Paris and Eiffel Tower 3D Model

Paris is one of the world’s most popular capital cities, famous for its food, fashion, art, culture and architecture. We have been capturing Paris for some time now and are excited to reveal some first renders of our model. We have captured 13km sq of the city including the famous Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Sacre Coeur and Notre Dame. The features and the terrain were made in LOD2 with the exception of the Eiffel Tower which is LOD4.

Created using the latest Photogrammetric 3D technology and the highest resolution aerial imagery available, our models are unparalleled in their accuracy. Paris 3D model is accurate to +-25cm is available in 2 different Levels of Detail (LOD) – LOD1 and LOD2. LOD2 3D Model includes terrain separated into land use (Roads, Green Spaces, Water etc.) and trees positions.

Eder De Souza, one of our most experienced 3D modellers, was responsible for capturing the Eiffel Tower. He explains the process:

“I used Maya to model the Eiffel Tower. The tools in Maya helped me a lot in my approach to the complexity of the building. The Eiffel Tower has a very interesting shape, from the very base to the top there is a great amount of detail everywhere you look. I had to discipline myself and not get lost in the detail of this huge building in order to make sure I met deadlines. I really enjoyed working on the Eiffel Tower as the building is such an iconic landmark of Paris. Everyone recognises this structure and knows exactly how it looks, so that was my challenge, to recreate a complex famous building with crazy shapes with almost no repetition at all in a small space of time”
