In this project, we develop a custom 3D pipeline to capture the shape and appearance of Alan Shepard’s Space Suit, a challenging asset for any 3D capture technology. Our focus is on high-resolution mesostructure reproduction, and we introduce to that end a new hybrid approach to normal/displacement capture, where each single image is enriched with normal and depth neural estimations, fused with the output of the traditional photogrammetry pipeline, to capture rich details, in the highly versatile form of material maps.
