Rats in Autodesk Portland Office

Well, this is Portland Oregon and yes we are weird or uniquely creative including the placement of small toy ponies attached to old city horse hitching rings and yarn or knit bombings of local statues. In the Autodesk Portland office some of the weird fun culture crept in to our new Portland office in the East stairwell. In this stairwell there are crevices in the brick where there old janky spooky stairs were mounted and then removed to put nice safe stairs in the building during the renovation before we moved in last year. These crevices were great to hold a coffee mug when I was laser scanning (LiDAR) the building during renovation, but someone found a new unique and fun use. Someone placed a small toy car in one and a rubber rat in another.

I love seeing Portland fun and creative weirdness creeping into our building. To the person who did this – I salute you!

Of course being an Autodesk employee, I had to generate a 3D model using ReCap Photo. Using about 40 photos taken with my phone I uploaded to ReCap Photo to generate a 3D textured model using photogrammetry. ReCap Photo is great for everything from creating a 3D mesh from small objects for 3D props or orthopedics, to generating 3D site maps and DEM using photos taken from a drone.
