In constructing three-dimensional models, photogrammetry techniques, particularly close-range photogrammetry techniques, are growing and becoming an alternative, specifically for architectural and historical site modeling. Because they are less costly, simpler, and quicker to complete while producing positive results, there is a great number of photogrammetry software. Still, it is difficult to determine which application provides the best measurement results because user expectations vary. It is necessary to conduct geometric precision and visualization analyses to assess the software's output. For this experiment, 3D models of a building were created using Agisoft Metashape and MicMac. The geometric accuracy calculated by Agisoft Metashape has RMSE values of x=0.025 m, y=0.037 m, and z=0.021 m. RMSE values for the MicMac are x=0.066 m, y=0.129 m, and z=0.118 m. Visually, the Agisoft Metashape-created three-dimensional model offers superior visual results and fewer connection points than the MicMac GUI. On a three-dimensional building model processed with Agisoft Metashape, the generated cloud-to-cloud distance is comparable to the distance between the reference point cloud. Except for the building's rear, the distance between clouds using the MicMac is nearly identical to that of the reference point cloud.
