During the last Christmas holiday I started working on a little side project, namely converting an image (preferably a logo) into a point cloud.
This is fairly simple by taking the pixels (which have a x; y position) and converting them into 3d (x -> X; y-> -Z; stacking XZ points -> Y).
Asking the right questions:
- Is this necessary? No
- Is this helpful? Definitely not
- Is it funny? Somewhat...
- It's a gadget.
Therefore everybody can use this gadget to convert his 2d logo into a point cloud and include it, for example with Potree, into their website.
Image import formats are among others png, jpg, svg, gif, ...
Export formats are currently LAS, LAZ and XYZ.
Here is a little tutorial how to use it:
I have only compiled it for Windows, the executable can be downloaded from github -> releases and should be completely portable.
