Mike Hass has an interesting look at using captured Autodesk 123D Catch models in Autodesk Maya, demonstrating the pipeline between capturing the photographs needed for the 3D model and using 123D Catch to generate a high resolution model from those photographs, then using that model in Maya.

integrating models from 123D Catch into Maya

In Part One below, Mike provides an introduction to 123D Catch if you have never used it, and shares some tips for getting better results for something that can be used in Maya. Mike is using the 123D Catch Desktop application in this demonstration, however 123D Catch is also available for devices.
