Title 3D model retrieval
Abstract The topic of this paper is content-based retrieval of 3D models that are represented as triangle meshes. An object from some 3D geometry database can traditionally be accessed using attached structural information such as textual annotation. However, there are frequent requirements for a content-based retrieval of various multimedia contents. A content-based 3D model retrieval system has been implemented and this system is presented here. Models are retrieved by querying using another 3D model where the shape description for the query model is automatically created. The proposed feature vector is invariant with respect to translation, rotation and uniform scaling.
