Meshroom is a free, open-source 3D Reconstruction Software based on the AliceVision Photogrammetric Computer Vision framework.
Learn more details about the pipeline on AliceVision website.
Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. It infers the geometry of a scene from a set of unordered photographs or videos. Photography is the projection of a 3D scene onto a 2D plane, losing depth information. The goal of photogrammetry is to reverse this process.

The project is released under MPLv2, see COPYING.md.
Get the project
See INSTALL.md to setup the project and pre-requisites.
Get the source code and install runtime requirements:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/alicevision/meshroom cd meshroom pip install -r requirements.txt
You need to have AliceVision installation in your PATH (and LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Linux/macOS).
- Launch the User Interface
# Windows set PYTHONPATH=%CD% && python meshroom/ui # Linux/macOS PYTHONPATH=$PWD python meshroom/ui
On Ubuntu, you may have conflicts between native drivers and mesa drivers. In that case, you need to force usage of native drivers by adding them to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia-340 PYTHONPATH=$PWD python meshroom/ui
You may need to adjust the folder
/usr/lib/nvidia-340 with the correct driver version.
- Launch a 3D reconstruction in command line
# Windows: set PYTHONPATH=%CD% && # Linux/macOS: PYTHONPATH=$PWD python bin/meshroom_photogrammetry --input INPUT_IMAGES_FOLDER --output OUTPUT_FOLDER
See the Meshroom wiki for more information.
