  • Kinematic Skeleton Extraction Based on Motion Boundaries for 3D Dynamic Meshes 

    Benhabiles, Halim; Lavoué, Guillaume; Vandeborre, Jean-Philippe; Daoudi, Mohamed (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    This paper presents a precise kinematic skeleton extraction method for 3D dynamic meshes. Contrary to previous methods, our method is based on the computation of motion boundaries instead of detecting object parts characterized ...
  • Spectral Analysis Driven Sparse Matching of 3D Shapes 

    Darom, Tal; Keller, Yosi (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this work we present an approach for matching three-dimensional mesh objects related by isometric transfor- mations and scaling. We propose to utilize the Scale invariant Scale-DoG detector and Local Depth SIFT mesh ...
  • Automated Contextual Annotation of B-Rep Cad Mechanical Components Deriving Technology and Symmetry Information to Support Partial Retrieval 

    Li, K.; Shahwan, A.; Trlin, M.; Foucault, G.; Léon, Jean-Claude (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Mechanical components are often related to technological meaning: it is a screw, a ball bearing, . . . Technological meaning relates to the notion of function which, in turn, refers to the environment of a component. Here, ...
  • Effective Shapes Generation for Bayesian CAD Model Reconstruction 

    Bey, Aurelien; Chaine, Raphaelle; Marc, Raphael; Thibault, Guillaume (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We address the reconstruction of CAD models from 3D point clouds, assuming that an a priori CAD model, roughly similar to the scene to reconstruct, is given. The problem can be solved using a Bayesian approach which states ...

    Saavedra, Jose M.; Bustos, Benjamin; Schreck, Tobias; Yoon, Sang Min; Scherer, Maximiliam (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Since 3D models are becoming more popular, the need for effective methods capable of retrieving 3D models is becoming crucial. Current methods require an example 3D model as query. However, in many cases, such a query is ...
