Since 3D models are becoming more popular, the need for effective methods capable of retrieving 3D models are becoming crucial. Current methods require an example 3D model as query. However, in many cases, such a query is not easy to get. An alternative is using a hand-draw sketch as query. We present a structure-based local approach (STELA) for retrieving 3D models using a rough sketch as query. It consists of four steps: get an abstract image, detect keyshapes, compute a local descriptor, and… CONTINUE READING
