Can we make a CAD model by taking pics of an object from different viewing angles?

The thing is I need a software which can convert the pics of an object into a 3d model that can be transferred to ANSYS for analysis.
If you have any idea, please help
Thanks

Photogrammetry might be what you are after.
Many of the programs are marketed for drone based imagery, but they also work fine with handheld cameras. I've used this program a bit: https://www.agisoft.com/
The results are not perfect, but they are surprisingly good.

Autodesk has a free program called ReCap, but read the terms of use. I believe they make the claim that they own all of your data if you use their software.

There is a really good tutorial/overview of the process here: https://www.3dscanstore.com/blog/3d-scanning-reflective-objects
