123D Catch

After attending Autodesk University 2011 last week, a few of us were fortunate to visit Zion National Park, where I was able to snap a few pictures. The lighting was great, so I decided to throw a few of the pictures to the Autodesk 123D Catch service (formerly Project Photofly) and see what it could do. In my personal experience it has always been a challenge using regular buildings. The software seems to do much better with irregular shapes with well defined textures. Here is what I got back which is by far my most successful attempt using the service. Have you given 123D a try?
