Direct 3D Pattern Matching in the Domain of Freeform Shapes

Joris S. M. Vergeest, Sander Spanjaard, Yu Song
2002 International Conference in Central Europe on Computer Graphics and Visualization  
We have studied the problem of extracting shape parameters from freeform features in full 3D.  ...  The type and total number of parameters (6+d), and hence the family of template shapes is determined by the type of feature.  ...  During the fit the number of points m is increased from 1% to 100% of the available points in T(p). Strategy D is a user controlled fit process.  ...
