A comparison of methods for Non-rigid 3D shape retrieval



Zhouhui Lian, Afzal A. Godil


Non-rigid 3D shape retrieval has become an active and important research topic in content-based 3D object retrieval. The aim of this paper is to measure and compare the performance of state-of-the-art methods for non-rigid 3D shape retrieval. The paper develops a new benchmark consisting of 600 non-rigid 3D watertight meshes, which are equally classified into 30 categories, to carry out experiments for 11 different algorithms, whose retrieval accuracies are evaluated using 6 commonly-utilized measures. Models and evaluation tools of the new benchmark are publicly available on our web site [1].
