AI carpenter can design recreations of furniture from a few photos

University of Washington: Reconstruction of a wooden stool using algorithmsYou're in luck if you have ever seen wooden furniture you want to replicate.James Noeckel from the University of Washington, Seattle, and his collaborators have developed an algorithm that converts photos of wooden objects into 3D models that are detailed enough to be replicated by skilled carpenters.An issue with software that reverse engineers a 3D object such as furniture is that it doesn't have enough data.
