Reconstruction of a pre-romanesque fountain

Following the project of reconstructing a pre-romanesque church one of my students (Pelayo Huerta Segovia) conducted a similar project with a pre-romanesque fountain in Oviedo: La Foncalada.

The pictures were taken in 2017 but the reconstruction with VisualSFM and CloudCompare was not very good; you can download the model here, it is a non-textured mesh with 1 million faces and an obvious flaw (a huge blob at the top).

In 2020 I processed the pictures with Meshroom and RealityCapture with outstanding results:

The RealityCapture model was small enough to be uploaded to and you can enjoy it below:

Also in 2020, Pelayo retopologized and rebaked the last model to create an optimized one, you can download that optimized model here.
