We present a search engine dedicated to 3D object databases. The originality of the method is to represent models by adjacency graphs of surfacic regions. After segmentation of the 3D surface of a model, regions are described by various shape descriptors. The similarity between graphs is computed by kernels on graphs computed from kernels on walks. These kernel functions take into account both the similarity between regions and their spatial relationship. The search engine performs interactive
