Fotomo: 3D scenes from photos

Sign in to queue


This one was cool enough to keep me up at night with an X-acto knife and double-sided tape. Fotomo is the art of taking pictures of a scene, printing it out, cutting and folding into a three-dimensional construct of the scene. This link will give you an overview and a sample photo to start with.

It took me about half an hour to build the scene in the picture. One thing that will cut your time considerably is using "photo splits" , they are small square pieces of double sided tape with backing on both sides that are much easier to work with than glue or a roll of tape. Now if I can just figure out a way to makes these from a Photosynth scene.
