This project was a tricky one in terms of processing it into a 3D model. With the lack of features and changing light it's a real challenge for dense image matching method of processing. However, with a bit of tweaking and some CPU horsepower the model came out beautifully using Skyline Photomesh. Other software was tried, but it couldn't reproduce the model as accurately. Skyline even got involved to assist with the processing as it was such an interesting project.
