OpenAI, the Elon Musk-founded artificial intelligence business that created the well-known DALL-E text-to-image generator, released POINT-E on Tuesday. POINT-E can create 3D point clouds directly from text commands.

Point-E requires one GPU and a few minutes, unlike existing systems like Google's DreamFusion, which often take multiple hours and GPUs to make their visuals.

Many different businesses and applications use 3D modeling. The 3D modeling abilities are essential for the CGI effects of contemporary blockbuster movies, video games, VR and AR, NASA's moon crater mapping missions, Google's heritage site protection programs, and Meta's vision for the Metaverse.

Despite NVIDIA's efforts to automate object generation and Epic Game's RealityCapture mobile software, which enables anybody with an iOS phone to scan real-world things as 3D photos, producing photorealistic 3D images is still a resource- and time-intensive operation.
