M81, 3D transformation

This is example image of three dimensional transformation.
Original 2D image of M81 is now turned to freely rotatable object.
Pretty far from actual astro photography, umh...
Interesting tough.

list of SW.

TrueSpace 3D software
Bmp2Cnc for grasyscale to height

Thanks J-P. A tutorial would be most welcome.

I took an image of M104 in January that had so much detail in the upper portion of the galaxy that I've been trying unsucessfully to do a partial 3D rotation to see more of it face on.
