Since the local feature-based methods recognize interior content and utilize the rich information of the sketches and 2D views of 3D model, this paper proposes a novel sketch-based 3D model retrieval algorithm which utilizes local feature descriptors to describe the object shape. Firstly, we propose PCA-DAISY descriptor to create the efficient local feature descriptors. The DAISY descriptor consists of a vector from the convolved orientation maps with Gaussian filters. The Principal Component

Then, our Fisher coding algorithm quantizes the PCA-DAISY descriptor by using the Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM), which can be understood as a "probabilistic visual vocabulary" and brings large improvements in accuracy. The experimental results demonstrate that our approach which combines these two algorithms significantly outperforms several latest sketch-based retrieval approaches.
