First off, this may not be the right group, however, it is the closest one I can think of.

I took a few pictures of a computer panel at a known distance, but the angle to a corner would require the use of the 3D Pythagoras theorem (√(x^2 + y^2 + z^2)) See Pythagoras theorem in 3D.

So my questions are thus:

  1. What is the first step?
  2. Will this be possible instead of measuring EVERYTHING?

Pictures will be attached:

  1. Rear Panel - Zoom in to get the exact mm measurement
  2. Rear Panel
  3. Rear Panel
  4. Rear Panel

    $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "extrapolate"? Do you mean "construct a 3D model from a series of images"? $\endgroup$ – Simon F Jan 4 at 18:07
  • $\begingroup$ As in determine the measurements of all the objects and then extrude a panel. $\endgroup$ – John Schultz Jan 4 at 18:47
  • $\begingroup$ Still not sure if I understand your question correctly. Do you want to extract a 2D projection of the surface of the panel so that you can automatically compute all measures from it by providing a reference length? $\endgroup$ – wychmaster Jan 5 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ It would be easier if your images had more parallax $\endgroup$ – joojaa Jan 5 at 23:37
