3D Shape Segmentation with Geometric Deep Learning

02/02/2020 ∙ by Davide Boscaini, et al. ∙ 0

The semantic segmentation of 3D shapes with a high-density of vertices could be impractical due to large memory requirements. To make this problem computationally tractable, we propose a neural-network based approach that produces 3D augmented views of the 3D shape to solve the whole segmentation as sub-segmentation problems. 3D augmented views are obtained by projecting vertices and normals of a 3D shape onto 2D regular grids taken from different viewpoints around the shape. These 3D views are then processed by a Convolutional Neural Network to produce a probability distribution function (pdf) over the set of the semantic classes for each vertex. These pdfs are then re-projected on the original 3D shape and postprocessed using contextual information through Conditional Random Fields. We validate our approach using 3D shapes of publicly available datasets and of real objects that are reconstructed using photogrammetry techniques. We compare our approach against state-of-the-art alternatives.
