I built this rotating base for shooting references for modeling and texturing purposes.
Seems to work pretty good with a wide range of sizes from small objects to people around 1.85 cm and 80 kg.
It has two diferent positions, for 8 shots (45 degrees) and 16 shots (22,5 degrees).
I shooted these images to use them as references for some destruction modeling task which I did some time ago.
