4. 3D Designers

to convert image to 3D model

All of the above applications and software can convert photos to the 3D model you're looking for!

Sometimes, you may need more and more details, applying corrective changes, or an accurate and professional model. Also, You may have no time (or not on mood) to learn how these tools work! don't despair! In these cases, getting help from a good 3D scanner and designer is a good option (Of course, apart from the cost 😁).

3D scanning gives you a very similar model of the original photo. Great! But it has some disadvantages, too! 3D scanning is suitable for color models and making full-color sculptures with 3D printing. 3D mesh is something that determines the detail level of a model and as you see in the below picture, 3D scan can’t give you a high-quality 3D mesh. The texture is the most important factor of similarity in 3d scan and if you remove it from the 3D model, 50% of similarity disappears.

So, if you want to make a full-color sculpture and you absolutely need the texture, 3D scan is so helpful, count on it! But for getting a more customized and accurate 3d model, it's better to think about getting help from 3D designer services. They can create your 3D model any way you like!
