Crowd Sourced Abraham Lincoln
by AminimalStudio, published
This is a working proof of concept.
Long story short...
I didn't go to Washington DC to 3D scan the Lincoln Memorial.
Instead, I scanned flickr for all related images to "Lincoln Memorial statue" and downloaded the originals.
By uploading it to 123d catch, I was able to receive a 3D model of Abraham Lincoln's Face.

Back in 2001, right after 9/11, we actually 3D laser scanned portions of the Lincoln Memorial and created a watertight version of Abe sitting in the chair, which we printed way back then. Â
We can't post the data to Thingiverse but if anyone wants to know more, contact us. Â See more at:Â http://www.directdimensions.co...
A nifty idea. I wonder if 123D Catch is actually up to the task. I know that on the PC version of 123D Catch you can manually identify "stitching points" to help the program "stitch" the various photo's together. I bet using pictures with different cameras in unique lighting situations will require a lot of manual stitching to help achieve a good result. Did you do any manual stitching to get the face you made?

Hopefully google can integrate this into their search engine in a few years (or months).
