Hi All,

Have a look at this picture:

http://www.3dphoto.net/stereo/world/macro/power_supply.html

Ever noticed how standard pics are quite low definition? Well look at that picture again, at a normal viewing distance. Next slowly cross your eyes until the two images converge together. It will look blury for a few moments, but just keep looking until it snaps into focus. Don't force it...just keep looking as your brain needs time to adjust.

Notice anything?

Its in 3d! The great thing about this is that the definition is amazing.

Try it. Board scans using this techniqe would be great!

Tell me if you can get it to work.

Regards,

T

That is very cool, but how would you go about scanning things in 3D?

It looks to me that they are just two pictures taken from slightly different angles. But I'm probably wrong.

Yup, it can be done using a scanner and a camera. The shots are taken at slightly different angles.

For people who cannot do it, try the tutorials below to learn how to view in parrelel:

If you are really looking for a challenge, then try to learn how to view divergently, instead of cross eyed. With this technique, the right eye sees the right picture and the left eye sees the left picture. Its darn difficult to do, as you eyes were never programmed to do this!

Its easier with simple shapes as above...but using the divergent method on complex pictures such as the circuit board takes alot of training.

If you learn either method you will be amazed at the 3d images avaliable. It is actually useful for determining the height and direction of components on a board.

Tell me if any of you have sucess at doing this. Its worth the effort.
