3DInsect brings real world insects into virtual and augmented reality – interactive & with stunning photo realism using photogrammetry. The results are true color, scaled 3D models of the insects that can be viewed, rotated and zoomed.

Now is the time to study these interesting insects and find their natural habitat.

Global warming is already visible in insects behavior. Books expire almost instantly. We want to build a new alternative to traditional books. Service that is easy to update and visually engaging. Combining the latest technologies and custom tools, we are able to create a whole new way of identifying and studying insects. The Team is based in South Karelia, Finland. The idea born as a result of the M. Eng. thesis in 2019. The first virtual model was released in 2020.

Our custom built “photogrammetry scanner” use Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens. One virtual model consists of 19 200 photos. Models that have been published or updated after August 12, 2020 consists of 38 400 – 43 200 photos.
