    Mixing work with hobbies...

    I use photogrammetry a lot at work. If you don't know what that is the modern methods of it uses DSLR cameras with software for 3D point extraction and visualization. At work I photograph and model things that are geology or paleontology related.

    Here is one side of a Gruen V4 pocket watch movement that you can turn and spin in a 3D space.

    Will try to play around with this more in the next week or so...

    I'm a retired lawyer. Before retirement, sometimes in court I would look at my watch. Does that count?

    Btw, the 3D imaging is deeply cool.

    I work at a desk in IT, so unfortunately no integration apart from checking when I can leave... On that note, it's nearly lunchtime!

    Here is an earlier try with the 3D modeling; I made the model before I did the Gruen. Despite the way it looks it is actually a functioning movement.

    Brought the equipment home from work again and will try something else this weekend.

    Very cool Jack!! When I first saw your 3D sloth dung I was wondering how long it would be until you started doing watches.

    Yeah... Shiny surfaces of any type. I plan to re-do that one.
