The new ImageStitch was nice functionality added in v13, but is there anything available for constructing meshes (with color textures) from a bag of 2D images (taken at different angles/positions)?

You can reconstruct surfaces (with as little as 10-20ish photos) easily on some mobile apps like widar, and many python implementations exist for this problem that are efficient, most prominently NGP from Nvidia.

I would like to know, what has been done on this topic for wolfram language?

To get started, here are a few simple test sets containing 10s of jpegs showing an object at different angles with uniform backgrounds: https://github.com/AlansCodeLog/photogrammetry-test-sets

Here's the code to get the first one, which is 33 images of a rock:

files=ExtractArchive[%, $TemporaryDirectory];
images=Import /@ %

enter image description here


Here are some links to the research on Photogrammetry and a few relevant tools:
