Ogle software – ready to 3D print

Ogle: The OpenGLExtractor is an open source software that captures and extracts 3D data and writes out a 3D geometry file in a standard format, making it ready to be printed out and made real.

Who’s using this and how? Check out their blog and you’ll see a sample of people, from avid gamers to architects using OGLE, along with other data cleaning software such as Autocad’s Maya and 3D printers to physically render anything from their avatars in Second Life or fave characters from World of Warcraft, to building models and geographic terrain extracted from Google Earth.

This open-source project is part of Eyebeam Open Lab, a non-profit arts and technology center dedicated to research and development in experimental technologies and media for the public domain.
