtual vernissage.

A FBX recording solution for TorqTrack , the camera tracking system of TrackMen. The program records camera tracking data delivered in real-time via the studio ethernet network,  converts it into the 3D data exchange format AUTODESK FBX and saves it to file.

MOCAD for AUTOCAD is a .NET Plugin for AUTODESK AUTOCAD 2013-2015 developed by Müller Opladen GmbH in cooperation with EckesVision to create cut makros for profile welding machines. The plugin extracts relevant makro parameters from an AUTOCAD construction document and delivers it to the profile welding machine to perform the requested adaption or cut-out of the pipe.

Contact Müller-Opladen for further details.



FbxRecorder is a simple stand-alone application for recording camera tracking data and converting the camera motion into AUTODESK FBX animation files. AUTODESK FBX is a 3D data exchange format natively used by many AUTODESK products such as AUTODESK MAYA,MOTIONBUILDER, SOFTIMAGE, 3DS MAX and many more. 

The Stype Kit is currently suported by FbxRecorder.



The recorded animation curves can be visualized live by the FBXRecorder without the need of having an AUTODESK product installed on the recording computer. Note, however,  AUTODESK offers a free viewer for MS Windows 7/8 64-Bit called FBX Review in order to view  the motion in a FBX scene.

FBX merge tools can be used to merge the pure camera motion generated by the FBXRecorder with any user defined FBX scene to generate a FBX scene containing both scenes. Switch in FBXReview  to the FBXRecorder 'camera'  and move track to view your set from the real camera point of view.  Contact me, in case you need this service.
