Volumetric shape description of range data using "Blobby Model"

  title={Volumetric shape description of range data using "Blobby Model"},
  author={Shigeru Muraki},
Recently in the field of computer vision, there have been many attempts to obtain a symbolic shape description of an object by fitting simple primitives to the range data of the object. In this paper, we introduce the "Blobby Model" for automatically generating a shape description from range data. This model can express a 3D surface as an isosurface of a scalar field which is produced by a number of field generating primitives. The fields from many primitives are blended with each other and can… CONTINUE READING
