public texture maps from 3d models made with 123D Catch, website, twitter bot

tex-archive mines public models on the community website for Autodesk’s 123D Catch–a software that creates 3D models from photographs. These models form a diverse collection ranging from ancient artifacts to contemporary ephemera. tex-archive extracts the texture maps from the publicly uploaded models. These are 2D images used by the computer to skin the three-dimensional model and make it appear realistic. The result is an image never before been seen by human eyes. Here the nature of the image has changed–from a means to an end. To mark that change, tex-archive catalogues the images in the Library of Congress, via Twitter.
