Common Sense Machines (CSM) is a new AI software that converts 2D images into 3D models. The tool has been specially trained to reconstruct and model objects based on individual photos.
According to the developers, users can simply upload an image, ideally without a background. CSM then generates a 3D model of the subject within a short time, which can be used for 3D printing, for example.
The quality of the results is significantly higher than with text-based AI modeling tools. However, when reconstructing from the front side, only assumptions for the back side are possible. CSM is therefore best suited for organic and simple geometric shapes.
CMS also provides a link to the 2D image generator MidJourney. This allows AI-generated 2D images to be used directly for modeling. CSM is also working on a video-to-3D feature and API.
According to the developer, use will initially be free of charge, with a premium model planned later. Just a few days ago, we compiled an overview of AI generators, which can create text input 3D models. In the list you can also find the service Kaedim 3D, which has a similar approach as CSM.
