This professional photogrammetry software is built for user-friendliness. Its UI lowers the entry barriers for beginners and facilitates generating 3D scans with easy to use wizards that explain the process and help choose the right settings. Nonetheless, experienced users can make extensive tweaks to optimize the result and profit from extensive exporting options into many file formats.

Like other cutting-edge solutions, 3DF Zephyr is capable of aligning photogrammetry data with laser scans. This way, you increase the precision of your 3D model while also retaining the texture maps. Although the usual process is completely automatic, you can intervene manually if you want to work with your scan in a CAD program. 3DF Zephyr allows you to draw shapes using the imagery as a reference. This native CAD model can be sent to programs like Autodesk Revit for BIM modeling.

The best thing about this photogrammetry software is that you can download a free version. The difference to the paid version is a cap of a maximum of 50 images used for the reconstruction, a smaller range of editing tools. Professionals should also check out the GIS and survey tools in the advanced versions.
