  • Rishabh, thank you for participating in the 2017 Bentley Institute Student Design Competition.
    Yes, you need to capture the entirety of the structure or object you have selected--to create a true 3D model of it. That is why you must capture something that you can photograph from all sides/angles, or from a sufficient distance that you can capture the top (possible with a peaked roof on a building, for instance). We look forward to receiving your submission.
