I’m trying out DroneDeploy with our Skydio 2 to provide a complimentary 3D model to our customers when we perform our inspections.
Here I have a screenshot of the 3D rendering on DroneDeploy, which is unuseable. I also tried uploading a photo taken by the Skydio 2 so you can see what the pipes are supposed to look like, but I guess new users to the forum can only upload 1 photo. I’m a long-time drone pilot, but I’m new to DroneDeploy and photogrammetry in general. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Total of 206 photos taken for this part of the inspection, all in one go, which took about 20-30 minutes.
Photos were taken on a sunny day and pipes are mostly white in color. Since all photos were taken in a brief time-span, I don’t think shadows would be an issue, and since the pipes are white I also don’t think reflectivity should be an issue, as it may be with uncolored metal pipes.
