Autodesk Memento, previously available as an Autodesk Labs technology preview, is now available as a free public beta.
Memento is designed to convert any reality capture input (such as photos or scans) into 3D in the form of high quality models. This 3D mesh can be cleaned up, fixed, compared over time and optimized for further digital use, for physical fabrication methods like 3D printing and for 3D interactive experiences on the Web -- it is an all-in-one single app made from scratch specifically for new reality computing workflows.
Memento can handle 2+billion polygon meshes with unprecedented ease of use. No computer-aided design expertise is required, thus making Reality Computing accessible to a wide audience of new users who can leverage these new technological capabilities.
The beta release of Memento includes a new web site with links to learning material and use cases, and soon will open a 3D Online Gallery that allows 3D digitized models to be viewed and shared interactively online, FBX export with cameras (that allows digital artists to better control the texture of the digitized models), view of the photo camera positions in 3D space, more robust photo processing capabilities and more.
Beta users will experience Memento first as a cloud-connected desktop app that will initially be available on the Windows platform, followed by a Mac version later in the quarter, followed by interactive 3D publishing on the Web soon after.
