Free Silver Birch 3D Scan
Free Silver Birch 3D Scan
In the forest near my home are many different kinds of trees. One of the tree types in that forest is the Silver Birch (Betula pendula). Since it’s one of my favorite trees, I wanted to have a high quality model of this tree type.
So after searching for a good looking tree during a cloudy day, I grabbed my phone (Oneplus Nord 2T) and started photographing it from many angles and distances. The images would later be used for Photogrammetry in the free and opensource program Meshroom from AliceVision.
And as usual, I made this high quality Silver Birch model, for free. The model is retopologized, UV unwrapped and has 8K (baked) textures to create a nice looking asset. As a bonus I created a nice looking scene in this blend file as well.
The low-resolution version of this model, is around 3500 faces. The high detail model (Level 5 in the Multiresolution Modifier of the .blend file) is around 3.5 million faces. You can either use the low-resolution model in combination with the displacement texture, or use the Multiresolution Modifier on a high level to get a highly detailed model.
The Blend file comes without the HDRI (since it’s not CC0 but CC-By). You can download the HDRI for free here. All you need to do is insert it into the World Shader and you’re good to go.
But this Blend file does come with one of my free Tree GOBO’s, so you can see these powerful textures in action.
