Autodesk Project Photofly 2.0 - our experience
We have performed more tests on the Autodesk Photofly web cloud service for conversion of photos to 3D models. We have tested many other model types - e.g. a car, fire extinguisher, Merkur toy set, amphora or a wooden doggie toy. Some models were processed fast and smoothly, some models had problems with the 3D recognition (shiny surfaces, holes in the toy set).

Autodesk Apps online store
Autodesk has launched a new online tool providing access to many add-on applications directly from AutoCAD 2012 - Autodesk Apps - an Autodesk Exchange store (a kind of "Autodesk Market" similar to Android Market or Apple iTunes).
