Title: INPUT METHOD FOR MODELING PHYSICAL OBJECTS IN VR/DIGITAL
Abstract:
A method, apparatus, and compute storage in which signals are received (400) from a touch screen (200) against which a 3D object (202) is juxtaposed, the signals being generated by tracing the periphery of the object on the touch screen at consecutive coordinates in two dimensions (2D). A dimension (402) of the 3D object is also determined based on which coordinates the periphery was traced against. Resultant 2D trace signals are output (404) to a 3D modeling module along with the dimension of the 3D object, which uses the trace signals and dimension to generate (406) a 3D image of the 3D object.
