Humans perceive some objects more complex than others and learning or describing a particular object is directly related to the judged complexity. Towards the goal of understanding why the geometry of some 3D objects appear more complex than others, we conducted a psychophysical study and identified contributing attributes. Our experiments conclude that surface variation, symmetry, part count, simpler part decomposability, intricate details and topology are six significant dimensions that… CONTINUE READING
