Full 3D stereogram

I did this last year; two renders of the same bike (drawn by my boss) from slightly different angles...move close to the screen and gently go cross-eyed (the left image is for the right eye and the right for the left...this is a convergent rather than diverent image)  when the two images converge in the centre (a third image) it will be in full 3D stereoscope!  I don't suggest you do this for too long if you have an old CRT monitor though!

Please post your own sterograms below, I'd love to see what people have done.

Worked great!  Even with an LCD, it's eye-challenging though. How much angle difference did you use?  I'll have to try it with a control room.

That's cool Garry. Works like a charm.

That's excellent, Garry. Worked better for me when I backed away from the screen; didn't have to cross my eyes as drastically.

Thanks guys...

...the angle...I just guessed, I looked across the room and closed one eye at a time noting the difference in angles then approximated that in the two renders.  Can't wait to see your 3D control room, and others.

Not a stereogram but AnimationLab can do stereoscopic 3D. I haven't checked if it works yet - I'm still trying to find a pair of those goofy red/green specs my young bloke has in 3D book here somewhere.

It works very well Julian with the red / green specs.

Drew this one this morning...a divergent picture again, so go gently cross-eyed.

The key for me to see the keys (or the bike) without straining is to go cross eyed until I see three equally spaced blurry images, then allow my eyes to focus on the middle one.  Pretty easy if I'm sitting back from the monitor. 

Good-looking stuff.

Very nice job on the keys and their placement with the ring and tag.

Love the motorcycle - So much detail and great in 3D.
I'll have to have a go!

Well Garry, I had a go!
This is a scrap view of the back of my metal Mini-Lathe.
How do you get your 2 views? I struggled with the Mouse Wheel Button - but I figure using "Cameras" would be a better way if I knew how to use this tool!

John

Tip: After you settle upon a view you like, be sure to save it as a Named View. Then go to View>Camera>Properties and look at the Position values, which tell you where the virtual camera is located (in World coordinates). Change these values as required to move the camera about three inches to one side and save the result as another Named View (for the other eye).

Here's a stereo of the cut glass object I recently posted in another thread. Cross your eyes to look at this one...

John & Henry,

Great work guys, it's terrific to see a model in 3D.  Great job for your first attempt John.

Great vase - the facets are so real, even more so in 3D.
Also many thanks for your Tip - it has started me off trying to get to grips with the Camera tool although, at present, I'm struggling how to move the 3" in the right/wanted direction! Maybe I should start from a defined view, rather than the "gung ho" method with the mouse wheel switch which leaves me in a very unpredicted 3D place.
Regards
John

Thanks for pointing me in the 3D direction, I've dabbled a bit, in the past, with photograph pairs but hadn't appreciated I could do the same with TurboCAD.
That's what I like about TurboCAD (coming from AutoCAD use, in my previous life before retirement), the information is there it just needs a bit of digging, and this forum is a wealth of knowledge and opportunity.
Thanks,
John

Couldn't find my 3D glasses.

Do either of these work?

Thanks Don,

Red and Blue grandkids plastic drinking glasses don't help get settings adjusted  :)

TurboFlrPlan has Stereo with 3 adjustment options built into it.

Hi guys,

A bit of a variation to the stereograms, is the magic eye picture...I drew the 3D star shape in TurboCAD, then lit it with a single spot light.  I had to keep adjusting the light levels (too much light and the close parts come too close, too dark and they disappear into the background)  Once complete, I uploaded the picture to:

http://www.easystereogrambuilder.com

...where I added a pattern and the algorithm did the rest.

I'm getting close to having the lighting just right so I can do some more complex magic eye pictures.

I did this one this morning...it's a little smoother, and the original TC drawing is below it.

Cool stereograms everyone!  I haven't posted in a long time, but I follow the great works by all of you TC artists every day.  I recently carved out some time to get back to creating new TC designs.  These posts inspired to convert some of my designs into stereograms too.  The method I used to create these is that I saved each design twice into a 1600x1600 size jpeg. One jpeg with the camera turned slightly left, and the other jpeg with the camera turned slightly to the right.  Then I used IrfanView to copy/paste each jpeg into a 1600x3200 sized file.   A keen eye may notice a theme in these designs ;)   I hope you enjoy them.

David

Those are great, David.
