Parrot is a leading French drone manufacturer. Pix4D is a mapping software developer. They are jointly presenting Pix4D’s new drone solution for 3D modeling. Pix4D’s flight planning mobile app, which has been available for DJI and 3DR drones, can now fly Parrot’s Bebop 2 drone. The Bebop is now enabled to automatically capture images of buildings to create digital 3D models using Pix4D software.
“The Bebop 2, because it is so compact, lightweight and easy to operate, is probably the safest drone available with a camera.” said Christoph Strecha, CEO and founder of Pix4D.
The 500g drone, when used with the Pix4Dcapture mobile flight planning app, automatically scans selected areas by taking images customized for Pix4Dmapper Mesh desktop software, where they are processed to produce photorealistic 3D models.
“Thanks to our software, it can generate beautiful and interesting 3D models for real estate applications and even be used to 3D print your house,” said Strecha. “Bebop 2 and Pix4D bring an excellent prosumer level of 3D models to real estate agents or asset managers, derived from proven experience with professional drones and Pix4Dmapper Pro.”
Realtors can create their own 3D models and publish them online and show prospective buyers the property in 3D.
