This question has come up a few times. When working with small objects, some people have tried moving the object each time they take the next picture. One person even suggested placing the object on a rotatable turntable. This is not a good practice when using Project Photofly to create 3D models from photographs. Project Photofly actually uses elements from the background to align the images when constructing a photo scene. It assumes the object is stationary. Instead of a turntable, it's actually better to place an object on an irregular surface, e.g. piece of paper with scribbles on it, as opposed to a solid background. Check out the background we used at AU:
