3D Object Classification via Spherical Projections

3D Object Classification via Spherical Projections

In this paper, we introduce a new method for classifying 3D objects. Our main idea is to project a 3D object onto a spherical domain centered around its barycenter and develop neural network to classify the spherical projection. We introduce two...

Window-Shaping: 3D Design Ideation by Creating on, Borrowing from, and Looking at the Physical World

Window-Shaping: 3D Design Ideation in Mixed Reality

We present, Window-Shaping, a mobile, markerless, mixed-reality (MR) interface for creative design ideation that allows for the direct creation of 3D shapes on and around physical objects. Using the sketch-and-inflate scheme, we present a design...
