Possibly Off-Topic: Combine multiple views into a 3D model?

by leviathan0999

So, I collect and customize 12" action figures, and was chatting with a friend about how a great addition to a collection of "Star Trek" figures would be the Great Bird of the Galaxy himself, Gene Roddenberry. My friend mentioned that he'd once tried to buy a prototype headsculpt, and had saved a picture, which he shared. As you can see attached, it's nine views going all around that sculpt. It seems to me that it might be possible to run those views through some software and create a 3D printable model.

Is there such a software tool?

Conversely, is there someone here who'd be interested in stepping up to the plate and creating such a model through the sheer artistic talent and artistry I so utterly lack?

Our Experience PhotoCamera + Autodesk ReMake + Meshmixer

by 3DWithUs

We scanned one of the creatures on the lamp post by taking as many pictures as we could from all possible angles. As we couldn’t cover all the angles, we’ve done some fixing in Autodesk ReMake and sculpting in Meshmixer.

Tango Phones for 3D Scanning... Or Not?

by Micheit

Does anyone have a Tango device yet? It has all the hardware to 3D scan, but can it? It sounds to good to be true.
