Regard3D is a structure-from-motion program. That means, it can create 3D models from objects using a series of photographs taken of this object from different viewpoints. Here are some tips for the images in order to obtain good results: More images are better; All images should be taken from a slightly different viewpoint than the others; Higher resolution images will produce a more detailed model; The object should be photographed from all possible angles in order to avoid holes in the resulting model; The camera model should be stored in the JPEG, and the camera model should be in the database.
