Isn’t it wonderful to be able to design a 3D representation of yourself? Absolutely, it would be. Unfortunately, the procedure is rather time-consuming and necessitates a large number of photos. To map every contour, you typically require several images taken from various angles of the same face. Fortunately, there is an easy solution for those of us who are regular users. An AI system can now be taught to quickly reproduce the contour of a face from a single shot thanks to recent research at The University of Nottingham and Kingston University in the UK. Oh, and anyone can try the project because it is open source. Intrigued? Continue reading as we demonstrate how to turn a single image into a 3D model of your face:
Create a 3D Model of Your Face
Although any image can be used to generate the model, for optimal results attempt to use one where the item is looking directly at the camera.
- To start off, visit the project website here.
- Click on the Choose File option. A new window will pop-up. Select the image you wish to transform from your computer.
- Once you ve selected the image you wanted to create a 3D model of, click on Upload Image .
- The selected image will now be uploaded to the server. After a while, the page will automatically refresh showing you the 3D model of the image.
- You can now use your mouse to drag and move the 3D model as you like. Also, on the right-hand side, you ll get a Z-Transform scale, to move the 3D figure closer or away from the main background image. You also have the option to remove the background image altogether and play with the 3D model alone.
We’ve published a few of the 3D models we made utilising well-known people below.
